Most of today’s solutions lack the transparency to trace components effectively, resulting in bottlenecks and lost revenue. As an immutable, transparent ledger, blockchain can help verify, authenticate, and track inputs across complex automotive supply chains.

Automotive Use Cases

Gray Markets

Gray markets cost companies billions worldwide, siphoning revenue from legitimate automotive producers and suppliers. Blockchain can help eliminate this issue by authenticating parts from presale to post-production, including after-market components.

Vehicle Titles

As a decentralized repository, blockchain can store vehicle titles as immutable records, validating ownership and automating paper processes.

Supply Chain Management

Blockchain supports powerful track and trace functionality, providing stakeholders with real-time supply chain oversight.

Emissions Tracking

As more enterprises adopt sustainable practices, blockchain can help tokenize and track emissions throughout vehicle production and operation. These insights can help determine the effectiveness of company initiatives when quantifying CO2 emissions.

Customer Experience

Automotive companies can use blockchain to deliver loyalty programs, enhancing the customer experience and building brand loyalty. Specifically, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) can digitize the delivery of incentives and rewards, proving ownership of digital and real-world experiences.

Additive Manufacturing

Companies can leverage blockchain to bolster their additive manufacturing initiatives. Specifically, automotive stakeholders can securely store part specifications as immutable blockchain records, ensuring ongoing quality assurance.
