TradeLens connects global supply chains


Transform your container logistics by freeing it from legacy data systems, manual document handling and poor visibility.

Reliable information on estimated and actual milestones for your shipments can be hard to come by and not having the right documents in the hand of the right participant can stop a shipment in its tracks.

Tradelens offers a consistent and holistic view of shipment event data and corresponding documents, all delivered from directly connected logistics partners. It's a single source of truth shared by - and with - permissioned supply chain partners for collective success.

Digitize your bill of ladings with the Tradelens eBL

Introducing the TradeLens eBL

The first truly end-to-end digital electronic bill of lading solution that provides shippers, cargo owners, freight-forwarders, and carriers a streamlined and secure process for the issuance, transfer and surrender of original bills of lading.

The TradeLens eBL, underpinned by blockchain, digitizes the paper BL capturing the nuance and flexibility an original bill has traditionally performed in business processes.
