BLOCKFOX enables regional integration in Africa by reducing transport cost & secures risk.

Ridden with inefficiencies, the global Transport & Logistics industry is laden with the need for intermediaries, primarily as a result of legacy systems still being operated by shippers & carriers to procure or offer services. The information flow in international trade is complex, involves many parties & is documentation heavy stifling the growth potential, profits & transparency.

Alongside our top-tier brand alliance we could eliminate an entire layer of complexity for global supply chain. Via BLOCKfox we intend to do exactly that Driving trade forward; unlocking barriers; growing inclusive economies.

The BLOCKfox, supported by the Ethereum network, drives innovation through connecting various pivotal barriers of trade all from within the FOX ecosystem Leveraging blockchain technology within a global alliance network.

  • Matching: Connecting shippers & carriers by algorithms that match deck space & cargo as well as listing & bidding for trips on the exchange.
  • Smart Contracts: On-Demand (short-term) agreement initiated between a carrier & a shipper will be recorded & verified by the platform.
  • Smart Freight Insurance: Given our disruptive SureFOX instant insurance solution we manage complete information about insured cargo true value, departure/arrival locations, & type which is instantly cross-checked & verified, reducing fraud, alerting discrepancy & predicting risk exposure. This intuitively amends premiums to reflect true risk.
  • Smart Bills Lading: Each issuance & transfer of B/L documents can be underpinned by an smart contract which, according to the verification of cargo ownership information, proof of payment, & other pre-determined criteria, will approve or deny the B/L issuance/transfer.
  • Fox Eco System & Protocol: The decentralised nature of this ecosystem & protocol rules, changed or removed through regular voting campaigns protects integrity.
  • Through BLOCKfox we are able to drive the new era of transformation enabling empowerment of the continent through open trade markets by ease of simpler logistics.
  • Faster & leaner logistics for Africa & global trade Improving transparency & traceability in supply chain.

Our passion is to save the planet whilst ensuring growth. IMPACT CAPITALISTS! CARBONfox, is the a smart emissions calculator for enterprises, aimed to create carbon credits for opting toward more CO2 efficient modes, routes & processes. This not only reduces carbon tax penalties by earning a potential credit & asset, but most importantly we help organizations, by using technology, reduce their carbon impact on the planet, rebuilding a cleaner tomorrow, for future generations.

Did You Know?

The cost of “empty wasted space” on assets such as trucks, trains & sea-vessels is estimated at ±$2 trillion per annum, & emits ±0,5bn tonnes of wasted carbon emissions. Not only does that equate to the total GDP of Switzerland, Netherlands & Belgium combined, but also requires the sequestration of ±45million hectare forest p.a. Perspective: the emissions wasted by 1 industry would require us to plant 1/10th of the amazon (±350m hectares remain) each year to absorb the emissions from unused space.

How do we do it?

Our platform has established a smart algorithm that measures your enterprises carbon footprint status quo through series of formulations that converts all the various greenhouse emissions into an equivalent impact from Carbon dioxide, the primary greenhouse gas. Your footprint value is returned in "tonne“ of carbon dioxide equivalent. We then propose alternative options to calculate the saving if you change your ways.

How do we differ?

We’re logistics & freight focused! Our simple three step process allows you to measure your organisations current impact, start immediate reductions, & put forward strategies to allow further reduction through high carbon offset strategies for your fleet management. Looking to make a difference today, for all tomorrow’s? Want to show you care for the environment & communities across the World by Carbon Offsetting? Let us help get you started.
