With local warehousing, SharedChain is ideal for same day delivery, creating a local e-Commerce Marketplace without the high costs and risks of long distance just in time delivery. Faster, lower cost same day delivery than Amazon.
SharedChain Integrated Supply Chain and Blockchain
SharedChain is a “Shared, Open, Virtually Integrated, Optimized, Low Cost, Supply Chain” that also leverages blockchain technology to provide an accessible, secure database with automated billing and counterfeit goods protection that enables small suppliers and retailers to assemble an integrated supply chain to compete successfully against Walmart. With local warehousing, SharedChain is particularly ideal for same day delivery, creating a local e-Commerce Marketplace without the high costs and risks of long distance just in time delivery.
The unique SharedChain supply chain system removes most of the cost disadvantages small retailers face in competing against Walmart. As value chain analysis available upon request shows, small retailers today face about a 16% cost disadvantage relative to Walmart. SharedChain reduces this to a 7% cost disadvantage—and gives suppliers and retailers in our system a cost advantage in same day home delivery since SharedChain.
Affordable Same Day Pickup or Home Delivery
By serving as a customer pick up center for the SharedChain system, small retailers can beat Walmart, with both revenues from providing the pickup service, and additional sales from customers who stop in for the order pickup. SharedChain helps small retailers develop an online e-retail store that lists both their on the shelve products and other available products in the local market area they want to promote for sale and pickup in their store, or, for a small additional fee, home delivery. Even the smallest retailer can offer a bigger array of products than Walmart/Amazon at comparable/lower prices, with same day delivery or pickup.
Sourcing from local inventory in local warehouses in SharedChain system, with shared, mixed load local delivery, is far less expensive than just in time delivery from manufacturers with long distance, rush shipping--and entails far less risk.
A better “Locally sourced, Shared e-Commerce Marketplace” than Amazon or eBay enabling lower cost same day delivery
SharedChain offers a better, eBay-like e-marketplace. Transporting train and truckload product reusable containers to warehouses is both less expensive and better for our environment than air delivery of individually cardboard wrapped products. Since based on goods available in local warehouses, not goods air and rush shipped from far away, lower cost delivery is available, within a day of order. SharedChain also uses mixed load local transportation to cut costs. The system is more profitable for retailers, less expensive for consumers, and far less wasteful of both packaging and energy.
The use of local warehousing versus long distance, just in time delivery, yields lower supply chain costs for small retailers. When it comes to same day delivery, the SharedChain system is the best—lower in cost than Amazon and eBay for same day home delivery, and superior to Walmart with far more pick up options, wider range of products, and home delivery option.
