Now as a leading academic and thought leader, he along with Bhaskar and Aljosja bring clarity to the complexity of blockchain implementation. This book represents a breakthrough in the understanding of an exciting new stage in distribution disruption. --Patrick Burnson, Executive Editor, Supply Chain Management Review, US Engaging, focused and useful, Blockchain and the Supply Chain is an articulate and highly readable synthesis of current thinking on blockchain and its practical applications in the supply chain industry. This should be recommended reading for all leaders and industry professionals in logistics and supply chain. --Sarabjeet Chugh, Senior Director of Products, Oracle Blockchain, US As blockchain continues to evolve from concept to application, its promise and potential value to the supply chain merits serious discussion. Blockchain and the Supply Chain offers a compelling look at this emerging topic in the backdrop of the global supply chain. The authors illustrate how blockchain could be leveraged to solve some of the supply chain's enduring challenges, as it transistions from tool to solution. This is the book for anyone interested in connecting blockchain to the supply chain. --Noel Hacegaba, Deputy Executive Director, Port of Long Beach
