The pressure created by the coronavirus on global supply chain systems highlights an urgent need for rapid global cooperation to maintain and strengthen the resilience and transparency of highly-complex international supply chains. The relevance and impact of distributed ledger technology to provide solutions to such issues will become more relevant and evident. Remember, blockchain technology enables a ‘shared truth’ and ‘I see what you see’. While blockchain is not a silver bullet, this session will review the characteristics of blockchain technology which makes it a potential appropriate technology to address some supply chain issues.
