The introduction of blockchain technology as a platform for enabling safe, accurate sharing and verification across entire supply chains is rapidly approaching, according to attendees at Home Delivery World in Atlanta.
The challenge, according to Paul Chang, IBM’s global blockchain industry lead for logistics and industrial markets, is that supply chains can include three, five, ten, or more separate partners, each managing their own business process.
“Using EDI communication, you can try to reconcile data over the air, but what if there’s a disagreement among partners? Who has the most up-to-date information?” Chang enquired. “With blockchain, everybody has a distributed version, a common single source of fact. Smart contracts are more stable, irreversible, and automated.”
“If you have a business intent around confidence, with all the layers of the supply chain, the risk of not having the right information or product is growing downstream,” said Bob Wolpert, president of Golden State Foods’ quality custom distribution. “Blockchain transaction technology enables any segment of the supply chain to be permanent, connect data, certify, and conduct quality assurance.”

It’s the best and most powerful email search engine I’ve used so far, and I’ve tried a lot. It outperforms others in terms of both the breadth of the searches and the number of correct emails found. I also like the style, which is pleasing to the eye, appealing, and effective. In the end, as a non-profit reaching out to leadership, it has proven to be an important tool.
Smarter food supply
The food and beverage industry’s supply chains have received a lot of coverage in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The industry’s ability to supply supermarkets and restaurants was put under strain when meat packaging plants closed. Ingredients were scarce, so manufacturers struggled to find new sources. Faced with these and other problems, the industry has turned to technology, such as blockchain, to gain a better understanding of supply chains and obtain data in seconds.
The pandemic may have accelerated the industry’s ability to track and control supply chains more effectively. Some businesses are also touting their latest tech prowess on product packaging, exposing origins and the path their products take from manufacturing to shelf. They aren’t keeping the supply chain a secret; they want customers to be aware of it as well.
Consumers will learn about the supply chain for J.M. Smucker’s 1850 100% single origin Colombian Coffee brand by scanning QR codes on the packaging. It’s about accountability for both the manufacturer and the consumer.
Paul W. Chang, Global Business Strategy Lead, Emerging Technologies for IBM Software Group, has joined Sproxil’s Board of Advisors. Sproxil is a U.S.-based company that offers world-class brand security in emerging markets through software and services that operate wherever there are mobile phones. Chang, who has more than 20 years of experience in RFID, biotech, and optical network technology, recently appeared in a series of IBM advertisements encouraging the use of drug serialization to fight counterfeiting.
Sproxil’s Mobile Product AuthenticationTM (MPATM) solution uses a mobile phone and a simple, free text message to allow customers to verify that the product they’re purchasing is genuine. The company uses a scratch card system similar to that used to replenish cellular talk-time to enable users to disclose a one-time-use code on drugs and text the code to a “911 for fake drugs” number that is equivalent across all cellular networks in a region. The solution has proven to be the safest and most dependable on the market. MPA is used by both local and multinational pharmaceutical firms, such as GSK and Johnson & Johnson, to satisfy their brand security needs.
