Norwegian owners sign up to e-invoicing

FIVE major Norwegian shipowners have signed up for  e-invoicing services through the ShipServ TradeNet platform in the last month.

Bergen-based Utkilen, Wilson Ship Management, Seatrans, Solstad and Mowinckel will all go live in the next few months with the ability to receive e-invoices from connected suppliers.

In addition to the Norwegian owners,  a further five major ship suppliers including leading ship chandlers EMS, Seawave and HMS have recently also signed up to use the e-invoicing service.

Over the last few months,  thousands of invoices have been successfully transferred through the platform using an MTML translation service, with many more suppliers and buyers set to come on stream over the next few months.

By using e-invoicing, buyers are able to process invoices quicker into their back-office system, and align with purchase orders and eliminate manual errors. It gives buyers the ability to replace a paper or PDF invoice sent from their supplier with an electronic document capable of loading directly into their purchasing/accounting system.

One of the key benefits of the e-invoicing solution for a buyer is that it provides 24/7 visibility on all its received invoices so a purchasing manager can see exactly when an invoice has entered the system and its progress through the system.

“It makes real sense for us to offer e-invoicing as we can seamlessly integrate it with all our other services such as the KPI reporting dashboard so it gives clients complete transaction visibility,” said Kim Skaarup, Chief Operating Officer.
