LaneAxis is trying to solve the problem because of which, since decades, the freight industry has been unable to compete with technology – often falling far behind. It’s a shocking truth, considering that freight is the backbone of the global economy, generating more than $800 billion in annual sales in the US alone.
By 2023, the global logistics sector is expected to generate over $15 trillion. Freight management is a complex juggling action involving many moving parts consisting of books, contracts, multiple third parties and constant personal interaction.
The advent of blockchain technology can – and will almost certainly – bring freight logistics to the cutting-edge of technology and transform a sector in need of much change. The chaos, the deception and the inefficiency that have been haunting the industry for a long time will soon come to an end thanks to Blockchain.
LaneAxis, a 6-year SaaS-based freight management company, has positioned itself to lead the company into this exciting new era. The LaneAxis Blockchain platform will create the industry-wide adoption of protocols that enable users to verify shipping transactions and track critical goals throughout the supply chain. In the process, expensive foreign freight brokers are being replaced by the establishment of a global freight forwarder network.
The key to building this global logistics community is the development of the LaneAxis Driver Social Network (DSN), which establishes LaneAxis as a pioneer in the development of standardized supply chain processes at Blockchain.
By paying special attention to drivers’ needs, not just relying on enterprise-class systems, the DSN will create a social network effect that will result in broad adoption of the platform across the industry.
Ultimately, the purpose of the Driver Social Community is to quickly build a large driver network so that freight forwarders will quickly get carriers into their network,
Says Rick Burnett, CEO, and founder of LaneAxis.
The app will be cool, easy to use and full of advantages that drivers like to share. The DSN connects truckers for freight, discounts, and fun.
The goal of LaneAxis is to win 4 million + drivers with access to 2 million cargos per day. The real value lies in linking the consignment community directly to the massive community of drivers, which consists mainly of small, independent carriers with six or fewer trucks.
With the expansion of our carrier and shipper communities, both sides are finally integrated into a virtual transport ecosystem,
Consignor and driver will deal directly with each other, benefit each other and never have a reason to use another trucking platform. This will be the industry’s first true global transport community.
Truckers will use the AXIS token to get discounts on things like food, petrol, and tires, get real-time traffic and weather conditions and enjoy other features designed exclusively for the driver. Real-time knowledge of drivers, load, drop-off and pick-up points, all captured in the blockchain’s decentralized ledger, will provide insights into the industry that were previously unreachable.
All of these features are supported by the AXIS token of the platform, which is gaining in value as it grows and grows in acceptance. In turn, if everyone uses the token within the LaneAxis ecosystem, it will generate massive amounts of data and enable GPS-based load-balancing that can be used globally.
Burnett – a 20-year-old truck and logistics software veteran and former co-owner of the trucking company itself – understands that drivers are at the heart of the carrier industry and are largely ignored by data-centric logistics.
He believes that LaneAxis will set itself apart from all the other companies that implement Blockchain in their systems because the key to their DSN app will be the driver adoption, which in turn will attract other industry participants into the ecosystem.
With the trucking industry currently suffering from a lack of drivers, the unique social aspect that the LaneAxis DSN app offers to next-generation truckers may indeed be more accomplished. Not only does the platform provide all the technological innovations that the freight industry needs to operate efficiently today, but also drivers who are isolated and often absent for weeks at a time, with colleagues and all other stakeholders in the logistics chain.
LaneAxis will launch the first stage of its full public token sale on September 21st. Pre-sale is now running with attractive bonus incentives to attract more buyers. The sale has already surpassed its $2 million soft caps.
