A client partner is any organization you work closely with to share events and documents via the TradeLens platform, either as a client or as a supplier.
A client partner is different from a network member in that they provide specific events and documents at the request of their client who has purchased the TradeLens platform.
By agreeing to work through the TradeLens platform, a client partner can help to support your supply chain goals. Instead of sharing information over emails and paper, these partners can upload and share documentation to a single platform.
Inland Transportation: confirms pick-up, delivery to port, pick-up from destination port, and final delivery.
Customs Broker: receives upstream documents, creates and uploads customs clearance documents, files customs declarations.
Freight Forwarders / Third-Party Logistics Providers (3PLs): places bookings, send shipping instructions, manages POs, and uploads packing lists and commercial invoices.
Inland Container Services: Warehouses and distribution centers and CFS locations can contribute container stuffing and stripping events, receipt of goods confirmation, and any additional documentation uploads.
