Swissport to explore blockchain usage for aviation and logistics ecosystem


Swissport is launching a blockchain pilot with Olam, a non-profit foundation dedicated to developing an open-source platform for supply chain partners.
The ground handler's head of global cargo operations Hendrik Leyssens stated: "Thinking beyond traditional messaging, blockchain could eventually become the new standard allowing us to overcome the chronic lack of transparency, which is typical for fragmented supply chains.
"Blockchain could speed up transactions, enhance transaction security and at the same time unlock cost savings."
Swissport's passenger services business will also look to apply the new transaction process by partnering with Winding Tree, a blockchain-based travel distribution platform, London's Air Cargo News reported.
The aim is to jointly explore the potential of distributing Swissport's existing travel services and new offers.
'Blockchain allows us to reimagine how we work with our partners in the complex aviation and logistics ecosystem," said Florian Eggenschwiler, who oversees Swissport's innovation unit.
"We expect to see lasting benefits from this technology for fragmented global industries like aviation services and supply chain. It will likely change how service providers, clients and partners will transact with each other.
"We want to get familiar with such technologies early in the innovation cycle and partner with technology leaders to explore its potential in our business for a variety of use cases."
