Feature Panel Discussion:
Blockchain - What It Means For Your Business
This new technology has already starting to enter the trucking industry and it will have a major impact on all aspects of your business in the near future.
What is blockchain in simple terms?
It’s the continuous update of digital records and who holds what. It’s information about transactions such as date, time and who is involved. This information is encrypted into a block that links to form a chain that cannot be broken. Blockchain will affect the way that we do contracts, move goods, make payments, track transactions and shipments and so much more.
This technology is not just for big companies, but all companies in all industries. Want a blockchain refresher? Download our conference presentation here.
