Ocean Freight Industry EIPP Standards Advisory Board
Hamburg Süd is a member of the Ocean Freight Industry EIPP Standards Advisory Board which includes executives representing the leading ocean carriers and global freight forwarders. The mission is to lead the ocean freight industry, as a community, towards greater efficiency in Electronic Invoice Presentment and Payment through standardization and automation.
One of the first initiatives of the EIPP Standards Advisory Board will be to prioritize and address leading causes of “friction” within the EIPP process such as the inefficiencies of the dispute management process.
By establishing standards, the EIPP Standards Advisory Board will work towards the greater goal of establishing one common standard that would allow carriers, forwarders and shippers to receive and pay invoices quickly, identify billing errors automatically and more quickly resolve disputes about payments.
