IBM And Maersk Introduce TradeLens: A Global Blockchain Shipping Solution

While cryptocurrencies are the hot deal around markets now due to the sheer amount of uses and different altcoins available, some people often forget about the technology that fuels cryptocurrency, and that it has a plethora of applications that could potentially revolutionize some other aspects of our lives. Blockchain lives as a real tech separated from cryptocurrencies, capable of being applied in several interesting and useful ways. IBM, one of the giants in the field of cloud technology has partnered with Maersk, one of the world biggest logistics and shipments companies to create TradeLens, a comprehensive solution to apply blockchain to the shipping business as a whole.
But more important than this is that fact that the system will be implemented by more than 20 ports all over the world, that have agreed to use the system as early adopters: during a test that was run for more than twelve months, they found no problems with the implementation and application of the system.
IBM has been leaning heavily on the cloud business of their company, and that has made them able to lift their sinking ship. From being an old tech company to back up cryptocurrencies and help banks to implement experimental blockchain systems, they have indeed made a 180-degree turn on their policy and it has turned out pretty well for them.
According to the PR statement, the system was heavily tested, and more than 234 million shipping events were recorded at the platform, from simple arrivals to confusing charge divisions, a thing that gives testament to the robustness of this solution, that also includes a document plugin to simplify paperwork for all parties involved.
To IBM, adoption was the name of the game here, so they partnered with none other than Maersk, a global shipment container logistic company to better understand the movement of the shipping ecosystem and further improve interoperability between all actors involved.
An important move for blockchain solutions, that prove that these decentralized apps can be efficient in real time applications other than cryptocurrencies.
