An unsolved problem in the fields of transport, logistics and especially in the forwarding business is the forgery-proof information transfer between the participants of the logistics chain. Transport accompanying documents, bills of lading and customs documents are nowadays exchanged via e-mail and cloud services as well as freight exchanges in addition to the classic paper form.
The goal of the project, which is funded by the BMWI, is to make logistics chains more transparent and automated by using block chain and distributed ledger technologies (DLT), while at the same time reducing the number of media breaks. This innovation ensures freedom from manipulation and trustworthiness of information.
The HANSEBLOC project will be completed by the end of 2020 and will have achieved results that are useful for the participants. CHAINSTEP has provided the project with the know-how build-up with regard to block chain and supported the development of the business models and block chain integration.
