Vinturas Finished Vehicle Supply Chain on Blockchain

Today’s automotive logistics infrastructure is characterized by scattered information flows and multiple legacy systems, making it impossible to trace vehicles on their way to the dealer. Mileage fraud is a growing concern in cross-border processes in Europe. Vinturas operates a digital, blockchain-based platform providing end-to-end visibility in the finished vehicle supply chain, from factory to dealer, leading to more transparency, to greater efficiency, to an improved customer journey and to lower costs.

A year ago we launched Trust Your Supplier, in partnership with IBM, and today the network is growing in profound ways and enabling businesses to make important on-boarding and sourcing decisions faster and more confidently than ever.

Data are the centerpiece of truly lean supply chains

Today’s global supply chains operate at incredible velocity and with ever-increasing complexity. Indeed, they represent some of the most advanced and complex operational systems on earth - though that complexity is filled with visible and invisible costs. Maersk has the ambition to be the world’s largest provider of integrated supply chain solutions. We work diligently with customers and partners to optimize and reduce costs by considering the entire context of their supply chains – driving efficiencies for all involved. Today, the opportunities to further improve efficiency, example reduce expense safety stock levels, lies in more efficient distribution of data. Our investment in blockchain and specifically TradeLens, is how we believe we can get there together.
