The current global supply chain is complex, opaque, slow, and inefficient. Of concern is that the supply chain is subject to high levels of fraud and regularly incurs significant losses. However, the emerging technology, blockchain, holds great transformative potential and provides the digitization opportunity for supply chain stakeholders to create agile and lean supply chains that can be more resilient, flexible, integrated, adaptive and sustainable.
This webinar looks at the key benefits of blockchain in transportation, including enhanced transparency, greater scalability and reduced risks.
