On October 11, e-ports, the world's leading intelligent ship service platform, announced that it had obtained a new round of strategic investment from Sumitomo Asia capital, and index capital continued to serve as the exclusive financial adviser. The financing funds will be mainly used for overseas port service layout and digital construction. In September this year, e-ports just completed the B1 round of financing led by Jinshajiang joint capital, and won the favor of strategic capital again after only one month. The B1 and B2 rounds of financing totaled more than 100 million yuan. The great potential of e-ports in the field of international shipping logistics has been fully recognized. At present, with the deepening of global economic integration, the total amount of international trade remains high, and its growth rate has far exceeded the total amount of the world economy. International trade is an important part of the world economy, and international shipping is closely related to the world economy and international trade. The shipping industry, which carries 90% of the world trade volume, plays an important role in driving economic globalization. According to Clarkson's statistics, in terms of weight, the global trade volume in 2020 will be 13 billion tons, of which maritime trade accounts for 89% and 11.5 billion tons. Huang Qizhou, founder of e-ports, said that e-ports will continue to be committed to continuously studying and enabling global shipping services, promote the iterative updating of the industry in production, service, analysis and information exchange by means of informatization, and strive to build an efficient "digital" international shipping logistics service platform.
