But first, what are digital handshakes: Digital handshakes represent a paradigm shift in supply chain collaboration, replacing traditional paper-based contracts with secure, digital agreements. These agreements, facilitated by the NxtPort platform, enable supply chain partners to formalize their relationships, exchange critical information, and establish clear terms and conditions for collaboration and data sharing.

Key Features and Benefits:
