Chris Burruss, former president of the Blockchain in Transport Alliance, has been named vice president of transportation relations at the blockchain logistics platform provider dexFreight.
“Chris Burruss is a firm believer in the importance of technology in transportation, which is critical to the adoption of blockchain in the industry,” said Rajat Rajbhandari, CEO and co-founder of dexFreight. “His understanding of blockchain’s potential and the decades of experience in the U.S. trucking industry that he brings to dexFreight will be instrumental in our ongoing success.”
Prior to his role at BiTA, Burruss served for over ten years as the president of the Truckload Carriers Association and has close to two decades of transportation experience.
Other previously held positions include president of the Tennessee Trucking Association, and vice president of the Missouri Trucking Association.
“After building the infrastructure of BiTA and ramping up its standards development process, I wanted to participate in the actual commercial realization of blockchain technology,” said Burruss. “Marrying my experience in the supply chain with dexFreight's platform moves the needle closer to blockchain reaching its intended potential to create greater efficiency in the movement of goods.”
