From Todd Dills, Overdrive:
As software programs and online interfaces have proliferated in trucking, so have communication problems. Getting the software of an individual transportation management software (TMS) system to integrate with a load board could require complicated development work by the TMS provider, the carrier using the TMS and the load board itself.
Blockchain systems could form a backbone for a lot of what happens in the supply chain, says Chris Burruss, president of the Blockchain in Transport Alliance. He believes standardizing systems now will grease the skids for companies being able to benefit from future technology.
