TELL ME MORE...

HackTheIndustry is intended to develop proof of concepts to help the community understand the possibilities of blockchain, IoT, FreightTech and data applications. For example, as a blockchain use case, we might like to see how this technology could be used to create self-executing contracts.

Other use cases may include:

  • Truck and trailer efficiency
  • Driver efficiency
  • Fuel efficiency
  • Supply chain & logistics efficiency and optimization
  • Data optimization
  • Blockchain
  • Tracking and visibility
  • Semi-autonomous
  • Driver management
  • Internet of Trucking

We’ll provide other topics closer to the event date.
