全球集装箱运输公司达飞达(CMA CGM)和地中海航运公司(MSC)已经与IBM和马士基联合发起的TradeLens区块链完成了整合过程。前五大集装箱托运人都在2019年5月宣布与digital network合作。不过,到目前为止,该平台上的任何交易都只是试点。


现在他们在TradeLens上直播,MSC和CMA CGM计划将他们所有集装箱的数据提供给被许可方,这将提高网络使用率。IBM称,这两家运营商的加入意味着,全球近一半的海洋集装箱货物数据将在一个基于区块链的平台上可用。


CMA CGM高级副总裁Marc Bourdon表示:“只有通过共同努力,达成一套共享的标准和目标,我们才能实现目前几乎触及全球航运业每一个部分的数字化转型。”


集成过程花费了一年多的时间,新员工还需要开发新的API功能。其中一个试点项目涉及15个客户,涉及3000多批货物、10万件活动和6000个集装箱。


Ledger Insights询问了IBM关于其他已宣布的运输合作伙伴的状况。除了马士基,ZIM在今年早些时候完成了整合。Hapag-Lloyd和ONE仍在入职过程中,IBM没有对太平国际航运公司(PIL)做出回应,该公司在18个月前与IBM进行了电子提单试运行。自此,太平船务宣布参与新加坡的GeTS平台,该平台有其开放交易区块链。


然而,达飞达gm和MSC的整合是该平台历史上的一个重要里程碑。这两家公司将加入马士基和IBM的行列,成为TradeLens的认证机构,这意味着它们将“拥有专用的区块链节点,可以对加密数据进行验证,以确保这些运营商各自发布的原始文件的真实性”。IBM确认他们是除了IBM和马士基之外唯一的验证者。


此外,CMA CGM和MSC将向他们在世界各地的客户和商业伙伴推广TradeLens的能力和会员资格,这将进一步扩大该网络。


这两家航运公司最近还参与了一项与鹿特丹港的试验,使用区块链令牌授权向运输司机释放集装箱。

 

Global container carriers CMA CGM and the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) have completed the integration process with the TradeLens blockchain, a joint initiative from IBM and Maersk. Both top five container shippers had announced the partnership with the digital network in May of 2019. However, to date any transactions on the platform have been pilots. 

Now that they’re live on TradeLens, MSC and CMA CGM plan to make the data for all their containers available to permissioned parties, which should ramp up the network usage.  IBM claims that the addition of the two carriers means data on nearly half of the world’s ocean container cargo will be available on a single blockchain-based platform.

“Only by working together and agreeing to a shared set of standards and goals are we able to enact the digital transformation that is now touching nearly every part of the global shipping industry,” said Marc Bourdon, CMA CGM SVP.

The integration process has taken over a year and the onboarding involved developing new API capabilities. One of the pilots involved 15-customers with more than 3,000 consignments, 100,000 events and 6,000 containers.

Ledger Insights asked IBM about the status of other announced shipping carrier partners. Apart from Maersk, ZIM completed integration earlier in the year. Hapag-Lloyd and ONE are still in the onboarding process, and IBM didn’t respond about Pacific International Lines (PIL), which ran an electronic Bill of Lading trial with IBM 18 months ago. Since then, PIL announced its participation in the Singapore-based GeTS platform, which has its Open Trade Blockchain.

Nevertheless, CMA CGM and MSC’s integration is an important milestone in the platform’s history. Both corporates will be joining Maersk and IBM as TradeLens’ validators, meaning they will “have dedicated blockchain nodes against which encrypted data can be validated to ensure authenticity as bone fide original documents issued by each of these carriers”. IBM confirmed that they are the only validators apart from IBM and Maersk. 

Additionally, CMA CGM and MSC will be promoting TradeLens capabilities and membership to their clients and business partners across the world, which should further expand the network.

Both shipping firms were also recently involved in a pilot with the Port of Rotterdam to use blockchain tokens to authorize the release of containers to transport drivers.
