三星也要加入区块链大战

区块链技术是被认作是保证芯片和智能手机运输速度变得更快的方式,韩国制造商可能是全球范围内第一个部署区块链技术的电子制造商。

世界最大的智能手机和半导体制造商三星,将把基于区块链技术的加密货币应用到处理其庞大的全球供应网络。

负责分布式存储数据服务的三星SDS公司的区块链部门主任 Song Kwang-woo表示,三星电子有限公司正在考虑应用区块链的分布式系统来追踪全球范围内每年数百亿美元的货物运输领域,这项手段也会成为三星SDS用于物流信息领域的核心手段。与此同时,根据三星SDS公司公开信息,这项技术也会降低货运成本的20%。

尽管全球各地的众多公司和集团表示它们都正在从跨境支付到追踪超市商品的使用周期来部署区块链,但是三星集团是第一个以认真的态度在业务中使用分布式账本技术的全球制造商。三星SDS致力于为三星电子集团配置集团系统,三星SDS也在集团中拥有掌上明珠的位置。

三星SDS公司的副主席Song表示:“它将在制造行业的供应链上带来巨大影响,区块链是促进数字化转型的核心平台。”

比特币的崛起引发了人们的关注,区块链技术已经被奉为交易记录、交易识别、交易共享方式转型的突破点。全球领先的研究和咨询公司Gartner预测,尽管迄今为止它对企业界的影响有限,但截至2025年区块链相关的业务项目将会创造1760亿美元。

将区块链应用于运输领域的支持者主张,区块链技术会降低纸质类文件工作花费的时间并且更好地协调港口当局。根据正在与A.P.Moeller-Maersk A / S合作追踪货物移动并自动化运输文件的国际商业机器公司的报告,在集装箱运输过程中,文件类成本相比于运输成本会超过2倍。

根据SDS公司计划于今年处理48万8千吨空运货物以及100万个单位的20英寸标准箱运输。这些货物将包括由三星电子公司制造的有机发光二极管显示器和三星S9手机。根据位于首尔的韩国大学工业工程学教授Cheong Tae-su表示,区块链系统将会帮助三星公司降低在产品发布到实际运输的时间滞后性,帮助公司更好地应对竞争产品并且根据如中国等新兴市场的消费者倾向进行产品调节。

Cheong 教授表示,这项技术可以削减开销并消除瓶颈,并最大限度地扩大供给效率及可视性,这也会最终转化成来自消费者更强的信任。

 

The world’s biggest maker of smartphones and semiconductors may use the technology behind cryptocurrencies to manage its vast global supply network.

Samsung Electronics Co. is considering a blockchain ledger system to keep track of global shipments worth tens of billion of dollars a year, according to Song Kwang-woo, the blockchain chief at Samsung SDS Co., the group’s logistical and information and technology arm. The system could cut shipping costs by 20 percent, according to SDS.

While companies around the world have said they’re planning to deploy blockchain technology on everything from cross-border payments to tracking the life-cycle of supermarket chickens, Samsung Group is one of the first global manufacturers to take a serious look at using the distributed ledgers in its operations. SDS is working on the system for Samsung Electronics, the conglomerate’s crown jewel.

“It will have an enormous impact on the supply chains of manufacturing industries,” said Song, who’s also a vice president at SDS. “Blockchain is a core platform to fuel our digital transformation.”

Thrust into the spotlight by bitcoin’s meteoric rise, blockchain technology has been touted as a breakthrough that will transform the way transactions are recorded, verified and shared. While its impact on the corporate world has been limited so far, Gartner Inc. predicts blockchain-related businesses will create $176 billion of value by 2025.

Blockchain proponents in the shipping industry say the technology reduces the time needed to send paperwork back and forth and to coordinate with port authorities. Documentation costs for container shipments are more than twice as big as those for transportation, according to International Business Machines Corp., which is working with A.P. Moeller-Maersk A/S to track cargo movements and automate shipping paperwork.

SDS expects to handle 488,000 tons of air cargo and 1 million 20-foot-equivalent (TEU) shipping units this year. That would include organic light-emitting diode displays and Galaxy S9 phones made by Samsung Electronics. A blockchain system may help the company reduce the time lag between product launches and actual shipments, making it easier to respond to rival products and shifting consumer appetites in emerging markets like China, according to Cheong Tae-su, professor of industrial engineering at Korea University in Seoul.

“It cuts overhead and eliminates bottlenecks,” Cheong said. “It’s about maximizing supply efficiency and visibility, which translates into greater consumer confidence.”
