About Us

Join us for an enlightening exploration into blockchain, AI, and IoE and learn how they will synergize each other and industries at large.

At XChain2, you will discover how these revolutionary technologies have solved real-world problems in logistics and meet subject matter experts who will be showcasing their pilot projects as well as the value they added. More importantly, you will learn how to incorporate blockchain, AI, and IoE into your business practices and how they are transforming supply chains.

Supply chain blockchain is taking root at a rapid clip. Emerging today are the components needed to create robust supply chain blockchain networks. However, exponential change will truly start to take shape through the integration of blockchain with other innovative technologies like AI and IoE. Technological intersections like these have led to the creation of major multinational corporations.

The collision of cutting-edge solutions like blockchain, AI, and IoE will help the supply chain and logistics market address key issues as well as costly problems by providing a deeper understanding of what and how supply chain and logistics processes can be optimized.
