In August, two Chinese shipping companies, Yuanben, and Maritime Silk Road Platform announced their partnership to use blockchain to label cargoes and routes to streamline the maritime logistics.
The partnership will use blockchain technology to provide node deployment, search interface for cargo tracking, and digital content deposit certificates.
Earlier this year, US technology giant IBM and Maersk, one of the largest cargo logistic companies, have launched TradeLens, a blockchain-based shipping system that uses DLT0based smart contracts as an alternative to traditional deal-making process in world trading.
