Blockchain in Logistics: Game-Changer? The logistics industry is gigantic. It is tough to control the distribution of products. The supply chain runs through many diverse stages and geographical locations. The sector involves a lot of paperwork and invoices. Imagine that one piece of paper goes missing, and then delivery has a big issue. The problems in logistics – are similar to those in finance and the cryptocurrency industry. A lot of data is exchanged between people, so this data must be accessible to everyone and, at the same time, safe. There are many problems to be solved, e.g., the problem of controlling the origin of goods and elements (ingredients) of these products, the problem of counterfeit branded products, etc.
