Event Description


The logistics industry is huge, worldwide and critical to our global economy. The industry consists of transportation, warehousing, logistics and technology companies that move goods (physical assets) from producers to consumers.

The industry has grown rapidly in size and sophistication as supply chains became bigger and more demanding. Block chain is one of the technologies that may provide the next advancement in connectivity, speed, transparency, security, productivity and cost savings for the logistics industry.
