Event Description

Learn How Blockchain Will Transform the Supply Chain and Logistics Industry

The supply chains that power our economy and provide everything from lattes to Land Rovers are dependent on the logistics industry. The logistics industry consists of a worldwide network of companies that provide transportation, warehousing, logistics, 3PL (Third Party Logistics) services, and technology. The supply chains that produce the goods, and the logistics companies that move the goods to market, are increasingly connected via web-based systems such as ERP, TMS, WMS, etc. While these systems have greatly improved in terms of efficiency and effectiveness, there is still a lot of scope for improvement.   

Blockchain is one of the technologies that many experts think will lead to the next increase in logistics and supply chain connectivity, transparency and productivity. Find out how in this webinar with blockchain and logistics expert Joe Lynch . Lynch will show you how blockchain and distributed ledger technology present a great opportunity to connect the industry, reduce friction and the cost of doing business. There are countless areas where blockchain technology can drive improvement in the logistics industry, but transportation of goods is the biggest of them of all, so Lynch will use that (especially "truck-driver shortage") for illustration purposes, and show you how blockchain technology can bring about a marked improvement.

Shippers are finding it difficult to find carriers and drivers to transport their freight. According to American trucking association, 90% of America’s 1.5 million trucking companies have six trucks or fewer. And despite all the advancements that have connected shippers, 3PLs, brokers, carriers and drivers, it is still a big, relatively, disconnected industry. But blockchain and distributed ledger technology can play a game-changing role, as you will learn.

You will also learn how blockchain can connect shippers, 3PLs, and carriers in a way that maximizes efficiency. This webinar will also showcase how blockchain can enable shippers to have a more reliable network of carriers/drivers, and how carriers can benefit from greater utilization of assets (full trucks, backhauls, etc.), thereby leading to increased transparency, security, efficiency, traceability, speed, and cost effectiveness.
