End-to-end supply chain visibility and secure data sharing

TradeLens to be discontinued by 31 March 2023

As announced by A.P. Moller - Maersk and IBM on 29 November 2022, the TradeLens platform is being discontinued and will no longer function after 31 March 2023.

At MSC we continue to believe that data and document sharing, and the wider digitalisation of our industry, remains essential to make container shipping and logistics more transparent, efficient, secure, and sustainable. We remain involved in other initiatives that aim to eliminate supply chain inefficiencies and improve visibility for our customers. Learn more about MSC’s digital solutions.

TradeLens network

At MSC, we are always looking for ways to make life easier for our customers and drive our industry towards a safer, more efficient, more sustainable digital future. That’s why we have joined the TradeLens network as a foundation carrier.

TradeLens is a blockchain-based data platform where stakeholders in the entire supply chain, as one interconnected ecosystem, can share information and trade documents in near real-time.

  • Near real-time events
  • Efficient processes
  • Secure document-sharing 

Better collaboration

TradeLens connects every party involved in the global supply chain, including shippers, freight forwarders, ocean carriers, ports and terminals, inland transportation operators, customs authorities and more.


By enabling all of these organisations to collaborate and share logistics data and documents in one place, it helps to simplify processes, drive innovation and facilitate global trade.

Better visibility

The TradeLens dashboard gives you a single, holistic view of every milestone event across your supply chain in near real-time, no matter how many independent parties are involved.

Having this clear and actionable information at your fingertips helps you make informed, data-driven decisions – and ultimately provide a better customer experience.  

Time and cost saving

By automating manual workflows and reducing operational costs, TradeLens can help to save time on emails, phone calls, searching across multiple platforms and manual data entry. Log in from anywhere, at any time, to find all of the details you need in one place.


TradeLens enables you to swap paper-based and manual processes for faster, greener digital documents and data-sharing.
