Storage lockers leverage on tested and proven user authentication technology like such as Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tagging, biometrics and smart locks, to securely verify the identities of the storage users. The Singapore SME develops software based on blockchain technology and applies it to solve challenges related to last mile logistics.

Potential Applications

For e-commerce and logistics enterprises, last mile delivery poses many challenges and inconveniences. In particular, for the door to door last-mile deliveries when recipients not at home to receive their goods. This causes additional logistics and inconvenience for both customers and logistics enterprises. A smart storage solution addresses this problem by providing smart lockers near destination to hold the delivery items for recipients to retrieve at a later time.

The smart locker platform is built on a secure blockchain implementation. This platform provides enhanced secure digital transactions allowing different delivery companies and locker operators and users to complete the last-mile delivery securely, conveniently.
