In recent years, technologies such as Blockchain are revolutionizing our society at an exponential speed. In just 10 years, Blockchain went from being essentially what supports cryptocurrency transactions to technology with diverse applications for countless businesses. Naturally, the Supply chain and Logistics industries have developed use-cases solving intricate issues that companies have been facing.

 
Neurored is the leader in delivering real production environments of Blockchain technologies for Global Trade, leveraging the unique combination of the leading cloud platform – Force.com and the leading permitted blockchain technology – Hyperledger Fabric. Our solutions (described below) enable global trading partners to operate with a substantial level of trust, while simultaneously avoiding commercial fraud exposure that is unavoidable in equivalent paper-based processes or unsecured digitized processes.

COMMODITIES TOKENIZATION (DIGITAL ASSETS)

By taking advantage of Hyperledger Fabric, Neurored’s platform allows tokenizing commodities by leveraging the security that Blockchain provides. Indeed, trading companies can incorporate key documents to Neurored’s secure Hyperledger, saving them both a great amount of time and money by exchanging a trustworthy proof of ownership.

For instance, one application involves the tokenization of Negotiable Warehouse Receipts (WR) issued by authorized warehouses. This process, therefore, accelerates the trading of commodities stored in a warehouse, without requiring any movement of the assets themselves. Digitization of WR encourages trading partners to make secure transactions (WR endorsements) of commodities stored in warehouses and other storage facilities such as silos. Trust between trading partners is based on the digital process and the technology itself, which makes actual commercial fraud impossible. In a similar way, Bill of Ladings (BOL) issued by Break Bulk Shipping Lines can be tokenized to accelerate trade of commodities in transit on vessels.

SECURE MARKETPLACES

Neurored also develops custom marketplaces for its customers in which sellers and buyers can trade commodities through the exchange of these tokens. Our Blockchain ledger of published prices (sale and purchase prices), availabilities, quality parameters, schedules, and orders, encourages trading partners of commodities marketplaces to trade in a safer way.

In addition, our marketplaces seamlessly enable demand and supply of products to meet by agreeing on terms such as price, availability, and quality. By requesting the contribution of a trustworthy third party (e.g. inspection service, warehouse management service etc.) to certify the agreed-upon conditions, the exchange of goods can be carried out in a reliable and unbiased manner.

SECURE FACTORING

Neurored has also built a Blockchain ledger of trade documents (Order, Invoice, BOL…) and related approval processes which enables traders to provide financial institutions more trust over their commercial operations in order to obtain better discount rates for their factoring operations.

At Neurored we have an indefatigable desire to innovate and bring organizations involved in Global Trade the tools allowing them to do business in a highly cost-efficient and sustainable way, as well as gain a competitive advantage by implementing state of the art technologies. Blending blockchain into our cloud platform, thereby enabling easy navigation between the physical and digital dimensions of a business, is just one of the innovations we have conceived.

Innovative Freight Forwarders are now providing comprehensive trade finance solutions to their customers, by taking advantage of the Neurored Trade Finance BlockChain.

Importers and Exporters now have an alternate mechanism to finance their trading operations. Rather than time-consuming, traditional trade financing provided by banks, trade is now being financed by Freight Forwarders, enabled by this innovative Neurored technology.

Freight Forwarder customers will get Credit Lines to finance their trading activity and automate payments directly from their newly established Credit Line.

The Neurored Trade Finance BlockChain solution takes simultaneous advantage of well-aligned conjunction of logistics and technology services, which we describe below:

  • Customers leveraging Freight Forwarder logistics services can negotiate more favorable incoterms for their counterparties. Importers will be able to buy FOB from their suppliers, which will clearly open the scope of suppliers who agree with these terms. Exporters will be able to sell CIF to their customers, which will also open the scope of buyers who agree with these terms.
  • Leveraging Neurored integration with the Ebury Fintech Platform for Import-Export finance and B2B Cross Border Payments, Freight Forwarder customers will get Credit Lines to finance their trading activity and automate payments directly from their newly established Credit Line.
  • Leveraging the combination of the Neurored Supply Chain Network and BlockChain technologies unifies all supply chain participants (Supplier, Freight Forwarder, Buyer, Inspection Entity, etc), enabling each to upload their respectively required documents into the BlockChain, ensuring all commercial terms have been addressed.

This transparency leads to Suppliers being paid directly from Ebury Credit Lines when commercial terms have been met and registered in the Blockchain.

The Neurored Trade Finance Solution has many advantages over the traditional Letter of Credit, which we explain below:

  • A Letter of Credit creates trust through the banks of seller/buyer counterparties. The banks are the participants who review all of the documentation to make sure commercial terms have already been addressed before processing any payment. This is heavily intensive, manual paperwork and consequently has a high cost.
  • The Neurored Trade Finance Solution creates trust thanks to a combination of technologies provided by Neurored and greater logistics capacity provided by Freight Forwarders. The final result is a process with less cost, where documents are uploaded and reviewed by all participants of the supply chain, keeping track on the BlockChain of all the documents and approval process required before doing a payment. Simultaneously and very important to note, the process also has the added advantage of achieving lower freight costs when counterparts charge you for them.
