CMA CGM and MSC announced that they are now integrated with the TradeLens platform. The digital platform runs on the IBM Cloud and IBM Blockchain and was jointly developed by IBM and AP Moller – Maersk.

The digital transformation promoted by the platform lasted more than a year and required considerable investment in new API features. A milestone in the process was the completion of a pilot project with 15 customers involving more than 3,000 exclusive shipments, 100,000 events, and 6,000 containers to ensure that the platform distributes and shares shipment data across multiple supply chains.

TradeLens members use the platform to connect to the ecosystem and share information needed for their shipments based on permissions, without sharing confidential data. TradeLens allows near-real-time access to source data, increases the quality of information, provides a comprehensive view of the data as cargo moves around the world, and helps to create a more secure transaction record.

Launched in 2018, the TradeLens ecosystem now includes more than 175 organizations, covering more than 10 sea carriers and covering data from more than 600 ports and terminals. It has tracked 30 million container shipments, 1.5 billion events, and approximately 13 million published documents.

Recently, new ports and terminals have been added, such as the commercial port of Vladivostock, DP World, PT Salam Pacific Indonesia Lines (SPIL), Port base, QTerminals and Hamad Port, SSA Marine’s Manzanillo International Terminal – Panama (MIT-Panama), Shipwaves, South Asia Gateway Terminals, and Yilport Holding.
