An unbroken chain of trust

The modern supply chain is long on data and short on trust. Historically, mistrust between organizations, including fear that information might be passed on to a competitor has stopped organizations from sharing data. In turn, even when information is shared, it’s often not fully trusted. Blockchains – distributed ledgers that create a permanent and shared record of every transaction associated with an asset – create an unbroken chain of trust. Each record is time-stamped and appended to the event before it. Blockchains have the potential to generate breakthroughs in three areas: visibility, optimization and demand.
