Redefining supply chains to drive efficiencies and maximise productivity

Increased visibility into the movement of goods as well as a need to fix the inefficiencies that exist in modern supply chains make blockchain a superb option for businesses. Blockchain has the potential to disrupt global supply chains and drive increases in efficiencies and tracking. 

From driving more accurate data capture to synchronising information across a long process and multiple parties to ensuring transparency around the origins of goods, blockchain technology can use Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) to provide a means of ensuring that all parties can access the same version of truth. A totally trusted network that keeps the process transparent, accessible and unalterable.

Red Skies’s experience working in supply chains, including with port operators and port authorities, can bring time and cost savings across the entire supply chain. Work with us and leverage our blockchain solutions to revolutionise your supply chain.

Blockchain for proving origin of goods

From food provenance to overall port solutions

We have the technology and infrastructure to help you scale your business efficiently and move towards a future proof model of movement of goods. With our decentralised timestamping and finance products, we have a suite of solutions that can work together or independently to provide the answer you need.

Our provenance solution enables producers to gain credibility, accountability and transparency with consumers. Any produce that is faulty or does not adhere to food standards is traceable to the initial producer and action can be taken quickly and effectively. We can provide the opportunity for producers, or any member of the supply chain, to highlight the sustainable nature of their produce. This aligns with the increasing demand for environmentally friendly production and a growing demand for natural, organic and sustainable produce.

Shipping, Ports and Supply Chains

The modern logistics network is extremely complex with multiple parties exchanging goods, packages and documentation dozens of times, leading to cost from duplication of effort and significant risk of errors. Blockchain is changing the way that shipping and supply chains work.

On the road logistics mean that track and trace of packages from door to door, spanning international shipping and road haulage. Our blockchain protocol, Catalyst, has the scale and capacity to keep a global supply chain moving.

From simple integrations to a holistic supply chain solution, get in touch to learn more about how we can maximise efficiencies in your supply chain.

Benefits of blockchain to supply chains


Data that cannot be tampered with equates to higher standards of security and 100% proof of trust.


Goods can be tracked end-to-end in a decentralised, immutable process that cannot be tampered with.


Goods can be traced at any point in the process and all parties in the supply chain see the same version of truth


Blockchain technology can enable more transparent and accurate end to end tracking in a supply chain. By integrating a blockchain solution into your supply chain, physical assets can be digitised and a decentralised, immutable record of transactions created, enabling assets to be tracked from production to delivery or use by end users. This provides a revolutionary way to manage supply chains and reduces inefficiencies and errors.

For supply chains where parties are either not known or trusted or too extensive, blockchain technology can add trust, transparency and traceability. Supply chains can be complex, multi-layered and involving significant volumes of people and blockchain technology offers a way to simplify the required data.
Blockchain can be applied to a vast number of use cases ranging from ports, shipping and cargo to food provenance to recycling of materials.
