Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP) has initiated a collaboration with TradeLens, the joint Maersk and IBM digital platform to connect port and terminal operators, shipping lines, and other actors in the global supply chain using blockchain technology.
The platform supports the digitisation of cargo and logistics data and documentation to replace manual processes, facilitating the secure sharing of information between the various stakeholders in the logistics chain.
“We are constantly working to further develop the Port’s digital DNA as a tool to promote intelligent logistics solutions,” said Povl Dolleris Røjkjær Ungar, COO of Copenhagen Malmö Port.
“TradeLens offers a platform that enables, via innovative blockchain technology, a more secure and transparent cooperation in the logistics chain – thus benefiting all stakeholders by optimising traditional workflows. There is no question that we need to be a part of this.”
The TradeLens platform currently includes over 130 direct connections to ports and terminals, with the effectiveness of the system for all users increasing over time as more connections are added.
“The expansion and scale of our digital ecosystem is the foundation for driving benefits for all on the platform,” said Lars Kastrup, Head of Sales for TradeLens at Maersk.
“With CMP collaborating with TradeLens, we welcome an important Scandinavian port operator in joining our efforts to remove manual tasks and enable digitised workflows across the logistics industry.”
