Short description

Making the flows in international supply chains visible reduces information asymmetry and enables more efficient and less risky chains. This multidisciplinary project aims to analyze how the roles of different supply chain actors may change when the physical, informational and financial flows are made visible throughout the supply chain. The project rests on the assumption that digitalization, and related technologies, can be used to identify and strengthen the weakest links in the supply chain. The project involves researchers from logistics, finance and law as well as numerous practitioners from banks, multinational firms and industry associations.
