FAST Logistics Group executives, such as CEO of Logistics Mr. Manuel L. Onrejas Jr. and Group CIO Mr. Jason Jan G. Ngo, share valuable insights on blockchain and supply chain integration in the Philippines.
Marked by rapid technological advancements and evolving market dynamics, the integration of blockchain technology into supply chain management has emerged as a transformative force.
FAST Logistics Group, the Philippines’ premier end-to-end logistics company, is equipped for this technological revolution. This integration is made possible with the company’s team of seasoned executives and the wealth of insights that they have into the intricacies of blockchain supply chain integration.
Take a closer look into the valuable perspectives and expertise that our executives bring to the table, shedding light on how blockchain is reshaping supply chain management and revolutionizing the way businesses operate in an increasingly interconnected world.
On the Heart of Blockchain Technology and Supply Chain
Effective collaboration is undeniably at the heart of successfully integrating blockchain technology into supply chain transactions. Blockchain, at its core, is essentially a distributed and immutable database. These two key attributes, distributed and immutable, are what make it so trustworthy.
The distributed nature ensures that data is not controlled by a single entity, and its immutability ensures that once data is recorded, it cannot be tampered with. This foundation of trust is essential for parties both within and outside a company, such as retailers and manufacturers, to have confidence in the records.
Group CIO Mr. Jason Jan G. Ngo believes that with this trust-based foundation in place, blockchain is poised to simplify and enhance the way that transactions are conducted within the supply chain.
[Blockchain] is a distributed database that is immutable. And I think those two elements are very important because when it’s distributed and it’s immutable, it means nobody can tamper with it. And at its core, it’s all about trust.
He added that this trust is pivotal in handling critical supply chain operations, like proof of deliveries, which rely heavily on the movement of documents among various stakeholders.
However, for blockchain to truly become the source of truth for all parties involved, collaboration is key. Working closely with customers and partners is essential. And embarking on pilot projects with selected principals and their customers can pave the way for a complete end-to-end transaction process.
Blockchain is going to make our work easier – in the same way that email has been so important for modern day communications, blockchain is important for modern day transactions.
This collaboration and practical implementation are what will transform blockchain from a concept into a powerful tool that can be harnessed for production use. This transformation holds the potential to unleash the full power of blockchain technology in the supply chain.
On Blockchain Integration for Operational Advancement
Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize the landscape of average desk jobs and day-to-day operations across industries. Its impact is profound as it introduces a new era of efficiency, transparency, and security.
In the realm of administrative tasks, blockchain eliminates the need for manual paperwork, reducing the risk of human error and streamlining document management. This ensures that employees can dedicate more time to value-added activities rather than grappling with the intricacies of data entry and verification.
Voice Pick By FAST, a voice-picking solution powered by Honeywell™, reduces the reliance on manual documentation and paperwork. Like blockchain, both technologies prioritize real-time information access, providing transparent, shared data to stakeholders for efficient decision-making.
The introduction of blockchain into their work processes ushers in a breath of fresh air, primarily characterized by enhanced efficiency and precision. One of the most significant advantages blockchain offers in this context is its capacity to provide a secure and transparent platform for document management.

Furthermore, blockchain’s transparent and tamper-proof ledger provides a real-time, shared source of truth, allowing employees to access accurate information swiftly. This transparency engenders trust among colleagues and partners. Thus, fostering smoother collaborations and reducing the need for extensive back-and-forth communication.
Ultimately, blockchain empowers professionals in logistics and supply chain management to operate with greater precision, efficiency, and confidence in their day-to-day roles. As a result, it not only enhances operational accuracy and efficiency, but also enables employees to focus on more strategic and creative aspects of their roles.
