The group is projecting launch of the new platform in the second half of 2020 subject to regulatory approval.

«This effort is growing, and the reason is clear: were offering clear and tangible benefits for the industry, created by the industry,» the initiative participants said in a joint statement. «Customers, partners and other industry participants appreciate both the potential that our platform offers, and the fact that we are partnering with them early in the process to ensure the entire industrys needs are met.»

Since announcing the project in October 2018, the group has held workshops and roundtable discussions with a broad range of industry stakeholders, including shippers, charterers, buyers, service providers, financial institutions, trade associations, industry standards and regulatory authorities. By collaborating on critical issues such as security and data privacy, technology choices, business model, adoption strategy, and functionalities and capabilities, the group is ensuring that the new platform will meet the needs of the entire industry.
