Since the introduction of blockchain over a decade ago, many industries and industrial sectors are ex- ploring the potentials of the technology. In line with the trend, logistics sector is not an exception and is investigation various dynamics associated with the implementation of the technology. This study fo- cuses on the linking between the capabilities of blockchain technology and trust, privacy and transpar- ency. In order to explore dynamics of the linkage, the study used case study as a method for the inquiry. These have been common issues in logistics which the existing information solutions are unable in re- solving to a greater extent.. The results shows that blockchain technology has the capability to build trust among unknown industry players while maintaining a sufficient level of privacy and transparency at the same time.
