Cái Mép International Terminal (CMIT) of Vietnam has joined the TradeLens blockchain platform.

On Dec. 19 a local publication made the announcement. CMIT is located in Ho Chi Minh City of Vietnam.

CMIT is one of the largest terminals in the Cái Mép-Thị Vải deep-water gateway port complex that provides a direct link from Vietnam to European, North American and Asian markets.

The general director of CMIT Jan Bandstra said that the decision to join the blockchain-based program was driven by customer demand for instant shipping data. Having transparent, accessible cargo data is essential for the complexities of the global shipping industry.

CMIT deputy director Nguyen Xuan Ky added:

“A seafood container export from Vietnam to the U.S. has more than 30 shipping milestones and shipment data at more than 10 relevant entities with requirement of close tracking […] real-time information sharing at different stages by different entities in global supply chain will increase considerable efficiency for global trade flows.”
