IPCSA Launches the Network of Trusted Networks

Breaking through barriers in the supply chain – Connecting Port Community Systems and Single Windows around the world

The International Port Community Systems Association (IPCSA) launches the Network of Trusted Networks (NoTN) a new, secure port-to-port and cross-border data exchange solution.

An innovative new concept for enabling port-to-port and cross-border exchange of data is being trialled by the International Port Community Systems Association (IPCSA) – in a two-year project covering up to 70 ports, ten airports and multiple inland terminals.

  • The purpose – to provide predictability, visibility and certainty within the supply chain.
  • The priority – to respond to the requirement of consumers and logistics companies for real-time, end-to-end information on their shipments.
  • The unique advantage – a trusted and neutral solution.

When it comes to providing this kind of cross-border solution, others have tried to deliver such a concept – but the key stumbling block is always ‘trust’. Where others are aiming to get direct users on board, IPCSA’s Network of Trusted Networks (NoTN) takes a different approach. NoTN users will be trusted, neutral platforms such as Port Community Systems, Cargo Community Systems and Single Window operators.
