Port Technology is pleased to announce that the newest edition of its e-Journal is now available and features key papers on one of the most exciting technologies to hit the industry for years: Blockchain.
Its potential for supply chain visibility and collaboration has meant some of the biggest carriers, operators and stakeholders now look to it as a way of increasing efficiency, cutting waste and more.
One of the most notable innovations has been TradeLens, the blockchain-based solution launched by Maersk, the biggest container shipping line in the world, and technological giants IBM, in August 2018, a milestone that Port Technology has covered in detail.
In this issue, our authors explore blockchain’s ability to cut waste, increase visibility and encourage collaboration among stakeholders throughout the supply chain.
The full list of papers in Edition 87 include:
- Port of Rotterdam’s Stepwise Approach and Blockchain’s Role
- Wolfgang Lehmacher – Blockchain in the Belt and Road – Connectivity 2.0 Between East and West
- World Economic Forum – Choosing a Fit-For-Purpose Blockchain Structure
- ShipChain – The Difference Between and Value of Public Versus Private Blockchain
- World Supply Chain Federation – Can Collaboration and Blockchain Serve as Catalysts For Supply Chain Innovation?
Blockchain was a big topic at Port Technology International’s Smart Digital Ports of the Future (#SDP19) Conference – as the SPSCT event is now known – from November 4-6, 2019, where blockchain and other smart technologies’ role in ports, at sea and in global supply chain will be explored.
