Emergency logistics are an important buttress for emergency responses, and they have played an important role in the efforts to control the current COVID-19 pandemic. Blockchain technology can be applied in many areas of emergency logistics to increase their efficiency, reliability, and smartization, thereby improving emergency logistics infrastructure and aiding epidemic control and management efforts. This study discusses the current use and expected benefits of applying blockchain technology to emergency logistics for epidemic prevention materials in terms of efficiency guarantees, trust management, and smartization. To this end, the assurance processes, trust mechanisms, and operational characteristics of emergency logistics operations were analyzed in technical and practical terms by using technical demonstrations and case studies. Suggestions were also provided based on the realities of current efforts to control the COVID-19 pandemic. This is expected to promote the innovative application of blockchain technology in emergency logistics, thereby enhancing the efficiency guarantees, trust management, and smartization in these operations.
