Cowan Systems, a Transport Topics Top 100 for-hire carrier and Top 50 Logistics provider announced it has joined the Blockchain in Transport Alliance (BiTA).

It also makes sense to be part of a consortium of other industry participants and stakeholders where we have input into how the next chapter in supply chain technology will play out.” said David DeCillis, Cowan Systems’ Director of IT. “Blockchain, decentralized apps and smart contracts hold the potential to solve many of the problems that plague the highly transactional and complex world of moving freight.”
The BiTA is a forum for promotion, education, and encouragement to develop and adopt blockchain applications in the trucking, transportation, and logistics industry. BiTA’s goal is for members to participate, discuss, create, and adopt industry standard uses of blockchain applications and to provide clarity and direction for the development of blockchain technology in the trucking industry in a manner that will create efficiency, transparency, and foster trust. BiTA standards are intended to create a common framework to help organizations develop and adopt blockchain technology.
