Edge Logistics announced its new partnership with BiTA – the Blockchain in Trucking Alliance. Since 2014, Edge Logistics has constantly searched for new, innovative and time-saving ways to create better efficiency and transparency with its carrier network and is excited about the evolution of blockchain technology. In the past three years, Edge has opened three locations, quadrupled its employee base, and expanded its network of carriers to thousands. Edge Logistics was founded by William Kerr and Jordan Lanyi; both veterans of the 3PL industry with offices in New York, Chicago, and Austin.
“We wanted to join a group of industry leaders who are pressing forward this new technology that will have a major impact on the transportation industry,” said Edge Logistics President William Kerr. “Edge wants to be a part of that change, and believes that the mission of BiTA is in line with our mission to deliver excellence in transportation for our customers.”
Founded in August 2017, the Blockchain in Trucking Alliance (BiTA) is a forum for promotion, education, and encouragement to develop and adopt blockchain applications in the trucking, transportation, and logistics industry. BiTA’s goal is for members to participate, discuss, create, and adopt industry standard uses of blockchain applications and to provide clarity and direction for the development of blockchain technology in the trucking industry in a manner that will create efficiency, transparency, and foster trust. BiTA standards are intended to create a common framework to help organizations develop and adopt blockchain technology. For more information, visit www.bita.studio
