Unified solution for asset tracking.
The dream for supply chain: a single platform from shipment to delivery.
Transparency through immutability.
Crowd-validated, trustless & tamper-proof data storage via the Open Ethereum blockchain.
Ownership of business data/intelligence.
Thanks to secure ShipChain Vaults, business owners have complete control over who & how their data is queried.
How does it work?
Public validation of protected & private data, via blockchain.
Smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain reconcile shipments through a fair, tamper-proof transaction.
ShipChain vaults store transport information as encrypted, and owner-controlled data on a sidechain.
Public vs. Private Chains
The word "public" doesnt mean public data.
Public chains are open-to-anyone, free-to-join marketplace.
Private chains are permissioned—they require an invitation to join.
Public chains validate data by solving a complex, cryptographic problem.
On private chains, the single regulatory authority validates all blocks.
Only public blockchains are decentralized & offer trustless, transparent data.
Private chains are owned by a singular company & person, and thus not tamper-proof.
Businesses across industries looking for a unified solution & visibility for global supply chain can benefit from ShipChain.
Major concerns exist over privacy and transparency in pharmaceutical supply chains. Safeguarding medications from exposure in-transit, tampering, or counterfeiting is important to prevent the consumer or even B2B reseller unknowingly putting the health of millions at risk. Blockchain validation grants complete access to product from manufacturing to distribution.
Medical equipment carries significant standards for testing, and can easily cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Unfortunately, failure to maintain quality control, authenticity, and traceability at every stage of manufacturing and transportation stage can render it useless. When health care professionals need medical equipment, they do not have time to worry about whether it will work as expected.
Food, Agriculture and Farming
In industries involved in food processing and distribution, traceability is crucial to preventing the spread of food-borne illness, as demonstrated by multiple recalls through 2018. Food processing centers and manufacturers can leverage blockchain to reduce risk of food-borne illness by ensuring products are kept at proper temperatures and not subject to tampering. If an illness is found, blockchain could allow for immediate recall and even automated notification of locations that may have the affected products.
Knowing every stage of rental equipment’s lifespan, including runtime and location, is crucial to businesses that rent temporary-use equipment including vehicles, electronics and more. In addition, certain rental equipment may fall under other categories, like durable medical equipment.
