SCCC to apply blockchain to its supply chain
Published by Jonathan Rowland,
Thai cement producer, Siam City Cement Public Co. (SCCC), is to utilise blockchain technology as part of its supply chain management, aiming to ensure transaction transparency and security. The company will be supported by Bank of Ayudhya, whose blockchain technology will be used in the project.
The blockchain technology will support transactions between distributors, shops, and customers, as well as various types of documentation, such as purchase orders, invoices, settlements, and financing for products in SCCC’s supply chain, the cement producer said.
The pilot project also aims to reduce financial costs and transaction process, as well as increase competitiveness.
