IOTA recently announced its collaboration with TradeMarkEastA to enhance the infrastructure and trading activities in Africa via the IOTA Tangle solution. The partnership between the two firms will be focused on streamlining the supply chain management involved in trades from one place to another. It aims to control the approximate 4 trillion loss, which occurs during transit. The new technology will help the involved parties to be well-connected with each other using GPS protocols, smartphone technology, and all high-tech and advanced mechanisms. IOTA envisions to enhance the global supply chain structure by providing an immutable, secured, and transparent audit trail. By doing so, all the nodes involved in the process shall be enriched with the complete knowledge about ‘how, when, why’ of the products rolling in the supply chain.
