Since the beginning of human civilization, people are involved in shipping goods. Shipment involves different stages, from source to destination; a consignment goes to different places before getting delivered. At every stage, they verify the details of the shipment & save it in their database. But due to an increase in cyber-attacks, these details get leaked & are misused. Also QR codes that were printed on the shipment could be damaged easily. In this paper, we use RFID instead of QR codes to save shipment details, use GPS to track the shipment, and all the data is stored in a blockchain. This ensures high-level security & prevents hacking. The results we got were highly satisfactory. Further modification in the system will make it more efficient & robust.
