Make no mistake: Blockchain isn’t Bitcoin buzz. After all, it’s predicted to store 10% of the global GDP by 2025. Blockchain technology is a new architecture to exchange, secure and integrate data and business processes - which means greater operational efficiency, better visibility and getting paid faster. Additionally, successful implementation of Blockchain can give transportation companies a distinct competitive advantage.
