SHIPNEXT - SEARATES Strategic Alliance
Several Shipping and Transport related Marketplaces join hands to launch a unique, all included, intermodal transportation and Supply Chain Ecosystem. SHIPNEXT for dry- and wet-bulk, heavy and oversized cargo as well as SEARATES for containerized/multimodal transport and AIRRATES for air shipments.
The name of the new Supply Chain Ecosystem is not yet announced, but this will, indeed, create a unique real-time solution to ship any cargo regardless of type, size or packing.
SHIPNEXT has been long involved with transforming the most conservative and traditional sector of the transportation industry - the shipping sector - with over 2000 new Cargo/Freight requests each day and about 22.000 ship positions at any given moment. SEARATES in its turn is the oldest resource dedicated to online logistics, since 2005, which today hits top 100k on Alexa ranking and is in top-5 websites in the world respect container shipping, having over 20 000 visitors every day, over 40 000 registered carriers and over 250 000 shippers, using logistics solutions, submitting online bookings and delivering cargo from A to B in a new smart & easy way (which now expands to Air, Road and Rail with a certain targeting).
And now, as the Shipping Marketplaces of both SEARATES and SHIPNEXT as launched, and the electronic Bill of Lading solution is built, the teams are involved in building a Smart Contract on IBM's Hyperledger Fabric as the world's most unique "all in" solution for transportation.
Similar to Google Maps, it will be able to provide a real-time solution for delivery of any type of cargo, anywhere in the world, with various modes of transport.
SHIPNEXT is launching a security token ICO to to invite partners into the future network and ecosystem.
