TEL AVIV, Israel, June 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Hong Kong based SPARX Logistics, one of the fastest growing 3PLs in the global market offering logistics and supply chain services, completed a successful pilot over LogChain's Blockchain end-to-end platform, handling all aspects of the supply-chain by implementing electronic bill of lading (e-BL).
SPARX Logistics, with over 28 branches worldwide, shipped electronic goods from China to Canada over the digitized and tamper-proof LogChain platform. The shipment was fully conducted using the unique LogChain e-BL, which includes the ownership lifecycle and business workflow, as well as digital electronic documentation.
The LogChain platform, which is hosted on Microsoft Azure cloud, using Ethereum private consortia, enables International Logistics, Shipping companies and Freight Forward companies to reduce 7 to 9% of shipment costs, and reduces, on average, two weeks of work in bureaucratic documentation for each shipment. As the maritime shipping industry continuously grows at 3-4% annually, already standing at over 80% of the global trade volume now valued at over $2 trillion, the impact on the industry is overwhelming.
LogChain CEO & Co-Founder Dudi Avni, commented on the announcement: "We are extremely honored and proud to lead the Blockchain revolution in the shipping industry. We have achieved this successful pilot, one of the few of its kind to have ever taken place, with a faster and more reliable service. We are now working together with leading international companies, such as SPARX, in order to pioneer the much-needed change in the international shipping industry."
