3Open Labs and RoadLaunch announce new industry alliance and Pilot Program
New Transportation and Logistics Technology Hub in Halton Region brings world class capabilities in Transformative Technologies to Canadian organizations
3Open Labs and local IoT logistics tech company RoadLaunch to begin new Pilot Program in Halton Region.
“By teaming up with RoadLaunch we look forward to helping to bring the power of IoT, AI and Block Chain to organizations throughout Halton Region and the GTA to help drive competitive advantage and operational efficiencies”, said Craig Stark, Executive Director of 3Open Labs. “It’s disrupt or be disrupted in the global markets and Canadian companies are slow to adopt these innovations.”
3Open Labs, which is currently located at the centre of Ontario’s Innovation Corridor in Milton has been working to build partnerships and expertise in IoT, AI and Blockchain innovations within the community since 2017. This new alliance will mark the launch of a sector specific program in Transportation and Logistics.
With RoadLaunch, the orchestration of permissions-based data and smart contracts exchange throughout the supply chain will provide leading real-time collaboration with clients’ suppliers including approval processes, supply chain finance for procurement, and integrated logistics services from warehouse to delivery including ground and air freight, “said Cory Skinner, Founder and CEO RoadLaunch. With IoT enabled Blockchain, we can add a level of real-time end-to-end digitalized capacity, visibility and tracking, all trusted on one transparent, immutable and secure Blockchain.”
“With the pilot program, we can help minimize the learning curve with real world experience from major markets such as Taipei, Hong Kong and Singapore” says Stark, “where they are years ahead with implementations in IoT in transportation”.
The initiative will begin with a series of Discovery Days sessions, developed for freight and logistics companies in the 401 corridor. Customers will get a high-level understanding of all the moving pieces, new business strategies and operational savings they can achieve through the use of RoadLaunch’s tracking and blockchain technologies. Offerings will also include customized workshops and assistance with the launch of individual pilot projects for companies interested in discovering how IoT and related technologies can benefit them.
The new Pilot Program will help selected customers develop a strategic road map to enable seamless integration for the transportation and logistics industries, where it’s typically hard to compete in for smaller freight companies.
