DELIVER Blockchain Records The First Container Shipment On Rotterdam Port
Samsung SDS, ABN AMRO, and the Port of Rotterdam have successfully completed a Proof of Concept for their Blockchain project codenamed DELIVER. In the experiment, a container was traced and tracked from the Port of Rotterdam to a barge Terminal in Tilburg where the cargo was moved to a local warehouse. DELIVER is a Blockchain-based ecosystem that is being designed to manage international trade logistics from the point of loading a container on a ship, the voyage itself, and finally, at the port of landing. Hence, the successful completion of the Proof of Concept phase raises the probability of the revolutionary Blockchain platform being deployed for global adoption later on its roadmap.
