Maqta Gateway LLC, an Abu Dhabi Ports subsidiary, announced that it is to carry out its first testing of international blockchain solution Silsal with a maritime operator in partnership with MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company, a global leader in shipping and logistics.
The announcement marks the latest milestone for Silsal. The innovative solution provides a seamless and secure link between stakeholders across the trade community using the electronic ledger system. As a major carrier, MSC will provide vital information and feedback on the international pilot project, which will test the capabilities of the technology to exchange, identify, and ackn- owledge cargo documents and certificates between Abu Dhabi Ports and other ports.
Silsal was developed internally in the Digital Innovation Lab at Abu Dhabi Ports.
