Environmental Impact

The use of Linear programming, big-data analysis and algorithms will result in higher efficiency of shipping through reduced ballast run and voyage optimization. SHIPNEXT algorithms can also help increase the utilization of Ship's cargo intake, thus optimizing supply chain and reducing emission.

Blockchain technology

SHIPNEXT is building an ecosystem to enable secure, seamless and reliable transactions between the Industry participants on basis of interconnectivity and with the help of Smart Contracts. SHIPNEXT solution cam be integrated into Blockchain using Hyperledger Fabric, R3 or other technology.

Decentralized distributed ledger is the intangible digital platform that can be only addressed through a front-end application that structures the queries and results obtained from the ledger.

This application will allow industry players and service providers to become integrated into the system. For example, if there is an insurance company that wants to provide coverage for either cargo or a ship, we will integrate our APIs, so that a player seeking insurance coverage would be able to use insurance services through our application.

Open API platforms have proven to be more competitive in the long term and lead to larger and more diverse ecosystems. SHIPNEXT application layer will provide a user friendly and easy to use front-end interface to shipping industry players.

It will be an open marketplace connecting Shippers and Carriers, where users will perform input transaction and get calculation results in a familiar and robust way.
