Youredi to offer data connectivity services between supply chain entities and the TradeLens platform

Building on the TradeLens network connectivity Youredi has provided since 2018, 3PLs, shippers and cargo owners can now use their software integration services to connect quickly and flexibly to the TradeLens platform. Anyone who needs to receive data on container movements from the TradeLens platform can benefit from the Youredi Integration service, an offering that integrates seamlessly and easily with a wide variety of TMS, ERPs and other supply chain and logistics applications, whether on-premise or cloud-based.

Permissioned data sharing across the maritime industry, improving the speed of data connectivity between different stakeholders, plus the need to digitalize and automate workflow processes has been a pain point for the industry for decades.

"Youredi wants to support BCOs, 3PLs, carriers, freight forwarders, ports and terminals, authorities, customs brokers, and any other stakeholders to connect with the TradeLens platform rapidly with a predictable cost, effort and time commitment. Connecting different stakeholders with the platform will create a more transparent container shipping industry in which all parties can collaborate and trust each other. In these times we all must contribute to make freight move more efficiently,” said Jaakko Elovaara, CEO of Youredi.

Youredi’s fully managed integration solutions have previously been used by various data contributors such as Patrick Terminals, MCP, the Port of Houston, Santos Brazil, Maersk L&S, and tens of APM Terminal facilities to connect with TradeLens.

For clients who are looking to connect to TradeLens but have limited in-house resources or know-how, now have the option to leverage a provider already experienced with TradeLens integrations.

The Youredi solution takes care of the data translation, so you can always send and receive data in your preferred data standard or format. The solution can work both with structured (rich data) and unstructured (PDFs, scans, images) data. Whenever required Youredi can also provide data validation and data enrichment logic.

"For our integration with the Maersk & IBM TradeLens system, we chose Youredi. Our decision was based not only on the company's extensive experience in TradeLens integrations but also on Youredi's working culture that implies fast and smooth project delivery. As a result, after just two weeks of implementation and tests, we were able to send the messages in scope to the TradeLens system without a need to write a single line of code on our part. We are very satisfied and happy with our choice and, of course, can recommend Youredi as a reliable partner that can quickly connect your IT systems to the TradeLens platform or any other third party," said Ricardo Abbruzzini, IT and Innovation Director, Santos Brazil.


"As the growth of the TradeLens ecosystem continues to accelerate, we will work closely with integration providers like Youredi to ensure an easy and flexible integration experience for both shippers and logistic suppliers. Youredi's experience with TradeLens helps our participants quickly realize the full value of the platform.” Juan-Jose Ruiz, Head of Strategy and Business Development, TradeLens, IBM.
