Blockchain will be used in the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Speed and efficiency will be increased with blockchain in logistics.
Blockchain offers new opportunities in logistics
Among the most efficient uses of blockchain technology is the logistics industry, along with the finance industry. The Netherlands is taking an important step for its use in blockchain logistics.
Within the scope of the pilot project to be launched in the Port of Rotterdam, logistics companies will be worked with. The aim of this pilot project will be to increase safety and efficiency for millions of containers in the port.
In the statement made by Secure Container Release, it was stated that a digital signal will be used in this pilot application instead of the PIN code system. Thus, it is stated that errors and delays will be avoided and manual operation will not be required. In addition, the fraud experienced in the PIN code system will be prevented, making the system more reliable.
The operators concerned will be able to make sure that the containers have been delivered to the right officer and will have a digital proof that the container has been delivered. Thanks to the token, which also includes confidentiality agreements, documents related to commercial relations are also secured.
After the shortcomings in the project, which is currently in the prototype stage, are eliminated, a new era in the logistics industry is expected to begin.
