Aljosja Beije MSc. has over 20 years’ experience of IT in relation to finance and logistics systems development and implementation in the Far East, Middle East and Europe. Founder of BeSCOPE Solutions, a supply chain and technology consultancy and interim management firm.
When the term smart contracts was first introduced in the summer of 2014, its relevance and potential for logistics and supply chain management was immediately clear to me. Since then, I have been actively involved in development of blockchain based logistics solution, strategic consultancy on blockchain and quartermaster for a dedicated blockchain and logistics fieldlab in the City of Rotterdam. Blockchain could be the foundational technology that integrates the physical flow with the financial and informational flow in a wide range of industries, such as financial services, logistics, telecoms and commodity trade, enabling new business models and more efficient transactions.
