DISRUPTING TRANSPORT  &  LOGISTICS
ON THE  BLOCKCHAIN
JOIN US IN CREATING THE NEXT EVOLUTION OF LOGISTICS
POWERING THE GLOBAL ECONOMY
Moving products from one place to another is the figurative backbone that supports our entire modern civilization. To understand the scale of the shipping & logistics market, here are some quick industry facts and figures.
The market's global value was $8.1 trillion in 2015, and is expected to grow to $15.5 trillion by 2023, making it one of the largest industries on the planet.
In the United States, freight and logistics spend in 2015 totaled $1.48 trillion, nearly 10% of the country's GDP.
55 billion tons of freight was transported in 2015, with expected growth to 92 billion tons by 2024.
INTRODUCING
SHIPCHAIN

Imagine a fully integrated system across the entire supply chain, from the moment a shipment leaves the factory, to the final delivery on the customer's doorstep; federated in trustless, transparent blockchain contracts. This is ShipChain.

The ShipChain platform is based on a simple, yet powerful solution called "Track and Trace."

Our ecosystem will encompass all methods of freight, and will include an open API architecture that can integrate with existing freight management software.

THE LOGISTICS PLATFORM OF THE FUTURE
FROM POOR TRACKING
Tracking across multiple carriers is extremely fractured, and tracking provisions vary between modes of transportation.
TO END-TO-END TRACK & TRACE
The ShipChain platform allows for unified tracking across the entire supply chain, between all carriers.
FROM NO ACCOUNTABILITY
The FBI estimates that cargo theft causes an annual loss within the United States of approximately $30 billion per year (and rising), with an average theft value of $190,000.
TO INCENTIVIZED RESPONSIBILITY
Operators are rewarded for efficient transport routes, and for delivering goods on time. Theft is reduced by a better tracking system.
FROM MIDDLEMAN MARKUP
Brokers act as gatekeepers to the industry, typically charging a significant premium, sometimes up to 50%.
TO PLATFORM PARITY
Brokers are no longer required, but can be used when necessary. Smaller carriers can operate independently.
FROM FRACTURED COMMUNICATION
Across the freight industry, transparency is a well documented problem. Carriers don't typically communicate with each other.
TO FULL VISIBILITY
Every step of the supply chain process is documented and recorded on either our main blockchain or our sidechain, creating full transparency and ease of communication.
TRACKING & TRANSPARENCY
The ShipChain platform unifies shipment tracking on the Ethereum blockchain, using a sidechain to track individual encrypted geographic waypoints across each smart contract. With this system, the meaning of each cryptographic waypoint is only accessible for interpretation by the parties involved in the shipment itself. This gives shippers more visibility across their supply chain, and allows carriers to communicate with ease.

Information about loads, geo waypoints, and other basic information is recorded and publicly validated within the sidechain. On the shipment's delivery and confirmation, the contract is completed and stored on the main blockchain.

TOKEN GENERATION EVENT & UTILITY
The ShipChain Web platform allows users to pay either directly in tokens they hold, or purchase tokens from ShipChain for booking freight (accepting USD, EUR or cryptocurrency payment for accessibility and ease of use.) Freight shipments can be paid using our ERC20 SHIP Token, and settled in tokens on our platform.

We have run a Token Generation Event, or "TGE," to sell an initial supply of our tokens, jumpstart the ShipChain economy, and supplement our funding so we can continue to deliver the best product possible. Funds secured from the TGE will be allocated as shown in the visual below. There is a fixed supply of 500 million SHIP tokens that will ever exist. Not all tokens will be in circulation to start.
token-allocation
Note that our plan includes a retainer of 13% of the total supply of tokens to be distributed over five or more years as incentives for ecologically responsible driving.
