The Port of Thessaloniki has become the first Greek Port to integrate with the TradeLens blockchain logistics data platform for the digital exchange of supply chain information.
The move is part of a wider ThPA S.A. (Thessaloniki Port Authority) ‘smart port’ transformation drive, which aims to digitise systems and simplify procedures by reducing manual paper-based processes.
Linking with the TradeLens platform will streamline data exchange among port stakeholders and across the supply chain through direct integrations with more than 180 other ports and terminals, 15+ customs authorities around the world and a variety of intermodal providers.
“The use of the Tradelens platform contributes to the increase of operational efficiency, through better visibility of container flows across multiple modes, while improving the impact on the climate change,” said Executive Chairman of the Board of ThPA S.A., Thanos Liagkos.
“Joining the TradeLens platform is a great step forward for ThPA S.A. – Port of Thessaloniki to lead the change in the Greek intermodal logistics industry, pioneering in the digitisation of the Southeast European supply chain.”
