About the event:

Over a hundred years ago, supply chains were relatively simple because commerce was local. Managing today’s supply chains and all the links of creating and distributing goods is extraordinarily complex.

Depending on the product, the supply chain can span over hundreds of stages, multiple geographical (international) locations, a multitude of invoices and payments, have several individuals and entities involved, and extend over months of time. Due to the complexity and lack of transparency of our current supply chains, there is a strong interest in how blockchain technology is transforming the supply chain and logistics industry.

Blockchain can be applied to many challenges of the supply chain industry such as complicated record keeping and tracking of products as a less corruptible and better-automated alternative to centralized databases. The real-time tracking of a product in a supply chain with the help of blockchain reduces the overall cost of moving items in a supply chain. Payments can be processed by buyers and suppliers within the supply chain by leveraging blockchain rather than customers and suppliers relying on EDI.

On the evening of January 22nd leading supply chain experts and blockchain thought leaders will sit together to explore the ways in which blockchain can increase efficiency, transparency, reduce costs and share the ways the technology is currently implemented in the supply chain of various industries.
