Complex supply chain and logistics tasks require a largely automatic and data-driven process across all suppliers. This requirement fits the features of the ubirch protocol which offers a distributed security infrastructure based on the level of single data points.
This also means that changing parties in the supply chain don’t have to be connected using the respective IT systems (VPN or similar). Integrity checks can be implemented on the level of ingoing and outgoing data more easily and quickly.
“Logistics and Supply Chain Management is getting more complex and will need a more data-driven approach in the future. The ubirch solution helps to secure IoT data from the source and stores it in a blockchain – a very promising solution to the problem as far as i can see.”
