Get clarity, reduce inefficiencies and achieve third-party alignment on your trade documents.
Do less paperwork
You no longer need to print or email attachments of your shipping documents. With TradeLens, documents are part of a fully digital process. Digital documents improve collaboration, visibility, and provide immediate awareness to all permissioned parties of any change to a document.
Collaborate with other parties on documents
Co-create the documents you need with your supply-chain partners. Give them all the information they need: provide visibility of document events, including uploaded, retrieved, and surrendered to downstream partners. All while keeping the document data completely private.
Receive events and notifications for documents
Notifications identify timely data that are relevant to your business. Through TradeLens, you can set notifications for all major transport events, including all events related to documents, like when a bill of lading is issued. For more on notifications visit this article.
Gain accuracy and efficiency
Create, share and access documents in standardized JSON format. This allows data to be digitally read and used by others along the supply chain, giving you scope for greater automation, efficiency and accuracy.
Achieve third-party alignment
Have all your permissioned parties aligned on document contents and timings, with sensitive documents like bills of lading isolated in a channel accessible only by members of that channel.
Have clear version control
TradeLens keeps all your trade documents in one place, giving you access to the latest version first. This helps your work to run smoothly, while reducing any chance of version errors.
Maintain a robust audit trail
The TradeLens-permissioned blockchain ensures all trade documents are permanently traceable. Maintain an immutable audit trail, with clear versions for structured and unstructured formats.
