Blockchain Technology for Logistics Collaboration in Physical Internet


This paper examines the potential contribution of blockchain (BC) technology to the Physical Internet (PI) for enhancing logistics collaboration management, and proposes a forward-looking deployment framework. Inspired by the digital internet, PI is a worldwide emerging logistics paradigm that advocates the interconnection of independent and heterogeneous logistics networks for the mutual sharing of services and assets. Such a paradigm will fundamentally challenge current operations management models and practices to achieve PI-based cooperation and co-opetition. New information technologies, notably BC technology including smart contracts and tokens, are considered promising in this regard. This paper aims to contribute to research by investigating why and how BC can be used in PI from the perspective of collaboration management. We then propose a framework for the deployment of BC in PI from operational to strategic levels. The key requirements as well as challenges to applying state-of-the-art BC technology to PI are also investigated.
