Yilport terminals join TradeLens


Yilport has become the latest maritime stakeholder to join TradeLens after its Gebze and Gemport terminals were integrated onto the blockchain platform.

In a statement, the terminal operator said it will use TradeLens to “accelerate the digitisation of global trade” by “modernizing the processes by which logistics operate is critical to building a robust and more efficient supply chain”.

Additionally, it said TradeLens will “contribute to delivering best-in-class service and visibility to supply chain partners” for its brand and operations.

The data integration of the two terminals to the blockchain-based platform began in July 2020. 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.

“By working with TradeLens Yilport Holding will accelerate the digitization of global trade for importers and exporters across our network,” said Yilport Holding CIO Mark Wooton.

“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.”

“We are excited to work with Yilport and its extensive international footprint,” Thomas Sproat, Senior Director Network Development, GTD Solution Inc.  

“Working with innovative ports and terminals we can jointly promote the benefits of a truly global digitally connected supply chain.

“Earlier visibility of containerized cargo for those managing assets within the supply chain allows for improved yard planning, as well as the ability to offer new services to importers and exporters who rely on ports and terminals as a key element of the global supply chain.

Yilport’s Terminal Operating Systems Manager Orkun Cakir also commented that: 

“As Yilport we are now a part of one of the largest global logistics ecosystems.

“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.”
