Industry 4.0: Blockchains, Supply Chains and Logistics
Date & Time
Tuesday, 26 Feb
14:15 - 15:15
Hall 4 - Auditorium 3
Alongside increased levels of automation and autonomous decision-making within a company, the supply and delivery chain is also going through a parallel evolution. From source through processors, handlers and all the way to the end consumer, the way that goods are being ordered, distributed and monitored is going through an astonishing transition with ever-increasing levels of automation.
The challenge is to make sure that the right data is getting securely & reliably to participants at each step in the supply chain. This session examines the state of logistics and supply chain today, asking whether the flow of data is as capably managed as the flow of goods, and does distributed ledger technology offer a credible solution to the questions of data coordination and security?
