Author(s): T. Brink, P. Sprenger, A. T. Schulte,


The paper provides a brief introduction to blockchain technology (BCT) and a forward-looking approach on how blockchain and smart contracts can be applied to existing Supply Chain Finance (SCF) solutions – inventory financing and status based receivabel financing – in order to promote the use of SCF offered by Logistics Service Providers (LSPs). Practitioners, especially in the LSP sector, can find relevant information with regard to the promising potential of BCT for SCF.
