Challenges of modern logistics

As digital technology revolutionizes industry through advances like IoT, VR, AR, AI, machine learning, robotics and more, the logistics industry remains largely outdated and inefficient, missing out on improvements to methodology and operations.

The main challenges that the global logistics industry faces today include:

  • Low data transparency
  • Exorbitant operating expenses
  • Untraceable delivery
  • Data vulnerability
  • Lack of trust between parties
  • Overcomplicated processes
  • Inaccurate data
  • Too many intermediaries

How we change the game with blockchain for logistics

Improving processes for logistics companies through blockchain development

The OpenLedger team is proficient at implementing blockchain solutions into various areas of the logistics industry. Typical blockchain logistics use cases include:

Transparent data

The data recorded in the distributed ledger is completely transparent. Every party concerned has access to review it, increasing trust between senders, receivers, shippers and regulating bodies.

Process automation

Once set conditions are met, there is no need for manual actions: a smart contract will automatically initiate commercial processes. By automating departure, shipment, ownership changes and other procedures, you cut expenses and simplify the entire flow.

Robust security

Records stored on a blockchain are safe from forgery, accidental loss, and unauthorized access. Decentralized data storage is secure, transparent, and easily accessible by authorized parties.

Detailed traceability

Blockchain lets you track every movement a shipped item makes: each stop, detour and manipulation is visible. This information is protected from accidental or intentional changes.

Authenticity control

Data transparency combined with detailed traceability and robust security allows your end consumers to easily make sure that the delivered goods meet specifications, such as country of origin, legitimacy, transportation conditions and more.

Collaboration on the fly

The accessibility provided by a blockchain-based system enables seamless collaboration between parties. A powerful set of workflow tools, such as electronic signatures and contact verification, is available.
