Project overview

Owing to the potential of blockchain technologies and AI, the resulting logistics IT platform enables shippers to automate monotonous workflows, optimize business processes, detect bottlenecks, and identify logistics process challenges. On top of that, end-users can monitor and overview shipment activities in real-time.

Andersen’s team played two roles while working on the IT tool. On the one hand, the customer wanted to make the system more stable and user-friendly. Thus, they needed to expand their development team and get access to our IT talent pool possessing solid expertise in the field of blockchain. On the other hand, the customer lacked testing procedures and policies. As a result, the customer had to deal with multiple bugs and defects. Hance, Andersen’s team helped the customer set up QA processes.

Andersen’s expert team of full-stack developers with a significant blockchain track record was entrusted to resolve the tech challenge of transforming the way shippers, logistics service providers, and carriers manage global operational issues and handle multi-enterprise data. In addition, we were requested to provide our client with a QA team to implement a reliable testing framework for the project's web app.

While working on that IT project, Andersen's team focused on designing and building a clean and user-friendly API as well as a range of robust, scalable, and high-performing enterprise-grade microservices. Another development task was all about applying cutting-edge P2P protocols to deliver a safe and decentralized solution.

As for the testing process, such procedures were set up from scratch. Our QA experts successfully designed a testing strategy, built a traceability matrix, and introduced a test reporting process.

App functionality

  • Public ledger system capable of keeping records concerning each shipped container, with all information and documentation safely encrypted and shared in one place
  • A complete analysis covering each operation carried out with the appropriate insights (timestamp events, verified transactions in a transparent fashion, etc.)
  • Smart contracts intended to ensure greater supply chain visibility and traceability
  • Leverage to keep all involved parties updated on containers’ whereabouts and their estimated time of arrival
