03.05.2022 IGTC Survey on Electronic Trading Documentation April 26-May 13
IGTC is inviting grain trade companies to fill in its new survey on electronic trading documentation as we assess change to identify opportunities for engagement to support business interests. The survey aims to collect information about digitalization and innovation in the grains sector, focussing on adoption at national, regional and global level across truck, rail, containers and bulk marine vessel transportation.

This initiative is part of the work of the IGTC's Working Group on Electronic Trading Documentation and is a valuable opportunity to gain global and regional industry perspectives similar to the report from the survey conducted in 2016 (here).
