LOGINK has become the latest participant on the International Port Community Systems Association’s cross-border data exchange platform for supply chains, the Network of Trusted Networks (NoTN).
LOGINK is the Chinese national public information platform for transport and logistics and has been a member of IPCSA (International Port Community Systems Association) since 2019, with the two organisations having a working relationship dating back to 2017.
“A reliable, accurate, accessible channel to synchronise the key status of delivery is critical to global logistics participants, especially against the background of COVID-19,” said Dr Sun, Director-General of LOGINK.
“This is a must-be-done task and, more importantly, we always believe it should be a co-effort achieved by contributors sharing the same values. Sharing, among trusted partners, with reliable techniques, is exactly what the NoTN is pioneering.”
The NoTN is a port-to-port and cross-border data exchange system for supply chains, developed by IPCSA to provide consumers and logistics companies with end-to-end information on their shipments. Via the NoTN platform, Port Community System operators, representing the interests of their customers, can exchange data relating to vessels or voyages and track and trace cargo globally.
“The Network of Trusted Networks provides a secure platform for global data exchange using trusted Port Community Systems or Single Windows,” said Richard Morton, Secretary General of IPCSA.
“Everyone is in control of their own data and decides what data they can and will share, and what data they cannot share. We are delighted to announce this new connection with LOGINK, which expands the NoTN’s geographical coverage to enable even more comprehensive tracking, tracing and visibility in global supply chains.”
