Networking Luncheon

Afternoon Keynote: Keynote: Document Handling & Economic Inefficiencies: Free Up Working Capital & Optimize Your Value Chain

Inefficient document handling systems along the supply chain provide a toll on company profits. Maintaining bureaucratic paper trails required to manage modern supply chains are costly and inefficient. Established industry players and supply chain startups are beginning to utilize blockchain to optimize their value chains, improve inefficiencies and free up working capital, and make goods and services more accessible.

Blockchain Solutions, the Benefits of Eliminating Dependency & Vulnerability of Third-Party Providers

Case Study: Blockchain and Provenance of Goods and Services – Quelling the Demand For Transparency

When goods reach their final destinations, most buyers and sellers do not know the true origins of the manufactured products including the ingredients of the goods they have purchased. Transparent supply chain solutions have the potential to provide consumers and other downstream participants higher standards of responsibility and sustainability in sourcing and production: (a) transparency of environmental impact, such as or measuring diesel pollution of trucks at shipping ports, (b) food provenance: origins, production type and ingredients of the food we eat, conditions under which the plants are grown, animals treated.

Permission & Permissionless Blockchain Distributed Ledger and How It Affects Different Sectors

Case Study: Blockchain & the Agricultural Landscape – Preventing Environmental, Health, & Safety Problems

Countless people become ill due to contaminated food every year, leaving people wondering how food supply chains can be made safer. Enter blockchain, with this technology tracking a product from retail shelf back through every stage of the supply chain can only taker seconds instead of days or weeks. This is instrumental in tracking and tracing sources of food contamination.
