WEF says pandemic strengthens case for using blockchain in supply chains


Blockchain may be the biggest development in supply chain management since the switch to standardized containers decades ago. And the coronavirus pandemic is making the case for the technology stronger, the World Economic Forum says in a new guide on how to use blockchain to build better supply chains. In particular, blockchain could help hospitals trace masks and ensure they are certified according to international standards, says Sheila Warren, who oversees this area at WEF.
