The Royal Navy is interested in supply-chain? How is Whisky connected to B/L? And to the blockchain?
My guest Kelroy will enlighten this questions today in this vlog interview!
Kelroy James is a Supply-Chain, Logistics & Operations Management professional with extensive expertise in successfully delivering organizational change and building quality working relationships with key customers. He uses blockchain technology for supply-chain and where he see’s the future, he will tell us in this vlog interview.
He is a Percy Hobart Innovation Fellow in the Royal Navy, TechUp Bootcamp Graduate in Data Engineering from Durham University, DeFi Talent with Frankfurt School Blockchain Center, Graduate of Aston University with a BSc (Hons) in Logistics and Operations Management, and recently completed a Micro Masters In Predictive Analytics using Python with the University of Edinburgh.
With a keen interest in driving organizational improvements, he creates value for stakeholders by designing and implementing processes that integrate strategy, technology, and people.
We are discussing what he is doing with the blockchain technology, to tokenize real world assets, about trading and the B/L, and that there is much room for error in the supply-chain and how the blockchain can avoid them. What is Satoshi’s dream?
“The B/L – Bill of Lading is a document issued by a carrier (or their agent) to acknowledge receipt of cargo for shipment. Although the term historically related only to carriage by sea, a bill of lading may today be used for any type of carriage of goods.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_of_lading
Because in every harbour the B/L looks different, it is very easy to fake it and get some containers out which do not belong to the person. If this document is brought on the blockchain, fraud will be stopped at this point. Maersk and IBM had a lighthouse project for supply-chain and blockchain called “TradeLens”.
