Supply Chain

Blockchain for supply chain management: use cases and applications

Greater visibility into the origin and movement of goods and more accurate and timely supply chain data to address inefficiencies and risks in today’s global value chains. Without a way to synchronize information among multiple parties along the supply chain, each organization records its own version of the truth, leading to errors, high costs, and reputational and financial risks. What if buyers, suppliers, shippers, and other supply chain actors could transact in a trusted network that keeps everyone in sync, in real-time and in strict privacy?

What are the use cases of blockchain for supply chain? By leveraging blockchain in the supply chain, Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) applications enable global trading partners to transact securely and with consensus over shared facts to increase efficiency, transparency and visibility. Blockchain use cases for supply chain include immutability into the provenance of goods, the elimination of reconciliation pain across multiple parties and the real-time visibility to perform track and trace analysis, assess risks and accelerate physical and financial supply chains.
