The Blockchain in Transport Alliance
The Blockchain in Transport Alliance (BiTA) is a membership-driven organization that was formed in August 2017 to promote the use of blockchain technology in the supply chain. BiTA serves as a community where members collaborate to create greater efficiencies, trust and transparency.
The Alliance was established by experienced technology and transportation/logistics experts to build common standards and promote blockchain education. BiTA is dedicated to determining best practices for blockchain applications in transportation/logistics/supply chain/freight.
BiTA has grown into the largest commercial blockchain alliance in the world, with nearly 500 members that collectively generate over $1 trillion in revenue annually. As a member-driven organization, members provide staff volunteers who serve on the Board, Technical Committees, Working Groups and Think Tanks.
BiTA members include representatives from all modes of commercial surface and air transportation as well as shippers, technology companies, service providers, freight-tech startups and academia. BiTA members have access to information, education, networking opportunities, best practices and commercial outcomes.
Within BiTA, members participate, discuss, create and adopt industry standards that will be the basis for developing blockchain applications. The Alliance also provides educational opportunities through webinars and other means to keep the industry engaged and informed of blockchain use cases and technological changes.
