Blockchain & The Temperature Controlled Supply Chain: Is It Time For Pharma Logistics Leaders In Canada to Embrace Blockchain?

Blockchain & The Temperature Controlled Supply Chain: Is It Time For Pharma Logistics Leaders In Canada to Embrace Blockchain?

As 2019 CCGF Canada speaker Nedal Ismail, Professor and Program Coordinator Bachelor of Commerce, Supply Chain Management & Management Studies, The Business School, Humber Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning, puts it, though "it is not immediately apparent if blockchain will bring an incremental change (i.e. a marginal improvement in existing processes), or a disruptive change (one that will completely change the way the business is conducted), one thing is clear: blockchain stands to transform pharma logistics over the next decade. From enabling increased transparency, security, communication and efficiency, the potential benefits of blockchain seem limitless.

In this in-depth report, we demystify blockchain by shedding light on:

  • Current use cases and applications of blockchain in pharma logistics both here in Canada and abroad
  • Key barriers to adoption and challenges associated with blockchain
  • The future of blockchain technology and how it could potentially be used to optimize the pharma supply chain in years to come
  • Why Canada is becoming a global hub for blockchain innovation both within life sciences and beyond
