We have patented a supply chain system to eliminate modern slavery in supply chains. Digital certificates are used to authenticate worker identity for banking. Smallholder farmers are then uniquely linked with four-foot cubic "modules" (pallets with walls) to transport their product. These modules can be RFID-tracked continuously to verify product delivery and electronic payment is made directly and immediately. This removes worker vulnerability and verifies their product's movement end-to-end.
