Maritime Shipping

Trade Without Barriers

Maritime shipping is considered the most integral leg of the supply chain.
Today, 90 percent of goods are transported by ships; therefore, impediments to ocean carriers’ workflows will have rippling effects felt across the trade landscape: delayed cargo, shortages in essential goods, higher trade costs, and, over time, slower economic growth.

The struggle with reliance on paper-based transactions leads to challenges with efficiency and is at the heart of what is at risk.

WAVE BL optimizes the flow of cargo by eliminating reliance on paper-based documents with a blockchain-backed digital platform that takes the place of paper in exchange for a more secure, automated solution, where carriers can issue, possess, transmit and sign digital documents within minutes.

Eliminate risks, cut costs and ineffective workflows

  • Authentication and Trust Forged and fraudulent documents are estimated to cost the maritime shipping industry billions in annual losses. Automatic verification and authentication are built into WAVE BL, resulting in documents you can trust.

  • Streamlined Costs Paper, printing, couriering, storage and manual verification directly add to the cost of every shipment. WAVE BL lets companies slash these overhead costs.

  • Unified Communications Supply chain members today use multiple, often unconnected protocols. WAVE BL enables members to communicate efficiently on a single network.

  • Unified Documentation No need for multiple apps. Seamlessly manage, track, issue, transfer and endorse critical trade documents on one single platform.

WAVE BL aligns perfectly with our innovation initiatives thanks to its novel design and deployment. Since completing the integration of WAVE BL with our legacy systems, we’ve diminished document transfer times from days to seconds and rapidly reduced our antiquated paper costs. Moreover, we’ve passed along the benefits both internally in terms of decreased expenditures and externally to customers via better communication and accountability.
