FedEx CIOs call on governments to integrate mandatory blockchain standards for the global shipping industry

FedEx Chief Information Officer Rob Carter called on governments to integrate mandatory blockchain standards for the global shipping industry. Carter claims that this will enable the authorities to better track the source of goods and help combat the trafficking of counterfeit goods and illegal goods. He also emphasized that blockchain technology is far superior to current digital document transmission systems, which have used technology for more than 60 years but do not provide real-time data.
