Our Mission

Connected Industry

The logistic market is highly fragmented. A common infrastructure is needed to align the different protagonists and new services in a holistic process. Only that way, we'll achieve Swarm Logistics - fully connected, smart & green!

 
 

Common Protocol

The decentralised transaction protocol +D acts as value added glue between blockchain and application layer. Interoperability and data reliability is key for smooth data exchange and automation across the ecosystem.

Member Power

+D is being developed by industry partners, service providers and public authorities alike. Common pilot projects amongst the diverse members of the initiative provide the basis for growth of this shared infrastructure. 

+D Pilot

In a first pilot project, +D asked: “How can the conditions of the transport & insurance contract (e.g. required quality of the goods) be used to automatically trigger actions such as payments and ratings?”. The actual job involved a transport of temperature-controlled chemicals.

 

Process & Partner Ecosystem

At +D we believe that the contracts between different protagonists contain all information needed to connect and automate the complex processes of the widely fragmented logistics ecosystem. Therefore, all common use cases aim at a 3-phase process of digital contracting, involving the partners in one or several roles shown in the following overview.
