SBI Holdings, Hyakushoichiba, and CTIA: Beginning demonstration experiment to launch agricultural product supply chain platform using blockchain technology

SBI Holdings, Inc., Hyakushoichiba,inc., and CTIA are starting a POC for information sharing and operational efficiency in the rice “shipping” process to build a supply chain platform for agricultural products based on blockchain/distributed ledger technology. Traditionally, in agricultural supply chains, production and shipping plans have been individually managed by each participating organization: producers, wholesalers, logistics, processers, warehousing, trade, domestic and destination retailers. Therefore, the entire supply chain will be overloaded in the event of a sudden change in demand or a pandemic, and the functionality of the supply chain will be degraded or lost. In addition, the agricultural industry is facing problems and challenges arising from many inefficient workflows and analog operations such as paperwork and faxing. The platform will record operations and transactions in the agricultural supply chain. The operational history is recorded using blockchain/distributed ledger technology to establish consistent data and secure data sharing inside and outside the organization. We aim to automate transactions and improve efficiency by sharing data throughout the supply chain and to implement traceability (information tracking) of distribution. In this POC, we will verify processes using “Traceability as a Service (TaaS)” developed by CTIA. Hyakushoichiba has prepared several verification scenarios for the receiving and shipping processes of rice from Ibaraki Prefecture. We will measure the effectiveness of business efficiency, verify the security of data sharing, and design the UI. The POC period is scheduled to take about two months.

CTIA announced business solutions on R3 Corda that bring finance and industry closer together

A new solution has been born that allows all stakeholders such as producers, manufacturing companies, trading companies, certification bodies, transport companies, warehouses, retail stores, banks, securities companies, insurance companies, unions, etc. to participate in one platform. Using distributed ledger technology, CTIA has developed a business solution, “Traceability as a Service,” to solve problems in various industries. “Traceability as a Service” is a solution that supports optimization of business efficiency according to demand regardless of the size of the organization. Prior to the launch of the service in November, an introductory demonstration of a supply chain was presented at CordaCon 2019 on October 23 and 24, 2019 in London, England. By introducing “Traceability as a Service”, the solution will bring about an innovative workflow with real-time features which have been difficult to carry out effectively with traditional systems. In the supply chain, which is one of the areas where this system is expected to be effective, organizations such as participating producers, manufacturers, certification bodies, transportation companies, warehouses, trading companies, retail stores, etc. often plan and manage their own production plans, transportation plans, and inventory plans separately. In addition, as lot numbers complicated with demand increases in the organization of companies involved in manufacturing, the risk of human error also increases. For this reason, in the event of sudden changes in demand or in product specifications, artificial workarounds such as the establishment of a department to supervise are implemented, which forces a heavy burden on the movement of the entire supply chain. At present, many of these problems occur in many organizations. CTIA develops business solutions that can be introduced by any organization, large or small, to realize a supply chain that […]
