SMARTER LOGISTICS WITH MORE RELIABLE DATA

Think about the last thing you bought online as a consumer, and the single, direct line of sight into its journey to your front door. 

The same can’t be said for your shipments. Each could be connected to as many as 30 independent parties and 100 people, generating up to 200 exchanges of information. Multiply that by the hundreds or thousands of shipments you’re responsible for, and the complexity and risk you deal with regularly is staggering. 

But with TradeLens — powered by blockchain technology — you can have a single line of sight across all supply chain activities. This means more reliability in getting goods to market, more agility in responding to changes in customer demand, and more collaboration in cross-organizational automation. Learn how TradeLens handles millions of daily milestone events and hundreds of thousands of shipping documents each month, changing the way the world ships.

A recent study concluded that 70 percent of organizations have visibility gaps in their supply chains. This is often most pronounced during maritime shipments between buyers and sellers — the longest and most error-prone leg in the supply chain journey. Reliable information on estimated and actual milestones can be hard to come by, and not having the right documents in the hands of the right participants can stop a shipment in its tracks. Visibility gaps on loading, discharge, transshipment and empty returns put client relationships on edge and negatively impact the bottom line for all involved.

But with verified, trusted data fed to and shared via TradeLens, you can control and ensure the authenticity of critical documents, easily identify exceptions and more. With increased peace of mind for data accuracy and availability, you can feel more confident in early planning and make better decisions overall.

In the supply chain world, most participants are both customers and suppliers. As a customer, your expectations are grounded in the quality of the products you buy – and also in the timeliness and service associated with receiving them.

TradeLens makes this possible in powerful new ways, uniting permissioned participants through blockchain technology to deliver a single, holistic and trusted view of milestone events across the supply chain.
