Create a platform for exchanging information on AEO
The solution should adopt the WCO data model. Furthermore, it should be fully distributed so that the service is not hosted in just one country.
AEO data exchange
The bConnect project consists of a permissioned blockchain implementation (Hyperledger fabric) that allows any type of data to be exchanged between participating countries. It is a Mercosur project, but it allows both the exchange of data between all countries and the bilateral exchange between some of them, and also the exchange of data with other countries that may adopt this tool.
At the beginning of the project, there was a great lack of professionals qualified to implement Blockchain projects. In addition, the specific characteristics of this technology required some adjustments between the countries involved.
The use of blockchain allowed us to have a data exchange tool that, unlike the models we used until then, does not require the figure of a central server and also facilitates the management of data security and auditing.
We are studying other data exchange cases for use with this tool. We are currently finalizing the data exchange of some auxiliary tables of the international land traffic control system. Furthermore, the issue of interoperability between established blockchains on different platforms is also on our radar.
