Is blockchain technology a game-changer for global logistics?

Supply chain management has never been simple. As most business owners who deal with logistics know, the more links there are in the chain the more complex it gets. This hasn’t been helped by the industry’s reliance on outdated technology, such as EDI, which has inhibited information flows by only allowing the point-to-point exchange of information.

Information is the key, not equipment

When you think of e-commerce, Amazon stands out as one of the global giants. As part of their supply chain strategy, and a way of reducing their freight costs, they’ve purchased their own planes, ships and vehicles. But that’s not where the real gains are being made; they’re constantly analysing their massive amounts of data to find ways to improve their delivery model, and their supply chain solutions.

Why equipment is no longer the most powerful competitive weapon in the logistics supply chain

Global logistics is a battle, possibly the biggest and bloodiest in world commerce. The Economist reports that between 1985 and 2007, trade volumes increased at twice the rate of the global GDP.
