#dltledgers integration of TradeLens capabilities will enable corporate organizations to digitize their cross-border trade finance transactions end-to-end.

Today #dltledgers announced a plan to incorporate leading supply-chain digitization capabilities from TradeLens into the #dltledgers multi-party platform for the benefit of cross-border trade participants.  With this collaboration #dlteldgers customers will be able to access critical events and documents for their container shipments through the TradeLens platform. Both companies aim to ease the adoption of digital solutions for exporters and importers of any size and to reduce the global trade finance gap for the millions of SMEs that make up global trade[1].

#dltledgers is a global pioneer and leader in providing cross-border trade and extended supply chain digitization software solutions for corporates. As a Singapore headquartered FinTech, #dltledgers has rapidly grown to deliver industry-leading solutions to corporations, helping them digitize, collaborate, and authenticate their Trade and Supply Chain processes. 

TradeLens has brought together over a thousand major entities involved in the global supply chain and today facilitates the information exchange of about 65% of containerized trade via a platform directly connected to cargo owners, ocean carriers, intermodal operators, port and terminals, customs authorities, and financial institutions.

Leveraging the mutual strengths of each organization allows for digitization, authentication, and collaboration across supply chains, thereby increasing industry innovation, reducing trade friction, and ultimately promoting more global trade.

Samir Neji, Founder, and CP, #dltledgers, Singapore, said, “We are excited about the tremendous potential of this partnership with Tradelens. The partnership reinforces the organizations’ track record and commitment to bringing proven, collaborative, open solutions to the industry. We want to also take forward the Tradelens Core and Tradelens eBL to the next step and have committed resources to drive 30% of the digitation of the world’s container BL via this. This is yet another step in our continuous commitment to building the network and ecosystem to support the corporates and SMEs to tap into such an integrated digital ecosystem. ”
