The company plans to use blockchain to help the aviation industry track and trace “kits” throughout the delivery process. They will also build solutions that help hardware vendors in the telecom industry gain better visibility in the supply chain. The healthcare industry will be able to use Tech Mahindra’s blockchain solution to track and identify counterfeit medical products, including personal protective equipment kits, face masks, and sanitizers, says Cointelegraph.

For Tech Mahindra, this is not the first time they consider integrating blockchain technology into its project. In fact, with its goal to help artists from the media and entertainment industry track their revenue, royalty payments, and digital rights, the company has recently launched its blockchain-based digital contracts and rights platform built on top of IBM’s blockchain.
