Drive the digital transformation of your supply chain with technology that provides true end-to-end visibility and unprecedented collaboration.
Cross-border containerised supply chains are some of the largest and most complex business ecosystems in the world today. It’s not uncommon for 30 independent parties, 100 people, and up to 200 exchanges of information to be connected to a single shipment. In the face of this increased complexity, it’s important to have a solution that can help maintain the efficiency of supply chain operations.
TradeLens is a secure platform, underpinned by blockchain, that lets you stay ahead of your shipments with real-time data, direct from the source. These benefits extend to you and your trading partners, forming the foundation of a new generation of supply chain transparency.
PUMA’s in-house customs department used to spend upwards of two hours per day checking the status of their containers at port terminals. To overcome this lack of visibility and receive data directly from the source, PUMA onboarded the terminals onto the TradeLens platform. This system implementation was completed in only three hours.
TradeLens enabled the terminals to publish updates about the containers. As a result, all of the terminals at the port were equipped to share real-time notifications for 95% of the 200+ containers received each week. This also helped PUMA reduce delays and detention and demurrage costs.
