Challenges faced by the logistics industry
Slow and costly payments
Transnational payments are fraught with delays and high fees. Where multiple parties are involved, payments become intractably complex.
Maersk and IBM state that transportation management can account for up to 20% of total costs because of unwieldy legacy systems.
According to FreightWaves, sensitive loads can be damaged by environmental fluctuation, which ruins 8.5% of pharmaceuticals in transit.
Most trucking firms have 6 trucks or even fewer (as per ATA). In the US, truckers drive 29bn miles a year with totally or partially empty trucks.
Supply chain complexity
Maersk reports that an intercontinental refrigerated shipment typically passes through 30+ organizations and requires 200+ communications.
Long dispute resolution
TransRisk states that every day, $140bn is tied up in disputed payments, with an average wait time for resolution of 42 days.

Blockchain applications in logistics
Use case 1. Transportation transparency
Transportation flows remain mostly shady procedures, with opaque, and thus hardly traceable records accompanying every step of product logistics.
An immutable, tamper-proof blockchain system establishes complete data transparency, with every data asset visible and self-maintainable across the entire transportation flow.
Use case 2. Automated deals
Contractual relations between manufacturers and suppliers involve third parties that only add costs, friction, and delays to settlements.
Thanks to blockchain-enabled smart contracts, agreements become autonomous and self-executing once the agreement terms are met.
Use case 3. Consistent data validation
Current enterprise systems fail to provide complete authenticity of logistics data, often leaving recorded assets vulnerable to manipulation.
With blockchain, the entire network can validate data through consensus, thus, minimizing fraud risks within the system.
