IoT and Blockchain Applications in Logistics and Transportation


Logistics/supply is currently one of the largest industries in the world. The constant demand for logistics in every sector and the increasing distribution and division of labor and goods across the world has turned logistics into an essential component of modern human life. This sprawling and interconnected system of businesses, trade routes, shipping manifests and legal red tape is made possible by a complex, multilayering of computer technology and old-fashioned paperwork. It's an industry that's often shrouded in unknowns and gaps, and sometimes even distrust, with transparency being at a premium for everyone involved. Few companies involved in the logistics and supply process are willing to share contract details, information about money or data on sales and supplies.
