In an optimized supply chain,
every physical product and component will have a digital history

Allows you to trace and verify item origins, attributes and ownership 24/7

Agile Blockchain Corp. is a company geared toward finding solutions to the issues faced by the supply chain industry. The complexity of doing business in a global environment has been increasing and supply chains have become a vast network of interwoven activity. Sometimes products can be sourced from hundreds of locations, pre-assembled in others, and finally assembled in yet another location. All this activity can span over many countries and jurisdictions creating an intricate web of interdependent business functions. Any disruption in even one of these activities can seriously hamper or halt businesses causing costly interruptions.

Blockchain technology is powerful and promises to address tremendous pain points the supply chain is going through including, uncertainty, lack of transparency, lack of trust, theft, time and efficiency, document forgery etc.
