Blockchain in the supply chain – disruptor or the new norm?

The distributed ledger technology is here to stay, but what does that mean for an industry which often still relies on inefficient systems from faxes to spreadsheets and EDI?

Cost savings, workflow efficiencies and supply chain and food safety verification are just some of the promised benefits, but this new technology is not without its challenges. And with so few off the shelf systems available to small and mid-sized companies, how do we leverage the power of blockchain?

Harnessing disruptive power – embracing innovation to meet the evolving needs of the customer

The disruptors are forcing change in a logistics industry under pressure to deliver a better service at a lower cost. New technology and new, more collaborative business models, are evolving to meet new customer expectations and new entrants are exploiting digital technology to add value to the supply chain. This seismic change brings risk and opportunity – the race is on to reshape the logistics industry.

Roadmap to a world without food loss – how can cool chain partners collaborate to curb the waste?

Approximately one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year, 1.3 billion tonnes, gets lost or wasted, that’s roughly USD 680 billion in industrialized countries and USD 310 billion in developing countries. It’s time for transparency and data sharing in the cool chain as well as training for perishables growers and better facilities.
