More than 90 percent of today’s international trade travels by ocean carrier. So there’s little debate that carriers like you provide the most critical link in any international supply chain. Yet there continues to be precious little clarity in knowing and relaying the status of cargo as it makes its way to its destination.

That all changes with TradeLens. Powered by blockchain technology, TradeLens gives you the ability to provide near real-time container-tracking visibility to your customers while ushering in a new era of digitization and optimized workflows. It’s a long-awaited inflection point for you, your customers and your supply chain.

The demands of an ever-changing global trade landscape require ocean carriers to respond with more than a series of bolted-on, stovepiped  solutions. Across the industry, the time has come to embrace full digitization.

Tradelens is the leading platform to enable this, offering the ability to digitize documents, automate many repetitive tasks through the use of blockchain smart contracts and create new ways of working across your supply chain.
