加拿大太平洋铁路加入贸易公司区块链网络

2020-10-14 15:34

 

加拿大太平洋最近加入了TradeLens, IBM和马士基区块链联合倡议,在横贯大陆铁路的文件流程中部署区块链系统。该公司在加拿大和美国都有铁路,可以直接连接东西海岸的主要港口。


TradeLens基于区块链的平台是专门为集装箱航运业“实现安全透明”的信息传输、共享和存储而开发的。该系统通过api集成客户端内部系统。TradeLens使用IBM区块链平台,该平台是基于允许使用的超账本区块链结构。


加拿大太平洋公司希望该平台能加快连接海运和公路运输的多式联运运输商与其他供应链参与者共享文件的速度。“全球航运是一项极其复杂的业务,”加拿大太平洋公司副总裁兼首席信息官Mile Redeker表示。“TradeLens正在改进支持该行业的信息共享流程”。


铁路是第10个加入贸易网络的多式联运承运人。这比世界上大部分最大的集装箱运输公司都要高。全球最大的六家海运公司中,有五家已经使用该平台超过一年。最近,土耳其港口集团伊尔波特控股公司(YILPORT Holdings)整合了数字航运平台以及越南和斯里兰卡的重要港口。该公司计划在2025年前成为全球十大港口运营商。


虽然港口码头是TradeLens会员的最大比例,但包括CP等多式联运运营商在内的其他行业也参与了该平台。迪拜港口物流运营商迪拜世界港口公司(DP World)、渣打银行(Standard Chartered bank)和几个海关部门都是该网络的一部分。

 

Canadian Pacific recently joined TradeLens, the IBM and Maersk blockchain joint initiative, to deploy the blockchain system within the transcontinental railway’s documentation process. The company has tracks in Canada and the U.S. with direct links to major ports on the west and east coasts.

TradeLens’ blockchain-based platform was specifically developed to “enable the secure and transparent” transfer, sharing and storage of information in the container-shipping industry. The system integrates the client’s in-house systems via APIs. TradeLens uses the IBM Blockchain Platform, which is based on the permissioned Hyperledger Fabric blockchain.

Canadian Pacific expects the platform to expedite how intermodal shippers – those that connect shipping with road transport – to share documents with other supply chain participants. “Global shipping is a profoundly complex business,” said Canadian Pacific VP and CIO Mile Redeker. “TradeLens is improving the information-sharing processes that support the industry”.

The railway is the tenth intermodal carrier to join the TradeLens’s network. That’s on top of a large proportion of the world’s biggest container shipping firms. Five of the top six ocean carriers have been using the platform for over a year. More recently, Turkish ports group YILPORT Holdings, which plans to become a top ten global operator by 2025, integrated the digital shipping platform, as well as significant ports in Vietnam and Sri Lanka

Although Port terminals represent the largest proportion of TradeLens members, other industry sectors, including intermodal operators like CP, also participate in the platform. Dubai’s port logistics operator DP WorldStandard Chartered bank, and a few Custom Departments are all part of the network.
