Global seafreight forwarding market: Introduction of blockchain in the shipping industry
The blockchain system makes use of a chain of cryptographically protected records to expose the details of transactions to all entities and distribute records across the network of contributing nodes or computer systems. This eliminates the need for a central authority to maintain records, which makes the processes more efficient and helps in reducing the costs.
“The blockchain technology is still in a nascent stage in maritime transportation. The shipping lines have been constantly implementing blockchain technology to streamline their shipping operations. The popularity of the blockchain technology in the shipping industry has been increasing steadily,” says a senior research analyst at Technavio.
