Survey: Only a few shipping companies use digital technologies such as blockchain

According to a survey released by the German Federal Institute of Information Technology, Telecommunications and New Media, 79% of freight companies regard digitalization as the biggest problem in the logistics field. While most companies have the advantage of digitalization by default, only a few have applied artificial intelligence, blockchain or 3D printing. The resistance is mainly due to high talent costs, insufficient reserves of skilled workers and fierce international competition.
