The Argentinian government’s General Port Administration (AGP) has launched a tender to renew and modernise its blockchain-based e-PuertoBUE Electronic Document Exchange platform, currently in use at the Port of Buenos Aires.
This digital platform is used to carry out the electronic logistics transactions of the actors in the jurisdiction of the Port of Buenos Aires, such as the request for stopovers where the lines and maritime agents, the concession terminals, the naval prefecture and the Customs interact.
Resolution 8/2021 published in the Official Gazette specifies that the platform to be developed must be based on secure, standardised and interoperable technological tools, the AGP said.
Additionally, it must be developed in a way that allows the actors of the foreign trade chain to share information effectively and efficient, as well as adequate cargo traceability.
The technological improvements will incorporate new documentary processes, such as: services to the ship, both when entering and during its stay at the dock, Electronic Free Debt, Administration of Railway Formations, Electronic Consignment Note and the Dangerous Goods Declaration process.
For this, a modern platform of processes will be used that will be ‘tokenized’ in the blockchain network that will act as a digital notary, preventing alterations of the information, carrying out traceability and providing a secure framework, among others.
For all the above, the modernization of e-PuertoBUE will place the Port of Buenos Aires as a pioneer and leader of innovation in the region in the use of these disruptive technologies, within the framework of the Transport Modernization Plan carried out by the Ministry of Transport. of the Nation.
