At the time of its inception some two centuries ago, the supply chain was a revolutionary idea that would improve visibility and control on goods and products as they moved from point A to point B. But the old concept and technology can no longer support today’s production and supply cycles, which have become extremely fragmented, complicated and geographically dispersed.

In effect, the supply chain is now an opaque and faulty process that is extremely hard to manage.

Hopefully, the supply chain problem can be remedied with blockchain, the emerging technology that has proven its value in bringing transparency and efficiency to a number of different industries.

Topics to be covered:

  • What is the blockchain
  • What are the capabilities of blockchain
  • Why supplychain
  • What are the pros and cons of blockchain applications
  • What is next?
