Abstract:The paper investigates the application of blockchain in logistics on true potential. Also, for each application, a time estimation is given for the adoption of blockchain in logistics. In order to have a grounded view on the potential of blockchain technology as a whole, a literature review is done on the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of blockchain technology, which are summarized a SWOT diagram. Besides, a literature review and expert interview are done for applications of blockchain in logistics. This resulted in “Track and Trace” and “Digitalization of paperwork” as main applications of blockchain in logistics, of which “Track and Trace” has high potential to disturb logistics on the short-term, and “Digitalization of paperwork” can be useful in logistics on short-term.
