Incorporated in March 2022, BITA Standards Council (BSC) is a member-driven, 501(c)(6) not-for-profit organization serving the transportation industry. Its mission is to produce, publish, and certify open-source standards to facilitate global commerce, initially with a focus on blockchain-enabled technologies in the transportation and logistics industries.
BSC membership is comprised primarily of leaders from freight, transportation, logistics and affiliated industries. Members share the common goal of driving the adoption of emerging technologies forward to create efficiencies in the supply chain for all. BSC accomplishes this by standardizing data formats on transport blockchain platforms to increase interoperability between and among platforms.
At its core, the ability of blockchain to reduce transactional costs, friction, and opacity will be based on the open exchange of information between parties. BSC seeks to establish common standards within the global delivery ecosystem and its membership will benefit from standards, references, frameworks and other guidance that illustrates the improvements.
Further, BSC is engaging in efforts to promote the broad acceptance and market adoption of blockchain applications/solutions and distributed ledger technology specifications on a global scale.
BITA Standards Council has its Operations Center located in Piscataway, NJ US.
