An Exciting New Era for TradeCert

We’re delighted to inform you of our company’s acquisition by essDOCS (, the leading enabler of paperless trade. This acquisition will provide you, our valued Customers and Partners, with an even greater level of service and support through the merging of resources and vast combined expertise.

The synergy and combination of our competencies yields the strongest, most expansive electronic Certificate of Origin (eCO) network of its kind: serving 28,000+ Exporters and Freight Forwarders applying for and receiving Certificates from 200+ Chambers of Commerce across 10 export countries, and used for imports into 168 countries. Through continued partnerships and organic growth, we are on track to offer eCOs in 14 countries by year’s end, while we anticipate reaching 25 countries by end 2018!

Our Team in Galway, Ireland, will now act as essDOCS’ Center of Excellence for eCOs via a newly-established Certification arm – essDOCS Certification – headed by TradeCert co-founder, Brian Smith, and supported by essDOCS Group personnel in the US, UK, Greece, Singapore and Australia.

essDOCS Certification will develop a best-of-breed electronic Certificate of Origin (eCO) platform by combining essDOCS Solutions with TradeCert, while investing heavily in new technologies to enable mobile and distributed ledger options to customers.
