The logistics and supply chain industry has benefitted from embracing innovation and technology throughout its history. Inefficiencies stem from poor coordination, outmoded processes, redundant paperwork, and myriad manual transactions. This segment of Advancements will take a look at how the Fr8 Network is building the rules, standard, and formats for communication in logistics. Ultimately providing greater visibility into shipments, an immutable record of the regulatory requirements, and expedient settlement for all parties.

“At Fr8 Network, problems facing the logistics industry have become requirements for the development of the Fr8 Protocol. The protocol will bring the industry much needed cooperation by providing consensus on the rules, behaviors, and formats of communication in the ecosystem, said Sloane Brakeville, Co-Founder and CEO, Fr8 Network”

With the foundations established in the Fr8 Protocol, applications can be built that conform the agreed global standards. These applications, deployed on the blockchain-backed infrastructure of the protocol, will connect carriers, suppliers, brokers, and the rest of the logistics industry around a shared resource.

“The Fr8 Protocol addresses the current challenges in the global supply chain ecosystem,” said Michael Devine, senior producer and content development lead for the Advancements series. “We are thrilled to share this technology with our viewers.”
