The sanctions landscape, inherently guided by the state of global affairs, has never been more complex and rapidly evolving. With regulators now focusing on the entire maritime trade supply chain, ensuring that proper due diligence and risk management processes are in place has never been more important.
Regulatory risk can be associated with all aspects of a trade transaction: the goods being traded, the origin of the goods, the buyers and sellers, the cities and ports along the shipping route, and the shipping vessels themselves.
Designed with and for companies with regulatory exposures in maritime trade and shipping, PurpleTRAC enables the automation, streamlining, and recording of your regulatory processes and mitigates the risk of money laundering and terrorist financing, alongside the criminal, reputational, and commercial damage that would occur as a result of noncompliance.
PurpleTRAC is used by major international trade financing banks, trading companies, governments and flag administrations, maritime insurers, ship financing and leasing companies, and other members of the supply chain to demonstrate best efforts in compliance, all within an easy-to-use, web-based solution with API and DLT node application availability.
As a single service solution, incorporating best in class data and sanctions watch-lists, PurpleTRAC is a new advanced method of dealing with regulatory risk and sanctions in the maritime transportation sectors. Users are able to configure their own unique risk parameters to generate accurate results in seconds, saving time and money, while producing that all-important audit trail. And now, with the new Bill of Lading Verification module, PurpleTRAC customers can significantly extend their sanctions risk and compliance investigations.

Our Bill of Lading Verification (BLV) module allows PurpleTRAC customers to significantly extend their sanctions risk and compliance investigations.
By simply entering the bill of lading number of a container shipment, PurpleTRAC will confirm whether this is a recognised asset within the database of carriers currently supported and then provide a list of all the vessels involved in the delivery of this BL, all ports visited, and all carriers involved in the transaction.
At this point, the relevant vessels will pass through PurpleTRAC’s unique vessel screening capability to ensure they meet their specific sanctions compliance requirements.
All BL searches will be recorded and saved to allow our users to trace and prove their due diligence steps.

We have been using PurpleTRAC since August 2019. It is easy to use and we are able to use the generated report as a record of the checks done. PurpleTRAC has reduced the need to do separate checks for most cases by consolidating the information and Dow Jones checks in one place.
