On September 6, e-ports, an Internet platform for the shipping industry, announced the completion of a B1 round of financing of tens of millions of yuan. This round of financing was led by Jinshajiang joint capital and index capital served as the exclusive financial adviser. The financing funds will be mainly used for system R & D, team building and market development. Previously, e-ports obtained strategic investment from China Merchants venture capital and Huagai capital. E-ports began its internal incubation in 2015. With the mission of "one click access to world-class shipping services", e-ports is committed to providing world-class online and offline shipping services for global ships and port service solutions for global merchant ships. In the context of digital upgrading, the disordered and chaotic service system of the shipping agency industry in the past is moving towards full competition. The service platform built by e-ports through standardized processes is like the "router" of international trade activities, which is realizing the standardization, real-time, visualization and credibility of shipping agency services. Jiao Mengjin, vice president of Jinshajiang United capital, said that shipping is a large-scale but easily overlooked industry. It is everywhere but elusive. Since the great navigation era in the 15th century, the competition and confrontation around shipping lines have shaped the political and economic pattern of today's world to a considerable extent. As the global economic center returns to the Pacific and Indian Ocean regions again, there may also be opportunities for systematic innovation in the shipping industry. The impact of the epidemic on the global production and consumption pattern makes people see this possibility in advance.
