TradeTrust is a blockchain based interoperability framework between digitally connected trading partners such as governments and businesses for the exchange of digital trade documentation. This allows for secure and efficient trading of digital documentations globally. It is open to all stakeholders involved in cross-border trade and logistics documentation processes, such as shipping lines, shippers/consignees, logistics service providers, financial institutions providing trade financing services, trade and logistics related platform providers and overseas government authorities involved in cross-border shipment clearances.

On 31 Mar 2020, a successful Proof of Concept (PoC) was executed by the Infocomm Media Development Authority of Singapore (IMDA), the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and the Port of Rotterdam (PoR). Through which simulated transactions for electronic bill of ladings (eBLs) were successfully conducted between Rotterdam and Singapore. The next phase of TradeTrust’s development will explore the use of a sidechain to further improve cost and transactional efficiencies.
