Samsung SDS and ABN AMRO will collaborate on a trial project that applies blockchain to shipping logistics, the companies have announced.
The South Korean IT services firm and Netherlands bank will connect their blockchain platforms Nexledger and Corda, respectively, with the project expected to be completed in February next year.
