Maersk Logistics, TradeCard team up

Maersk Logistics USA Inc. and TradeCard, Inc., a financial supply-chain services company based in New York, have formed an alliance to deliver TradeCard's services to Maersk Logistics customers.

The two companies will integrate their respective service offerings to deliver the forwarders' electronic cargo receipts from Maersk Logistics' internal systems to the TradeCard Platform.

Wolverine World Wide, International Playthings, and Staples are some of the customers using both Maersk Logistics and TradeCard who could immediately benefit from this new arrangement.

Maersk Logistics will offer TradeCard's services as an extension of their supply chain offerings. TradeCard will strengthen the transaction side of the supply chain by electronically matching documents and facilitating payment, the company said.
