Secure Container Release integration Port of Rotterdam since October 1st, 2022

Hapag-Lloyd is pleased to introduce T-Mining’s Secure Container Release in the Port of Rotterdam.
This is part of our continuous efforts to make the supply chain more secure.

Secure Container Release (SCR) is a platform developed by Information Technology company T-Mining. Commercial releases coming from the shipping line are distributed in a safe manner via blockchain and provided to the First Release Party (FRP). The FRP can re-transfer the release to the next party in the logistics chain. This can be another forwarder, but in most cases it will be the transport company.

During the phased rollout, containers are still to be picked-up with the traditional system of pincodes. In the near feature, trucking companies who receive release rights can generate a digital pick-up right once they assign the transport to a specific driver. A truck driver is assigned through his CargoCard ID, which is also used to access terminals in the Port of Rotterdam. Release rights for barge and rail pick-up will work based on company identification.
