Thailand is integrating IBM and Maersk’s blockchain project to streamline its shipment tracking procedures, according to a local news source.
The Bangkok Post reported that the Customs Department of Thailand will adopt TradeLens, the logistics platform jointly supported by IBM and Maersk as part of the country’s Thailand 4.0 policy. Thailand will be the second member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations to use the platform, following Singapore.
More than 90 different companies have joined TradeLens since its launch. According to the Post, customs officials in Thailand will receive notifications when shipping containers leave their ports of origin, allowing them to better prepare for arrival.
