Portbase And TradeLens To Create Global Ecosystem Of Carriers And Ports Via Digital Port Infrastruct
It has been reported that Portbase has successfully completed the first phase of its integration with blockchain-based platform TradeLens, as together, they will handle operations and core processes for ports in Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
However, by going forward, these upgrades will be powered by TradeLens’ blockchain infrastructure.
Iwan van der Wolf, the Managing Director of Portbase, explained how blockchain is being used to more effectively organize the company’s operations.
“It allows all players in the logistical chain to easily, quickly, and securely share data with each other, irrespective of their mutual relationship, enhancing trade for everyone involved. Portbase acts as a data hub for global trade via the Dutch ports and facilitates the connection to regional networks in Northwest Europe.”
Likewise, Norbert Kouwenhoven, the TradeLens Global Authorities Leader for IBM, stated that this chosen construct “allows for upscaling ‘with a mouse click’ and can be easily expanded” as the scope for the ecosystem increases.

Recently, the Port of Rotterdam launched a blockchain-based pilot with some of the world’s leading shipping companies.
Thus, the goal of this pilot was to improve the safety and efficiency of the millions of containers that are unloaded in the port every year.
