Consolidated Chassis Management has joined the Blockchain in Transport Alliance (BiTA), a first of its kind organization comprised of the leading companies in the transportation industry, sharing a unified mission to promote, educate and encourage the development of blockchain applications in the market.
Consolidated Chassis Management currently manages the combined fleet of multiple contributors at six cooperative chassis pools across the United States and continues its growth in management scope as evidenced most recently by the OPEN Choice Equipment Agreement - Northeast, (OCEA-N) port-wide cooperative chassis pool. By joining BiTA, CCM will continue to support and balance the needs of industry participants as blockchain is adopted throughout the shipping landscape.
“We are excited to join BiTA,” said Jon Poelma, President and COO of CCM. “BiTA recognizes the importance of creating a forum for industry leaders to establish industry standards in blockchain use. For CCM we intend to position ourselves to support the adoption of blockchain applications as our members and their customers integrate this technology into their supply chain.”
BiTA was formed by experienced tech and transportation executives to create a forum for the development of blockchain standards and education for the freight industry. Our goal is to bring together leading companies in the freight technology industries that have a vested interest in the development of blockchain technology.
