A major port operator in Singapore has inked a deal to work with IBM and a regional shipping firm to test a new blockchain-based supply chain network.

Announcing the news, PSA International, which operates ports in Asia, South America and Europe, said today that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with IBM and Pacific International Lines (PIL), one of the largest liner services in the world.

The three firms will "work together to explore [proofs-of-concept] using technologies like blockchain," according to an announcement published today. The goal of the trial is to automate the flow of documents between trading partners, providing transparency along the way.

Tan Chong Meng, group CEO of PSA, said of the deal:

    "Blockchain has the potential to reduce inefficiencies and gaps within the supply chain, promote more cost-efficient transactions and facilitate the continued growth in world trade. PSA looks forward to working alongside its partners in supporting this initiative and we will contribute our expertise and knowledge in managing ports and advancing supply chains."

The tie-up represents the latest effort within the shipping sector to test the potential of blockchain to solve industry problems, a broad push that has seen some of the world's biggest ship operators and port authorities move to launch trials of the technology.

IBM, too, has built several projects focused on the supply chain use case to date. As reported by CoinDesk, the tech firm partnered with Danish shipping giant Maersk earlier this year, completing a live blockchain trial designed to automate documentation processing using smart contracts.

The network tries to produce one block per 10 minutes. It does this by automatically adjusting how difficult it is to produce blocks.

The blockchain technology behind Bitcoin has already started in revolutionizing many industries and this is just the tip of the iceberg, actually. In the estimates of many analysts, almost all facets of our lives can be enhanced with Bitcoin and yes there is a possibility that even religion too in one way or another can benefits from adopting this innovative new technology. Companies that got the desire to reduce inefficiencies and thereby increase possible profits should look at blockchain as this is one area where this technology can be so effective. Soon, schools or institutions of learning (and earning) would be adopting this blockchain too, that I am so sure.

Soon, we can be the witness of a new era of the history of humanity...one that is greatly enhanced by the blockchain technology. However, I am always wary about human nature because for almost all the good tool/medium we devised there will always be people who can find a way to use for their evil intentions. Hope it would not be that way with the blockchain.
