QUASA — is a decentralized system which involves a blockchain and consists of several smart-contracts in the perimeter of the block chain and its own crypto currency. Such an approach takes the development of logistic technologies to a completely new level and ensures total security and privacy in the whole supply chain.
QUASA — is a platform that brings together owners and cargo operators. Our goal is to create a platform that provides access to cargo transportation using innovative solutions based on blockchain technology and helps manage the supply chain through all available means of transportation.
For the launch of the project we have selected the Russian logistics market due to the following particular features:
- Market volume.
- Absence of special licensing.
- Developed IT infrastructure.
- Close partnership.
- Legal status of crypto currencies.
There is no dispute about the success of such services like Uber, Gett, or Lyft, and their capitalization is rapidly growing. However, the logistic services market is five to ten times bigger than the taxi market.
PROBLEMS & SOLUTIONS
Problem of trust
Risk of the insolvency of the cargo owner
Risk of hidden damages
Risk of tax evasion
Problem of information barriers and high prices
Introduction of the whole cargo shipping cycle into the functions of a single application will help QUASA
Use of the platform by cargo owner
Solution for carriers and shipping agents.
With the development of the service the opportunities for its partners are going to grow as well. The service will create:
unique environment for the development of the companies and their competition
trust-based relations between partners and clients, since the service sets standards in the whole supply chain
transparency, due to general access to the rating based on the smart-contracts fulfilled by the companies
opportunity to penetrate new markets, since access to such markets is not limited by information or financial barriers, thanks to transparency
Consulting services and the provision of a tested business process model and tools for its implementation.
Solution for the market
Solution for the problem of lacking standards and, consequently, for the problem of cumbersome paperwork
Increased shipping speed due to process optimization and competitive environment of the service
Improved availability of insurance and broker services
Increased opportunities for efficient outsourcing
Safe transportation. As soon as the client selects and confirms his transport contract, QUASA initiates a smart-contract with all the participants of the transportation and with the insurance company. The client’s digital money is credited directly to the smart-contract which manages the means of transportation. The smart-contract informs all the participants and starts controlling the fulfillment of the transportation
Transport services sales. The carrier informs QUASA about the location of the unloaded vehicle. This service includes the transportation by the carrier and creates a proposal for the contract or for the participation to the auction for the shipping contract initiation
Online cargo monitoring. In QUASA interface the GPS tracking data and the data on technical status of the loading are automatically saved in the smart-contract storage
Guaranteed payment for services and efficient paperwork. The carrier terminates the transportation of the goods and transfers them to the cargo owner or the next carrier. The cargo receiver makes an electronic mark about the assumption of the responsibility for the goods. Upon receiving this mark, the smart-contract performs a money settlement with the carrier. The smart-contract registers and provides the cargo owner’s documents signed in the digital form.
