Hapag-Lloyd and Ocean Network Express (ONE) have completed integration onto the TradeLens platform, helping ensure a more timely and consistent view of logistics data for their containerized freight around the world.
Since the completion of multiple pilot projects, the carriers are now working to help their clients and business partners across all major regions.
They join A.P. Moller – Maersk, as well as CMA CGM and MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company and five other carriers already inputting shipping data into the TradeLens platform.
Rolf Habben Jansen, CEO, Hapag-Lloyd, said, “Our customers will clearly benefit from increased transparency, accuracy, speed and efficiency in their supply chains – leading to reduced cost.”
Jeremy Nixon, CEO, ONE, also commented, “We believe TradeLens can bring together all parties in the supply chain to the digital ecosystem where customers can get seamless, transparent and secure sharing of shipping milestones and trade documents.
“With its open standards and open governance, it can benefit our customers and the entire industry to drive for digitalization and automation.”
Mike White, CEO GTD Solutions and Head, TradeLens said the inability to share information is one of the biggest barriers for global trade.
“By addressing this problem, the TradeLens ecosystem has grown rapidly, and the onboarding of Hapag-Lloyd and ONE along with their customers helps extend the value of TradeLens across the entire TradeLens ecosystem, enabling connectivity to two-thirds of global containerized freight for all customers and other permissioned parties through a single platform.
“All participants benefit from reduced manual processes, while also streamlining processes from automation and improved forecasting.”
