Sourcemap Partners with Blockchain the Supply Chain
‘Blockchain the Supply Chain’ the program set up by the European Supply Chain Institute to educate on and promote the applications of Blockchain in the Supply Chain welcomes Sourcemap and its CEO Leonardo Bonanni as a contributor to its Thought Leadership Board.
The mission of ‘Blockchain the Supply Chain’ is to identify the actual Blockchain applications that make sense for the extended supply chain with transparency a key focus.
Blockchain promises to deliver more transparency and proof of ownership throughout the supply chain when it integrates with the current systems in place.
However much of the Blockchain information available today is very generic and does not recognise the fact that different industries will approach and engage with the technology in different ways.
This is especially true of the supply chain where data governance and compliance issues are particularly important as organisations operate in diverse locations globally.
‘Blockchain the Supply Chain’ will address the information requirements of the supply chain both on the technology and its applications and how it can be deployed to enhance and future proof supply chain transparency.
“Without a doubt the emergence of Blockchain and its applications is very exciting and promises to transform the supply chain and how all trading partners collaborate globally. Due to the ongoing quest for supply chain visibility the supply chain is an ideal industry for Blockchain due to the need for true transparency and immutable proof of ownership of the products at each stage of distribution” states John Connors Director European Supply Chain Institute-Blockchain the Supply Chain.
We are delighted to announce Sourcemap and their CEO Leonardo Bonanni as a partner to the project.
“Consumers and companies are demanding more transparency from supply chains – the right to know where things come from – and that represents a fundamental shift in how business is done. Blockchain promises powerful solutions to promote collaboration and transparency across supply chains, especially when it comes to verifying that supply chains meet standards for quality, authenticity, and social and environmental compliance.” states Leonardo Bonanni CEO Sourcemap.
