Today, global container trade is believed to account for over 60 percent of all world seaborne traffic, which in 2017 was valued at around 12 trillion U.S. dollars.

Blockchain technology’s potential utility in enabling traceability and transparency while boosting trade efficiency and cost effectiveness has been well documented. Coffee giant Starbucks is currently in the midst of an initiative to test this premise.
