Company looks to better understand how blockchain can improve transparency and create greater efficiencies in transportation.

TRAC Intermodal has joined the Blockchain in Transportation Alliance (BiTA), an organization for the development of blockchain standards and education for the transportation industry, with the goal of bringing together leading companies that are committed to developing blockchain technology.  

“TRAC Intermodal has joined BiTA to better understand the role that blockchain can play in improving transparency and creating greater efficiencies among all the stakeholders in chassis provisioning,” said Keith Lovetro, president and chief executive officer at TRAC Intermodal. “We see this partnership as an ideal opportunity to help develop best-in-class standards for blockchain in our industry.”
