Now the product will be shipped to the Distributor. As soon the product is shipped its ownership in the blockchain network will be transferred. Now even the creator of the product i.e companies cannot manufacture the product.

  2. Transfer the Records to Distributor and then to retailers

    The manufacturer will transfer the product to the distributor when the product is shipped. When the distributor ships the product to a retailer, the ownership of the tire is transferred to the retailer.

  3. When User Purchase the Product, he will scan the product in Blockchain App

    When a user goes to purchase the tire, he will scan the id of the product and the blockchain application will tell him the product is original. It will confirm that the product is coming to the right owner. If the retailer is selling a duplicate product, the blockchain application will show that the product was never manufactured. It may say that the product was already sold. whatever the reason you will be saved.
