Shipnext Supply Chain Ecosystem
Shipnext has two use cases of Blockchain technology, as part of its aim to create a SupplyChain ecosystem. Through digitalisation of Freight matching, and data processing, Shipnext takes both contracting parties, the Shipper and the Carrier, into a Contractual relationship – Charter (Contract of Carriage). The use of the Platform allows to provide a time stamp, a proof of ownership of the Cargo and the Ship, and transfer this contract into a Smart Contract using DLT technology and interconnectivity between multiple signatories and digital data-flows. Blockchain is further used in creating the Ecosystem through the use of nodes that would serve a dual purpose, both providing data-security as well as a cross-verification of true data, to be further used in the optimisation model and the data-processing algorithms.
