MPA to kickstart digital bunkering initiative on 1 November

It will become the world's first port to implement electronic bunker delivery notes.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) will launch the digital bunkering initiative on 1 November, making it the first port to implement electronic bunker delivery notes (e-BDN).

The initiative will help boost efficiency during bunkering processes. 

Issuance of digital bunkering documents will save 40,000 man-days per year for the bunker industry. 

The MPA encourages ship owners, bunker suppliers, operators, and crew to adopt the new system.

MPA plans to make digital bunkering a requirement by the end of 2024.
