In spite of the overheatedly debated topic of cryptocurrencies, where, it seems, the main focus was put on the sharply rising or falling prices of Bitcoin and the likes, the underlying technology - blockchain - continues to attract attention, now also across the transport & logistics domain.

This way data integrity is preserved. In other words, all parties involved in the chain share the same view.
