Jade Logistics makes a blockchain move

Published by WorldCargo News September 13, 2018

Geneva-based CargoChain has developed a cargo information sharing platform that is focused on information sharing though the development of cost effective and rapidly deployable applications, including blockchain. CargoChain was formed out of Jade Logistics, but has been set up as and operates as a separate, independent company.

“CargoChain’s blockchain solution includes a unique Information Sharing Protocol and deep supply chain functionality that provides the ability to share any type of data, without the restrictions of legacy technology like EDI. The CargoChain Platform also provides tools that allow developers to build and deploy cost-effective applications that solve supply chain problems of any size,” the companies stated.

Tony Davis, Director of Marketing, Jade Logistics Group, explains that all rich cargo information is stored ‘off-chain’ on the CargoChain Platform. “Using Hyperledger Fabric technology, CargoChain stores a hash of all cargo events ‘on-chain’ to their own public blockchain. This approach mitigates the scalability challenges of blockchain when faced with large volumes of rich data, while at the same time providing complete trust in all the information that is stored on the CargoChain Platform.”

Guirec Le Bars, Chief Technology Officer at CargoChain is backing the company to revolutionise supply chain data sharing. “We believe the partnership will revolutionise the way cargo information is shared between global supply chain participants. It will enable the secure distribution of rich cargo information among trusted partners which has previously been unavailable, until now,” he said.

For Jade Logistics, increased collaboration and access to a common set of cargo information are crucial as the logistics industry seeks to drive greater efficiencies and productivity. “With Jade Logistics’ Master Terminal TOS in operation at over 125 terminals worldwide, Jade Logistics and CargoChain are well positioned to play a major role in this exciting new era of global logistics. Both companies will work closely with Jade Logistics’ existing Master Terminal customer base, and their business partners, to assist with their information sharing needs. Initial CargoChain applications are already in development for specific Master Terminal customers as well as pilots for significant supply chain projects.

“As independent players in the industry, Jade Logistics and CargoChain are committed to contributing to a democratised supply chain, that encourages across-the-board collaboration, seamless information sharing, and innovation,” Jade Logistics concluded.

Published by WorldCargo News July 6, 2018

Jade Logistics has won a contract to install its Master Terminal TOS at 14 terminals in Indonesia operated by Pelindo I.

The contract is a major win for Jade Logistics, and its first in SE Asia. “PT Pelabuhan Indonesia I (Pelindo I) has selected the terminal operating system (TOS), Master Terminal, from Jade Logistics, to manage their mixed cargo operations at 14 terminals in the provinces of Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam (Aceh), Sumatera Utara (North Sumatra), Riau, and Riau Islands (Kepulauan Riau). Master Terminal will replace Pelindo I’s legacy systems and will help modernize and optimize their terminal operations,” Jade stated.

The roll out will take place in stages over an 18-month period. The first three terminals in the process of implementing Master Terminal are at the ports of Dumai, Sibolga, and Malahayati, and are set to go live by the third quarter of 2018, with the remaining terminals live by mid 2019.

With a large number of multi purpose terminals, Indonesia is a good fit for Jade’s multi-cargo TOS, which will support the 14 different terminals from a single instance of Master Terminal. After Jade Logistics was spun out from Jade Software Corporation (JSC) last year the company, led by CEO David Lindsay, has pursued an aggressive growth strategy that includes pushing into new markets. Before winning this contract it set up an office in Jakarta.

Commenting on winning the contract with Pelindo I, Jade said: “In support of the Indonesian Government’s Maritime port infrastructure upgrade program, dubbed the Indonesian-sea-toll-road program, Pelindo I (one of four Indonesian state-owned port operators) sought an integrated TOS that supported multiple cargo types and facilities to grow alongside the business. Master Terminal was a clear frontrunner, with a proven track record of handling a mixture of break-bulk, bulk, container and Roll-On/Roll-Off (RORO) cargo. Key functionality such as the ability to integrate with the Government Customs system, InaPortNet, and an SAP finance system, were features that won Pelindo I over”.

Pelindo I has a vision is to become the leading Port Business in Indonesia. “Investing in state-of-the- art technology, such as the Master Terminal application, supplemented with improved operational processes, training, and equipment, will ensure Pelindo I is in a position to handle current and future cargo volumes more efficiently and more cost-effectively,” Jade added.

“We are thrilled to partner with Pelindo I on this project,” remarked Lindsay. “The opportunities for them in this region are immense and we’re looking forward to seeing their coastal hubs, industry and economy grow. We’re excited to play a part in Indonesia’s greater expansion plans and seeing what the future holds.”

Operating smarter: case study with Australian Amalgamated Terminals

Speaking at one of the TOC Europe Sessions was Vincent Macheda, General Manager – Systems & Strategy, Australian Amalgamated Terminals (AAT). Vincent spoke about how the use of innovative, agile and integrated technology, such as Master Terminal, has helped them increase efficiency and streamline processes at their mixed cargo terminal. This presentation was well received by attendees.

Port of Jade Logistics: Master Terminal is the dedicated TOS for mixed cargo terminals

A recurring topic of conversation at TOC Europe was the importance of a dedicated TOS for the mixed cargo market, given the challenges that mixed cargo presents to port operators.

Many visitors to our booth were drawn in by our Port of Jade Logistics illustration which allowed our team to show how Master Terminal works across a port’s entire operations. Designed for mixed cargo, Master Terminal provides a single integrated, real-time view of all operations and data, resulting in improved productivity and operational efficiency.

Live demos on the booth further proved this critical functionality.
