Yilport recently joined Maersk-IBM developed TradeLens platform so as to improve its efficiency and boost the digitization within the operations. Namely, TradeLens cooperation started in July 2020 with data integration from YILPORT Gebze and Gemport Terminals to the blockchain based platform.
Having as a main concern to enhance efficiency, Yilport teams completed the full integration with TradeLens in a short time.
In fact, data exchanges are provided via API messages, and 6 main messages are operational between Yilport and TradeLens.
These messages are; gate in, gate out, vessel load, vessel discharge, actual load date list and actual discharge date list. The goal is to replace the old generation data exchange with near instant data flows.
In light of the situation, Yilport Holding CIO Mark Wooton, noted:
By working with TradeLens YILPORT Holding will accelerate the digitization of global trade for importers and exporters across our network. Modernizing the processes through which logistics operates is critical to building more robust and efficient supply chains which will help with economic development and value creation for all parties.
For the records, TradeLens blockchain solution provides controlled, permissioned access to secure and immutable transportation documents while bringing together stakeholders such as shipping carriers, ports, customs offices, and other players in the ecosystem through its platform.
Joining a technology platform like TradeLens will add to our capability to deliver best-in-class service and visibility to our supply chain partners. With all terminals, we continue to future-proof our business and offer innovation to our clients and communities.
