Container shipping companies are free to connect directly to Certified Pick up or connect to Certified Pick up through the third-party application. However, the full audit trail and generation of the final digital key will only be provided by the Certified Pick up application. The audit trail must be delivered to Certified Pick up by the third party application and the final digital key must be requested from Certified Pick up by the users of the third party application. As such, the third-party application will always need to link to Certified Pick up to ensure the audit trail that Certified Pick up performs.
The use of a third-party application must not affect the security of Certified Pick Up and of the Certified Pick Up application, nor the generation of the final digital key and audit trail by the authorised service provider.
The use of a third-party application must never detract from the obligations of the parties concerned, who must ensure that all necessary actions are carried out and that they communicate all data within the scope of Certified Pick Up while taking account of their respective capacity and role.
To our knowledge, there is one party that can provide a third-party application that has a connection to Certified Pick up, namely Secure Container Release from T-Mining.
