Control and facilitate trade with reliable supply chain information

Customs Authorities and clearance processes are increasingly recognized as a critical asset for a country’s trade ambitions. Balancing the need for secure borders with facilitation of trade is a common challenge for governments and customs authorities globally.

Until now. TradeLens gives customs authorities unparalleled visibility into supply chain activities with verified, trusted and near real-time data shared by supply chain participants. As a result, you can digitize your customs clearance process, improve compliance and facilitate legitimate trade.

Learn how TradeLens, powered by blockchain technology, is helping government authorities around the world reduce friction by directly connecting them to reliable supply chain data and structured customs documents.


Today’s customs authorities face the daunting challenge of monitoring the flow of goods from an increasingly complex supply chain – and not all supply chain participants have honest intent. There are fraudulent documents, counterfeit goods, misdeclaration of values and HS codes –the list goes on.

TradeLens can help customs with trusted data verified by ecosystem members across the supply chain to maximize trade compliance and minimize revenue leakage.
