Image of Nis Jespersen, Solutions Architect Transmute's work to date with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and steel importers sought to tackle pervasive trade barriers, including fragmented paper-based processes, non-standard data formats, unknown upstream actors, and siloed technical systems. In its next phase, Transmute will equip CBP and other partner government agencies with actionable data sooner about in-bound steel products and e-commerce shipments including standards-based “verifiable” trade data about businesses in the supply chain, product origins, and shipment documents.

Neoflow Demo Week Natural Gas and Crude Oil Border Clearance Mavennet is developing a platform called Neoflow to trace Canada to U.S. cross-border movements of oil and gas. Digital credentials created by Neoflow will allow the industry to securely exchange pre-arrival data and share the intent to transit or import oil and gas products in real time.




Enhancing Safety & Visibility in Food Supply Chains. Mesur.io.
