Blockchain: UPS and Herd X ship beef from USA to Japan
UPS will work with Herd X, a USA-based agri-tech solutions provider, to deliver blockchain-verified traced beef from an American farm to Japan. The delivery represents a significant step forward in quality assurance and traceability in the beef industry.
UPS and Herd X collaborated to develop tracking and traceability technology that improves quality assurance for beef products being shipped internationally. UPS created a customised, integrated visibility tool that plugs into Herd X’s blockchain technology, providing live updates and data points throughout the journey.
UPS customs brokers coordinated with health, food and safety regulators in both the USA and Japan to obtain all required certifications that made the delivery possible. (mw)
