Mers: PCS and blockchain for value-added services in the hinterland

The Mers project consisted of experimenting with the use of blockchain technology to strengthen the logistics chain of the Mediterranean-Rhône-Saône port and logistics hub by integrating it into the Ci5 Port Community System. In partnership with KeeeX and Buyco, MGI has brought its expertise in connecting logistics players, and optimising and tracking goods flows through Ci5.


Discover Mers/Blockchain

MGI carried out developments to integrate Keeex's blockchain solutions to improve collaboration between pre/post-haulage players by structuring, optimising and securing their exchanges, with a particular focus on sustainable transport, especially rail and river transport. Thus it has been demonstrated through pilot operations that a blockchain approach, which complements Ci5's transactional or EDI offerings with a hybrid solution that organises exchanges and integrates them without intruding into the processes of future users, provides a solution to the operational and administrative problems encountered by the various players along the route.
