After a successful trial of IBM's blockchain platform for electronic bills of lading for tracking a shipment of containers, Pacific International Lines and the Port of Singapore will expand the pilot to the entire port in a project called TradeTrust. The project is looking to expand the secure and efficient processing of paper-based bills in digital form, reducing document transfer time from seven days to hours and likely reducing the processing and administration costs of a container by 20%. While just announced, logistics is one of the use cases where we believe blockchain has the most potential impact in offering tangible benefits and ROI.
