Hvis nogen tror der ikke er plads til forbedringer

Læs f.eks. “Blockchain: A Better Way to Track Pork Chops, Bonds, Bad Peanut Butter?” hvor Maersk kan fortælle om udfordringer ved papirarbejde:

For Maersk, the problem was not tracking the familiar rectangular shipping containers that sail the world aboard its cargo ships — instead, it was the mountains of paperwork that go with each container. Maersk had found that a single container could require stamps and approvals from as many as 30 people, including customs, tax officials and health authorities.

While the containers themselves can be loaded on a ship in a matter of minutes, a container can be held up in port for days because a piece of paper goes missing, while the goods inside spoil. The cost of moving and keeping track of all this paperwork often equals the cost of physically moving the container around the world.

What’s more, the system is rife with fraud. The valuable bill of lading is often tampered with or copied to let criminals siphon off goods or circulate counterfeit products, leading to billions of dollars in maritime fraud each year.

En Blockchain vil i hvert fald løse en del af problemerne.
