Marseilles backs the Blockchain

[ March 6, 2019   //   ]

The Marseille Fos port authority is backing a Blockchain pilot that aims to enhance logistics on the Mediterranean-Rhone-Saone axis. Due on stream in June, the proof of concept prototype will test the securitisation of the digital transport chain. The Blockchain solution will give certified users direct access to protected documentation, enabling numerous parties to share data without the need for dedicated infrastructure. Implementation of the pilot will be shared by three companies – Marseille Gyptis International (MGI), the cargo tracking specialist; BuyCo, providers of a collaborative platform simplifying imports and exports of containers; and Blockchain solutions specialist KeeeX.
