Able Freight Services, a cold chain logistics provider, has announced its entry into the Blockchain in Transport Alliance (BiTA), which also includes companies such as Descartes, Daimler, FedEx, SAP and Uber Freight.

Able Freight currently operates its own customer portal ‘DataHub’, which offers real-time shipment tracking, access to all shipment documents from shipper to consignee, and instant data visibility about the condition of cargo.

With interest in blockchain-based solutions growing, BiTA is an organization dedicated to determining best practices and standards for blockchain in the transportation industry.

For transporters, blockchain allows goods to be tracked more effectively and securely across the supply chain.

Darko Djuric discusses how blockchain might be used to secure the cyber environment in a recent Port Technology technical paper

There are also benefits for customers, as blockchain can help to complete transactions, track shipments and manage fleets.

Chris Burruss, President of BiTA, said: “Blockchain technology will transform the supply chain by introducing greater transparency, innovation, and efficiency.

“We are very fortunate to have specialist member companies like Able Freight Services, who offers very detailed know-how and expertise in freight forwarding for very sensitive cargo, which needs exact temperature and ambient controls as well as tailor-made solutions and 24/7 care for its handling along the global supply chain.

“Able Freight Services will be a key player in helping us develop blockchain standards in perishables forwarding as well as to deploy the technologies in value-adding use cases.”
