Imagine a marketplace where the most critical information you needed to operate your company successfully was easily-accessible, secure, accurate, and validated—how much more efficiently and cost effectively you could run your business. It seems blockchain technology has the potential to create such an environment. This webinar will talk about this hot new technology, and what it is and is not. We will explore its potential application in trucking to examine its use in freight tracking, HOS, proof-of-delivery, and more.

Blockchain will have a major impact on all players in the supply chain: brokers, shippers and carriers.  You will discover what should be considered to prepare your company and operational practices for what could be the most revolutionizing advent in trucking since ELDs.
