Electronic processing cuts the paper mountain

Amit Nag, Gabriel Pinto, Pascoal Fernandes and Partha Rathinam show off the amount of paper that is no longer being generated every month by GAC’s Global Hub Services, thanks to the electronic processing of port disbursement account invoices.

As well as reducing the mountain of physical paperwork, electronic processing also delivers:


More efficient internal procedures

Shorter lead times for approval of final port disbursement accounts

Reduced courier costs and carbon footprint from the transport of documents

An estimated equivalent of 44 fewer trees felled every year that would otherwise be needed to produce paper for the physical documents
