Blockchain is a term that has become synonymous with several industries, and the supply chain management industry is one of them.
The development of blockchain technology is massive, and the World Economic Forum report suggests that by 2025 around 10% of total GDP will be stored on the blockchain.
One of the reasons for this immense growth is the superior functionality of blockchain and its simple implementation in various sectors. The existing freight industry functionalities are outdated and rigged with inefficiencies.
However, LaneAxis has developed a unique solution to these problems using blockchain technology and is already generating excellent results. Let’s take a quick look at how Blockchain can support optimal supply chain management for new world challenges.
Implementation of blockchain in supply chain
LaneAxis is proving that blockchain can revolutionize the supply chain industry by offering robust services. Some of the benefits of blockchain in the supply chain are:
- Improved Visibility
All transactions related to transferring goods are recorded on the blockchain, which cannot be edited and is publicly visible. The transaction will record all the parties involved, the state, price, and quality of the product along with the location and date of the transactions. This information will ensure data integrity and can be used for future purposes.
- Elimination of Errors and Faster Response
Blockchain operates in real-time, and the information is available to all parties at the same time. Shippers and drivers can then make informed decisions based on the information and minimize errors and offer quick responses
- An Updated Database
Blockchain can help in creating and managing a well-detailed database about shippers, drivers, truckers, and all the third parties involved in the supply chain. This database is extremely useful as it can help shippers and drivers choose only reliable assignments and avoid any complications.
The LaneAxis Network
LaneAxis is the world’s first broker less direct freight network in the US that connects shippers directly to the carriers eliminating the need for intermediaries. The company is powered by its patented software, blockchain technology, and artificial intelligence.
There is no shred of doubt that the existing freight network is unreliable and is in instant need of remodeling. LaneAxis has taken up this responsibility to optimize the supply management chain and give the power back to shippers and carriers.
