The value of a blockchain-enabled supply chain

Foster the creation of reliable and sustainable supply chains through leveraging blockchain

Even in normal times, managing supply chains has become a significant challenge, with layers of complexity that have evolved organically, contributing to inefficiency and heightening risk. The current pandemic has brought these difficulties into sharp focus, highlighting the limits of supply chains across industries and regions.

In this series of articles, Damien de Chillaz, Jörg Junghanns (Vice President Europe – Digital Supply Chain, Capgemini’s Business Services), Adrien Calvayrac (France AIE Lead), Jean-Baptiste Meriem, and their colleagues consider the extent to which blockchain technology can be used to overcome these challenges, and to create supply chain models that are more reliable, sustainable, and frictionless.

The series of articles looks at how blockchain can:

The first article looks at some of the obstacles that can be encountered in the supply chain, and the degree to which blockchain technology can change the game for the better.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next article in this series, published over the coming weeks, which explore the fascinating subject of how can blockchain transform your supply chain to help create, what we call, the Frictionless Enterprise.

The Frictionless Enterprise-blockchain for the supply chain

Managing a modern supply chain is rather like solving a Rubik’s cube. It’s multi-faceted, and actions taken in one plane have consequences in others. Keeping track of them all can be difficult.
In fact, supply chain management is, if anything, more complicated than this. Several factors are beyond your control – regulatory changes, for instance – whereas a Rubik’s cube simply does what it’s told.

In this paper, we’re going to look at some of the obstacles that can be encountered in the supply chain, and the degree to which blockchain technology can change the game for the better.​

In the first paper in this series, we considered some typical supply chain challenges, and the extent to which blockchain technology can address them. In this paper, we will look at one of those challenges in more detail.
