Transflo Joins Blockchain in Trucking Alliance

| October 2, 2017


Transflo, a leading mobile, telematics, and business process automation provider to the transportation industry, has joined the Blockchain in Trucking Alliance (BiTA) to develop technology standards, promote educational efforts, and implement blockchain capabilities in the trucking and freight shipment industry.

Here’s why it’s significant: Blockchain is a type of technology that structures data in blocks that serve as a transparent activity ledger, documenting transaction history among parties. The technology can be used to manage and validate different types of economic transactions.

Transflo’s teams have been exploring use cases about blockchain and the company’s electronic logging, mobile, and imaging solutions. Industry standards may help them bring new solutions to market.

A leader in enterprise mobility, telematics, and business process automation for the transportation industry, Transflo on track to facilitate more than $54 billion in freight bills, send 75 million mobile communications, and digitize nearly 500 million documents annually.

“Software and technology continue to accelerate change across the transportation sector,” stated Frank Adelman, Transflo President and Chief Executive Officer. “With the right standards and industry support, blockchain may dramatically improve data quality and transform the way the industry does business.”

BiTA members are working together to tackle initiatives that encourage the use of specific applications that improve contract management, shipment optimization, and record keeping.

“Transflo’s unique mobile, ELD, and document footprint provide important representation to the Blockchain in Trucking Alliance,” offers Craig Fuller, Co-founder of BiTA. “They’re a credible leader with a history of digitizing trucking processes.”
