Vancouver, B.C., May 17, 2022. MineHub Technologies Inc. (TSXV: MHUB, OTCQB: MHUBF) (“MineHub” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it now supports the full seaborne market by enabling container-based transactions and shipments on its blockchain-based platform for supply chains.
By using the MineHub solution, users get real-time visibility of the location of their container shipments and other data points like shipment status and crucially, estimated time of arrival. This capability transforms customer experience, frees up time in operations, increases supply chain resilience and enhances risk control for financiers and insurers.
Arnoud Star Busmann, CEO at MineHub said: “80% of the world’s goods are transported via oceans. Being able to support container-based transactions unlocks a much bigger market, as many of the world’s commodities and products are shipped in containers. It also demonstrates the flexibility of the MineHub platform as well as its speed to market, having developed this capability within two months and tested it live with several industry leaders.”
The initial release of the MineHub platform focused on raw materials like iron ore and metal concentrates that are shipped from the mines to smelters in bulk vessels. The evolution to add and support container-based shipments follows the growth of MineHub’s user-base to include downstream producers and consumers of metals in major industrial categories like copper cathodes.

- Real-time visibility of location and ETA remove manual processes and work from operations teams
