A brief about Web 3.0 in the Supply chain & logistics industry

Lately, the advancement of supply chain and logistics is getting a lot of attention because of an enormous backlog on the global supply chain post-pandemic. Logistics and supply chain runs the world and inefficiencies directly translate to slower global economic growth.

Technological advancements are always thought of when it comes to removing inefficiencies. Web 3.0 has many applications to offer efficient solutions for the root cause of inefficiencies in the supply chain.

For an instance, smart contracts and decentralised data management can remove the layer of time-consuming immigration and paper trails from international trade. Web 3.0 and its application are about more than just Blockchain. An amalgamation of Artificial intelligence, Blockchain and IoT is required to make viable solutions for the supply chain using web 3.0 technologies.

Let’s take a quick look at how Web 3.0 can fill all the gaps in the supply chain and logistics industry.

Benefits of Web 3.0 for supply chain and logistics

  • Automating paper trail with smart contracts : Smart contracts are a particular type of digital contract with all the conditions from all the parties involved in the complete supply chain. The approvals are automated as line items are fulfilled in the smart contracts.

  • Intelligent tracking : Smart tracking can remove manual checkpoint verifications. A distributed digital ledger can be maintained and connected with RFIDs to keep everyone in sync on the status of shipment/cargo.

  • Replacing time logs bookkeeping with time stamping and hashings :Following the previous point, time stamping can also be migrated to complete automation. Hashing mechanisms can be implemented over the blockchain with intelligent tracking features.

  • Blockchain-based audit trails : Shifting all the paper trails on Blockchain will provide the stakeholders with a real-time sync and historical data about any change in audit papers, like any change in sale order, purchase order, delivery allotment, and more.

  • Security and Maintenance : Papers are easy to lose, and physical files are hard to store. Shifting to Blockchain for decentralised data storage can let you have your data for decades. Along with this, we can have the high-security standards of Blockchain.

Implementing Web 3.0 and related technologies can fill up the above-mentioned gaps quickly to make the supply chain and logistics industry more efficient.

Moreover, implementing Web 3.0 and other technologies will help the supply chain with better traceability, transparency and smoother trade.
