A blockchain technology-based container logistics pilot was carried out from Asia to the Netherlands. ABN AMRO Bank N.V. is a Dutch bank who has completed the pilot.

All parties involved in the trade flow will benefit from more effective controls, greater efficiency, transparency and traceability.”

A Europe seaport called the Port of Rotterdam Authority and a software solutions & IT services company called Samsung SDS supported the Dutch bank ABN Amro N.V. in working upon the blockchain technology-based container logistics pilot. This working was started at the end of 2018.

Edwin van Bommel added, “With these pilots we will be integrating all the supply chain flows: from workflow management combined with track & trace to the digitisation of paper documentation such as waybills and the financing of handled freight or services. The ultimate objective is to reach an open, independent and global platform that operates from the perspective of shippers.”
Edwin van Bommel has deep understandings in areas like digital strategy, digital transformation, user experience design, advanced analytics, and financial institutions-based artificial intelligence (AI). The focus of Edwin van Bommel is on the acceleration of innovation as the CIO of ABN AMRO N.V, according to the official LinkedIn account of Edwin van Bommel.
The Dutch bank ABN Amro Bank N.V. is recognized as the third-largest Netherlands bank.
It was established in the year 1991. It is located in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Kees van Dijkhuizen is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the bank. 2009 is the year when the bank was re-founded, according to ABN AMRO Wikipedia page.

Opening up the blockchain technology-based container logistics pilot to a wide range of shippers is a plan of the Dutch bank ABN Amro, Finextra Research reported.
