What is a Blockchain?


In essence, the term blockhain describes a dataset commonly employing a distributed shared-access model, append-only transactions, multi-agent consensus, cryptographic keypair signing and a degree of system fault tolerance.


We have shaped Blockfreight™ to meet the specific needs of the global shipping and logistics industry.


Blockfreight™ is the topology of a blockchain in the enterprise of international trade logisitcs, specifically shipping container logistics.

Package Goods into Standard Data for Shipment and Delivery

A Blockfreight™ transaction is a standard unit of data that packages up shipping information all its dependencies so the container shipment runs quickly and reliably from anyone to anyone, from anywhere to anywhere. A Blockfreight™ transaction is a lightweight, standalone, executable package of goods that includes everything needed to deliver a a shipping container: manifest, receiver details, finance, insurance, duties, certifications and special instructions.


Blockfreight™ transactions become blockchain records at runtime and in the case of confirmed transactions may be accessed when they run on a Blockfreight™ Node. Available for both Linux and Windows-based applications, a Blockfreight™ Node will always access the shared global dataset, regardless of the infrastructure. Blockfreight™ node software can interface to your existing environment and be accessed via API to extend your existing freight managment workflow.


Transactions that run on the Blockfreight™ Blockchain:

Standard: Blockfreight™ created the industry standard for containers, so they could be portable anywhere

Lightweight: Containers share the blockchains’s data system and therefore do not require per application storage, driving higher efficiencies and reducing server maintainence and cloud licensing costs

Secure: Tranasctions are safer in Blockfreight™ and we provide the strongest default security capabilities in the industry
