Maverick Transportation LLC, is excited to announce it has joined the Blockchain in Transport Alliance (BiTA). BiTA is a consortium of industry leaders who share a vision of leveraging blockchain technology to develop standards and provide education for the freight industry.
“Maverick’s technology team, led by Wayne Brown, has always placed an emphasis on evaluating technology that has the potential to improve efficiencies in our business. We look forward to working with BiTA and other members to learn more about blockchain, the standards being developed and determine the applications that might positively impact our industry in the future,” said Eric Grant, VP of Finance at Maverick.
The goal of BiTA is for members to participate, discuss, create, and adopt industry standards that would act as the basis for developing blockchain applications. This will be accomplished through workgroups staffed by members who work in various disciplines such as smart contracts, freight payments, freight forwarding, insurance, banking, asset management, transparency and numerous other ideas continuously under development. The Alliance will also provide educational opportunities through webinars and other means to keep the industry engaged and informed of blockchain use cases and technological changes.
