Blockchain in construction logistics: state-of-art, constructability, and the advent of a new digital business model in Sweden
Paper i proceeding, 2019

Research on blockchain technology implementation within civil engineering has mainly focused on smart contracts, and interfaces with information systems. However, the use of blockchain for the integration of the material and economic flows within construction supply chain – thus creating a new business model – to enhance a construction project’s production, logistics management, and constructability, has not been investigated. In this paper, this shortage is documented through a comprehensive literature review. Then, the potential of Swedish independent third-party logistics consultants as a fertile ground for such a business model, is examined. Finally, conclusions about the pursuance of this potential paradigm shift are drawn.
