Blockchain technology is a groundbreaking key technology that will significantly shape the future of business. Particularly in logistics and supply chain management, it is a driver for sustainable value creation and efficient processes. Blockchain technology is suitable for all areas where multiple actors interact and evidence of this interaction needs to be provided, such as proper transfer of goods. By securely storing data in the blockchain, companies can build and collectively optimize trusted and transparent value networks. The use of blockchain-based smart contracts, combined with cyber-physical systems and the Internet of Things, enables increasing automation and autonomization of value networks.
