Few things in retail has benefitted businesses and customers alike as much as the move from the physical to the online space.
From the customers point of view, there are many benefits. First of all, you no longer have to be disappointed when you go to a store just to discover that they are out of the item you were looking for. Secondly, you have access to a much wider range of different retailers than there could ever be room for on a high street.
From the point of view of the retailers themselves, there are also numerous benefits associated with being online. First of all, they do not have to shell out enormous sums of money to rent a physical space at a central location. Secondly, they also do not need to pay staff to be present at the location to help customers.
All of these benefits undoubtedly save everyone a lot of time, energy, and money. It is a win-win situation. But items ordered online need to be delivered, and not all parcel delivery services are created equal. Parcels are delayed, some get damaged in transit, and the cost of delivery can sometimes negate the savings made form shopping online.
These are the issues Triwer, a Norwegian ICO, wants to challenge and remedy with their new platform.
What is Triwer?
Triwer is an online platform based on blockchain technology. Right off the bat, this means that all the benefits associated with the blockchain are to be found on Triwer: namely the anonymity, the decentralisation, and the data protection.
Triwer offers all the features and benefits any parcel delivery service offers their clients. This includes being able to specify the location the item should be delivered to, live tracking of the delivery in transit, and customer service to help you out in case anything goes wrong. But there is more to the story than that.
Because Triwer uses Ethereum’s smart contract technology, users will be able to enjoy full transparency, flexibility, and control over their shipment. The “if-then” concept of smart contracts ensures that funds for the delivery are not released until the package has been successfully delivered.
What are the benefits?
There are a number of other benefits associated with using Triwer in addition to the ones stated above. All deliveries are recorded on the blockchain, so if anything goes wrong, it can always be traced back. In addition, all parcels will be delivered by professional drivers who have lengthy experience in their respective markets.
Customers can also rest assured that even if the parcel should be damaged during transit, all deliveries are 100% insured by Triwer. Customers can also enjoy round the clock customer service in case they have any questions regarding their delivery or want to make any changes.
Finally, Triwer cares about the environment, are doing their utmost to reduce their carbon footprint. Customers can also do their own bit by requesting that their parcel is delivered paperless.
How do the tokens work?
Triwer will be using their own TRW tokens as the native currency on their platform. This means that all deliveries are paid for in TRW tokens, which can be purchased for fiat money or other legitimate cryptocurrencies. Investors are also able to purchase TRW tokens during the ICO, which kicks off in less than a week.
