Blockchain-based Bitnautic Platform Set to Reshape Logistics & Shipping Cargo Business

If a new business has to be acquired in the shipping sector these days, a few aspects also follow- such as the quality of the whole logistic process (from supplier to end receiver) and the service hence rendered, making information available to the users and also provide flexibility for the same. This determines how the parties control their businesses and also the entire costs of the whole process. It has come to sight by customers that, there is an increasing tendency to exercise control over the logistic process in order to better plan their follow-up actions. When the required information is made directly accessible to customers, they can organize the logistic processes such that there is less time spent en route. This prompts a requirement for a customer portal with an accompanying app. The points discussed above are the contemporary capabilities; later on, there will be even more far-ranging requirements. As a result, technologies like Blockchain and IOT (Internet of things) are proving to bring upgradations to logistic process. It is known very well that the quality of logistic processes should be transparent which a deliberate component of the same. Several high-end private companies have heavily invested in logistics networks, which may also include their own shipping companies and ports. The main reason for this is that these companies are trying to cut costs by avoiding dependency and taking the process fully under their control.
