Techniques described herein provide innovation directed to directing traffic through a distributed network. Packets can be at a first node that is directed to a recipient in which a location of the recipient is unknown. The recipient can be determined to be a member of the distributed network based on information within a distributed ledger stored locally on the first node. The location of the recipient can be determined to be within a geographical region based on a transaction recorded by the distributed ledger. Based on determining that a second node is within the geographical region, a tunnel can be generated from the first node to the second node in order to send the packets to the second node. Based on the geographical region being less than a threshold area, the packets can be sent to localized recipients in which the packets are encrypted based on a public key registered in the distributed network. Previously available blockchain systems do not employ abilities to track products beyond mere custody information.
