Shipping Giant UPS And HerdX Track Beef Supply From US Farm To Japan Using Blockchain Tech

    UPS and HerdX Blockchain Partner to bring real-time data monitoring to consumers as to where their food is coming from.

    UPS, a leading transportation and logistics provider from the United States which was founded back in 1907 has partnered with a leading Agri tech provider HerdX, in order to track the beef being transported from the US to Japan using blockchain technology. The recent partnership to use blockchain to track the quality of beef suggest the growing popularity of DLT in the food and supply industry.

    There has been a growing demand among consumers to be able to know where their food comes from, along with the quality they are buying, but there is no standardized method to trace the food from its origin to the consumers. Thus, blockchain is changing that demographic quite fast with reliable and real-time data monitoring.

    The partnership between the courier company and the technology solution provider created a tracking system that ensures quality assurance for the beef being internationally supplied. UPS developed a tool that provides live updates and data point on the journey of the beef from the US to Japan. This tool will be integrated with the HerdX blockchain network to track that life feeds and real-time data assuring great transparency and reliability.

    Romaine Seguin, President of UPS Global Freight Forwarding said,

    “Blockchain verification for international air freight shipments is complex and requires a great amount of expertise in customs and freight forwarding. Getting it right has implications for many industries, such as restaurants, food & beverage, and retail. We’re committed to upholding HerdX’s industry-leading quality assurance and traceability standards for all customers eyeing international growth moving forward.”

    How Does the Tracking of Food Work?

    UPS ships the beef from the United States in its ‘UPS temperature true' packaging which is a thermal management solution which comprises of temperature-sensitive air freight containers to keep the shipped beef in optimum condition. These containers are fitted with a range of sensors to provide the temperature of these containers from start to end. When the beef arrives at their destination in a steakhouse, consumers are provided with a QR code along with their menus which they can scan to trace the journey of their beef.

    UPS worked its way to obtain all necessary certification and licenses from health, food and safety regulators in both the U.S. and Japan.
