CargoSmart, Cosco and Tesla in blockchain trial

first_imgThe use of blockchain in the shipping industry is expected to bring numerous benefits as it cuts the red tape and bolsters the efficiency of the supply chain. The GSBN has attracted the interest of liner majors such as CMA CGM, COSCO, Hapag-Lloyd and OOCL as well as, COSCO SHIPPING Ports, Hutchison Ports, Port of Qingdao, PSA International, and SIPG. “The pilot is a key component of our journey towards paperless, trusted, and seamless trade processes at the Port of Shanghai, and it demonstrates the benefits for supply chain stakeholders around the world,” Henry Huang, Executive DGM of Operation & Business Department of SIPG, said. Tech firm CargoSmart Limited has carried out a pilot project with ocean carrier COSCO Shipping Lines using blockchain to share shipment data with a terminal operator in real-time. The goal of the pilot was to minimize consignee and shipping agent verification steps with their ocean carriers in order to speed up the release of sea waybills. Once the GSBN is formally established, CargoSmart plans to conduct similar pilots with Xiamen Ocean Gate Container Terminal (XOCT) and other terminal operators such as those at the Port of Qingdao in China and the Port of Laem Chabang in Thailand.   As a result, truckers are able to pick up their cargo at the terminal faster, helping shippers meet delivery windows. The project is part of the Global Shipping Business Network (GSBN) blockchain consortium, which is pending regulatory approval. The objective is to broaden the scope of the pilot by involving more carriers and terminals, and eventually extending the pilot to other industry participants in the near future. As part of the process, COSCO and SIPG streamlined the cargo release process by enabling Tesla to accelerate its cargo pick up procedures. The network aims to provide a platform for the shipping supply chain participants to work collaboratively on accelerating the digital transformation of the shipping industry. The pilot also allowed SIPG to view a single, trusted source of COSCO’s sea waybill data, enabling faster preparation of delivery orders for consignees and their shipping agents. Apart from COSCO, Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG), and Tesla (Tesla) took part in the project which took place in December 2019. CargoSmart said that it has managed to further enhance the application to display laden gate out, appointment date, and terminal release. “The pilot with SIPG and CargoSmart showcased significant efficiency gains not only in the cargo release process, but also for downstream supply chain planning by presenting a single source of truth for documentation for all involved parties,” Wu Yu, General Manager of Business Process & System Division of COSCO said.last_img read more

Angels monitoring Cam Bedrosian’s drop in velocity

first_img“I think over the past year I may have gotten into some bad habits, with the strain and everything,” he said. “It takes a while to get out of them, unfortunately. I’m out there every day working on stuff.”Bedrosian has allowed four runs on eight hits in 4-2/3 innings through his first six games of the season.“Everything is a concern,” pitching coach Charlie Nagy said of the drop in velocity. “It’s something we’re keeping an eye on and talking to him about some things.”Bedrosian also said that the velocity drop is not solely the reason he’s struggling.“I have to make better pitches, whether I have the velocity or not,” he said. “The last couple outings there have been a couple pitches that I left up and they hurt me. I have to make better pitches.” Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error ARLINGTON, Texas — Cam Bedrosian knows something is wrong.A day after Bedrosian gave up a homer in a mop-up inning, he conceded that his decreased velocity has been an issue, although he doesn’t believe he’s hurt.“I feel fine physically,” Bedrosian said Tuesday. “My velocity is still not exactly where I want it to be. I think it may be mechanical. We’re working on a couple things right now.”Bedrosian has averaged 93 mph with his fastball so far this year. In 2016, before a series of injuries, he averaged 96 mph. Last April, he still averaged 96 mph. He went on the disabled list with a groin injury, and when he came back he was throwing 93-94 the rest of the season. That drop, Bedrosian said, was related to a lack of lower body strength from the groin injury.
