Explore the benefits of supply chain visibility, building brand trust, increasing efficiencies, and sharing with partners with IBM Blockchain Transparent Supply.

Overview

Enable transparency across multiple supply chain partners

Sharing data is good for business. Sharing data on an enterprise blockchain platform is even better because you decide who can see your data. With a supply chain transparency solution, you can create an immutable, distributed and shared ledger to transact with your supply chain partners in a more trusted and efficient way. In a world where speed, accuracy and connectivity define optimal supply chains, blockchain is essential.

The IBM Blockchain Transparent Supply solution provides a blockchain platform that enables companies to build their own data-sharing ecosystem with trusted supply chain partners.
