Fullbay, a cloud-based management platform for independent truck shops, has joined the Blockchain in Trucking Alliance (BiTA), formed by seasoned logistics and technology professionals who will work together on the first set of transportation and trucking blockchain standards.
BiTA’s goal is to establish direction for the development of blockchain in the business logistics industry. The alliance, which is the first of its kind, works to provide the education, clarity and resources necessary to engage new partners in transportation, finance and technology to unlock the efficiency and benefits in blockchain technology.
“We believe that blockchain can play a critical role in the business logistics industry, not only making transactions faster and more secure, but also making the trucks and heavy equipment on our roads safer. We look forward to working with other thought leaders to establish this network,” Jacob Findlay, Fullbay founder and CEO, said.
All of the companies in BiTA have the same mission, which is to develop a standard, educate the freight market on blockchain applications and set an example of standardization excellence.
