CHAINLOG RECEIVES STRONG SUPPORT AT ITS LAUNCH AT IAPH BALI
CHAINLOG.net is a “one stop marketplace”, bundling digital information about facilities, companies, service providers and liner services within and between ports.
CHAINLOG.net initiated by the Port of Hamburg with the support of the Global Institute of Logistics was formally launched at the International Association of Ports and Harbors World Ports Conference in Bali. CHAINLOG.net reflects the growing momentum behind multilateral cooperation between ports which is gaining more and more traction.
For the first time, port users will be able to access the important data needed to design their maritime logistics supply chain. For instance, cargo owners that source product from Vietnam can search CHAINLOG.net for the nearest container port, a listing of recommended agents and haulers to collect and deliver purchased the product to that port, the shipping line which connects to the port of delivery and for service providers at the arrival port.
The idea for CHAINLOG came from the chainPORT industry group. chainPORT is the world’s first multilateral alliance between seaports and has been developed in direct response to the changing economic and ecological landscape facing Port Authorities; increased port completion, economic shocks impacting trade volumes and more stringent environmental standards.
CHAINLOG.net reflects the first step by port authorities to embrace the digital era and has the potential to migrate from simple data sharing to become a total visibility platform for the global maritime logistics chain.
CHAINLOG.net enables users to easily access a comprehensive overview:
- Of the capacity and infrastructure at world ports as well as a searchable database of logistics service providers at each port.
- The sailing schedules for each participating port enabling users to key in details of port pairings to find a comprehensive overview of shipping services on the route selected together with contact details for the responsible shipping line or NVO
Participation by Port Authorities in CHAINLOG .net demonstrates:
- To cargo owners and shipping lines that the Port Authorities are part of a system of ports that are central to the global supply chain.
- To Port Authorities stakeholders and its wider community that their port authority is actively promoting the port and its businesses globally.
Please visit www.chainlog.net to view a working model of the platform. For demonstration purposes, please choose the ports of Hamburg and Busan.
