Blockchain the Holy Grail for logistics?


Blockchain is getting a lot of attention. Is it a buzzword, a hype or does it really bring benefits to the logistical world and beyond? Four members of The Beacon share their views.

Blockchain in logistics could provide benefits like cost reduction and reducing record-keeping & inventory tracking. The elimination of intermediaries by automating the supply chain, and the implementation of IoT could fuel growth opportunities for blockchain in logistics.
