Blockchain in der Logistik – Kommt die Revolution? (Pro und Contra)

If you believe the speakers at this year's Logistics Congress of the BVL then the logistics industry is already in the digital paradise

That is not the case, you see when you look in practice 60 percent of invoices are sent in paper form through the world This is not only expensive and time-consuming but also prone to counterfeiting The business models of many carriers still rely on analog lack of transparency to focus on digital progress instead We at PFG many customers have currently dealing with the issue of block chain Which themselves use and experiment That's why we thought we'd ask the question: "Can block Chain guide the logistics industry in the digital stone age? Or not?" The revolt of the consumer in the long term transport the block chain in the logistics industry

We see more and more that people attach importance to emphasize that within the supply chain is sustainable mismanaged, but also people are not exploited Secondly, the issue of health and food safety is an important factor The fipronil scandal was problematic for many consumers, and the pressure on companies increases The problem with the status quo: companies often do not know which sources have their suppliers and where they source their products The suppliers put often worth it, that it is not transparent so that prices can be kept as high as possible A solution might be smart Contracts based on block chains As I detail in "blocks" documenting WHERE, WHEN WHAT comes from

That means I can always prove my end customers that everything is set up on a clean supply chain In contrast, of course, is speaking the current working practices in the logistics sector Many suppliers have business models that are based on that they are transparent We do not know exactly where they relate the goods Good for suppliers: These can then turn up the price because they can always say: "It cost a bit more, took a bit longer" Block chain would make the radically transparent The greatest problem with the status quo that many processes occur still analog in the logistics industry Block Chain is a technology based on digitization to setup can only block Chains apply

if the processes are displayed digitally This is a problem that has to be made up On the other hand, it is of course a major cost item for companies

You can save lots of money by employing block chain Firstly intermediaries can be easily edited, which of course looking for intermediaries not good, but for everyone else, as the price then falls On the other hand costs can be saved by the data center will not be centralized are managed, which of course saves a lot of money in staff and equipment

Data will be stored locally in the future of the block chain I think we should not forget: One can by connecting block chain with IOT, reduce delays, by analyzing where the goods are just who they just

All this is also about smart Contracts and the block chain technology What we must not forget, and that's final contra-argument: Especially for many producers there are entry barriers If we look at ourselves, the logistics industry, we see that many products are sourced from Third World countries and emerging markets While it is easy when you upload photos of products and production facilities in the block chain, So in a block which is then transmitted further Nevertheless missing in these countries are often the basic understanding of how digital processes work And often lack infrastructure such as Internet connection or simply the knowledge

how to use the technology properly Knowledge is unfortunately often absent In my estimation block chain is therefore particularly the industrialized nations employ in the coming years, are where digitized, they can also use the technology If you want to join in the discussion and you still interested, then comes Just to our Webinar on 11/20/17 once at 1100 and 1400 We listen to the experts Mr Soysal on block chain

He knows a good and you can ask him your questions Thank you very much for your attention Until next time!
