dnata Successfully Tests the Use of Blockchain Technology with its Programme Partners

dnata’s cargo operations, in conjunction with Emirates Innovation Lab, IBM and flydubai Cargo, has created a new value proposition for cargo service delivery through the use of blockchain technology. This has added value by eliminating redundant data and improve visibility and transparency for all stakeholders. As a result, processes can been more streamlined and simplified right from the origin to the final destination.

Kevin Ennis, Vice President Commercial and Business Development for dnata’s UAE Cargo Operations, said, “dnata has always been at the forefront of innovation, and the success of our study to use blockchain technology in our operations means greater security, efficiency and cost savings to our customers. We are on the cusp of revolutionising the way we operate, and the success of this initiative with our partners will give the industry a real boost towards seamless service delivery. ”

Blockchain technology is a secure, public electronic ledger and peer-to-peer network, that can be managed autonomously to exchange information between different parties.

“Blockchain technology has great potential to exponentially improve efficiency and transparency of business networks, especially in Cargo & Logistic flows. However neither the technology nor the potential is easy to understand or appreciate. Hence it is imperative to carry out such business experiments and trials so that participants can experience the benefits of breakthrough technologies in a live environment,” said Neetan Chopra, Senior Vice President – IT Strategic Services, Emirates Group.

Commenting on the collaboration, Mohamed Hassan, Vice President of flydubai Cargo said, “Blockchain technology is able to transform sectors far beyond financial services. It improves the way we work together in providing reliable and convenient airfreight as it provides end-to-end services. As a result of this collaboration, flydubai Cargo has become the first airline to complete a Proof of Concept (PoC) using blockchain technology in airfreight transportation. We would like to thank all the stakeholders involved who have contributed to this milestone, and we look forward to the benefits that this technology will bring to the industry. ”
