Blockchain’s Potential Role in the Transportation Management Industry
The hype around blockchain is subsiding, and in its wake the transportation industry is taking a more serious look at how blockchain could be leveraged to improve operations.
In this interview at Talking Logistics, J.P. Wiggins discusses the positive impacts blockchain could have on visibility and efficiency – especially for mom-and-pop carriers. More than a half-million carriers have six trucks or less and don’t have modern ways of tracking freight with a TMS. Blockchain could address this huge gap by providing ways for small carriers to improve visibility and share data with transportation management systems and others.
Check out this engaging interview to learn more about blockchain’s possibilities for carriers, the biggest hurdles to making that a reality, and how this shift could positively impact the GDP of the entire United States.
