IBM has recruited two more major shipping carriers to join the blockchain platform it owns with container giant Maersk.
A blockchain-powered platform built by IBM and Maersk and designed to facilitate international trade is to launch in Russia.
IBM and Maersk's shipping blockchain has finally recruited two major marine cargo carriers after early efforts floundered.
Trade finance DLT platform we.trade is seeking partnerships with other networks, with TradeLens and Tradeshift as prime candidates.
Since Maersk and IBM launched TradeLens 10 months ago, only one other carrier has joined the network. As those involved admit, that's not enough.
TradeLens has attracted a wide variety of entities ranging from port operators and customs authorities to logistics companies and even rival carriers.
