Letter from Laneaxis team



Every person reading this is affected by the supply chain - and by the inefficiencies crippling it. Look around your own home - virtually 100% of everything you see ended up on a truck at some point. While the Supply Chain is complicated, LaneAxis streamlines and simplifies it for key stakeholders with one overarching solution: Direct Shipper-to-Carrier connectivity, total network visibility, and blockchain security managed by the AXIS Token.


Self executing smart contracts remove friction from freight movements, allowing shippers and carriers to connect directly and move loads almost instantly. Artificial Intelligence identifies available capacity, quantifies the data, and notifies relevant parties - eliminating billions of empty truck miles per year utilizing AI-generated data reports throughout the transportation network. 


How important is a blockchain-powered Direct Network in filling empty trucks - particularly on return trips (known as “backhauls”)? 


For a bit of perspective, consider the airline industry. 


Imagine a flight filled with passengers arriving at its destination, but with zero passengers booked for the return flight. Ponder further a preposterous situation where airline employees would wander the streets surrounding the arrival airport trying to recruit passengers to fly back to the original destination to avoid an empty flight.


That preposterous situation is essentially reality in the trucking industry. Trucks arrive fully loaded at their destinations, but because no direct freight network exists - unlike the interconnected airline network - many trucks return “home” with empty trailers. How many? About ONE MILLION TRUCKS PER DAY - ADDING UP TO AN ESTIMATED 27 BILLION EMPTY MILES PER YEAR. These are colloquially known as “deadhead miles.” This is terrible for the industry, the economy, and the environment. It is untenable, inefficient, and inexcusable. 


Already live in the market, collecting revenue, and experiencing growth – the LaneAxis Direct Network creates a unified supply chain of manufacturers, suppliers, shippers, carriers, retailers and consumers collaborating on a secure, frictionless network.


Critically, we have partnered with Kairon Labs and LedgerLink, two heavyweights in the blockchain, tokenomics, and "market making" sectors. These firms are very selective on the clients they take on, and their expertise will accelerate our success.


We invite you to read through the information on this page closely - evaluate the market, the problems, our solutions, and our strategy.


Sincerely, 


-Team LaneAxis

The PROBLEM


Broker Model is Chaos. LaneAxis Model is Efficiency.

LaneAxis strives for a more efficient and transparent supply chain by exposing one of the industry’s biggest problems: the near-monopoly third-party brokers hold over the industry. The freight brokerage industry sells itself as a necessary component to smoothen out the supply chain. But logic dictates that brokers need a chaotic and fractured supply chain to justify their existence. Without chaos they would be rendered obsolete. LaneAxis rejects this business model. We strive for efficiency.

 

The global pandemic made it utterly clear that the supply chain isn’t ready for the demanding online environment. With the increasing demand, the expectations of end consumers also rose, demanding fast delivery without wanting to risk any loss of quality. Images of store shelves stripped bare of essentials such as toilet paper and cleaning supplies belied the fact that many of those products were in fact available and sitting in warehouses. But as the world saw, chaos consumed the supply chain. A direct, transparent freight network utilizing blockchain could have significantly mitigated this supply chain crisis by identifying available supply with available nearby carrier capacity. 

One of the many examples that illustrates the broken, unfair and outdated broker machine encompasses the fact that brokers routinely consume 40-70% commissions on freight movements, with those margins essentially pulled from the pockets of hard-working drivers. Even worse, freight brokerages – which are largely unregulated - are not required to reveal how much a shipper has paid them to haul a load. So carriers are kept in the financial dark. Apart from the fact that the broker machine is often hustling shippers, carriers and drivers out of money - their systems lack efficiency. Common problems are the lack of visibility into real-time capacity, the lack of direct connectivity, unforeseen detention times, empty truck miles, and many more, resulting in inefficient and skewed supply chain metrics. 

Despite the lack of transparency, efficiency and fairness, these third-party managed services continue to rake in billions in profits, reaching a gross total revenues of more than $213.5 billion in 2018, all while peeling profits away from their rightful recipients.


As LaneAxis has reported extensively, independent drivers have reached a stage of near-revolt against bad brokers.

The Solution


AI Combined with Blockchain Network Data Meets the Freight Industry 

The use of Artificial Intelligence fueled by blockchain-secured data will render some longstanding trucking terms obsolete. Truckload (FTL), Less-than-truckload (LTL), regional, and last mile will simply fall under the category of “Network Visibility.” Said visibility and all the benefits connected to this visibility will be made possible by combining modern technologies tracking deliveries and incentivizing drivers to share their live locations and routes via LaneAxis’ reward system. 


LaneAxis’ focus is on the persistent two-pronged problem, namely 1) connecting shippers directly to carriers and 2) managing the complicated process of a freight movement from A to Z - from contracts to insurance certificates to shipment documents - all the way to the final proof of delivery. Thus, providing an all-in-one system that eliminates brokers, enables shippers to find and connect to qualified carriers directly, and crucially manages and monitors all aspects of the freight movement right down to the consumer.

Carriers and Shippers can Connect via Desktop or Mobile

Apart from the potential benefit for the supply chain industry as a whole, LaneAxis’ goal is to put money back into the pockets of the people that it belongs to, namely shippers, carriers and drivers.

The Market


One Trillion Dollar U.S. Freight Trucking Industry Due for Global Expansion 

The targeted market consists of the U.S.-based freight trucking industry, but could be extended to the global cargo industry in the future. 

According to the American Trucking Associations’ (ATA) U.S. Freight Transportation Forecast, overall annual freight tonnage is expected to grow by a total of 36% between 2020 and 2031, with the amount of freight moved by trucks expected to grow 27% during that period.


In 2019, The U.S. freight trucking industry produced nearly $800 billion annual revenue and in 2020 the freight trucking market reached the $1 trillion benchmark. And the market will expand exponentially due to more domestic movements in the future. Even more, China, the world’s second largest economy, forecasts that the projected market size of their freight trucking industry would surpass the $1 trillion benchmark by 2027. 

What We Do


Leveraging AI, Blockchain and Network Solutions to Improve the Shipping Process 

FreightVISION and Network Management Portal

The LaneAxis platform provides shippers visibility to a filtered query carrier driver pool, allowing carriers drivers to receive direct invitation revenue alerts' in advance via network visibility. Once connected, loads are tracked in real-time, monitors truck capacity which allows drivers to pick up additional loads, and then sends electronic documentation to the shippers.

Carrier Dashboard connected to FreightVISION App monitors active and pending shipments

AXIS Token : a Multi-Purpose Utility Token

In the System, The AXIS token will serve as the central utility tool to enable all transactions within the LaneAxis blockchain ecosystem, as well as granting access to the vault of analytical business intelligence. The AXIS token fuels the LaneAxis platform by facilitating and securing business transactions between shippers and carriers. Functioning as an API access key, the AXIS token will serve a wide variety of purposes, including accessing data on the blockchain, initiating transactions and contracts, and rewarding system participants - to name just a few.


Ultimately, the AXIS Token will also supplant traditional payment processors for final settlement between Shippers and Carriers - eliminating the payment processing fees these platforms charge.

Blockchain technology meets LaneAxis and vice versa


The LaneAxis Blockchain solution solves the costly, complex, and time-consuming problems that have so far been beyond the individual companies’ ability to implement. Documents such as insurance certificates are verified, securely stored, and monitored for renewal dates. Every shipment is built on self-executing smart contracts, with all business rules and requirements coded into the contract and securely nested into LaneAxis’ immutable ledger. So, if the shipper changes its business rules or contract requirements, that information is automatically dispersed to the carrier network. Carriers would then be required to comply with the new rules or automatically be excluded from future contract opportunities until such conditions are met. All that is needed is a common foundation across the industry that will allow general implementation of LaneAxis’ tailored App. The LaneAxis blockchain will be built on the Ethereum blockchain, but critically can be “paired” to other existing blockchain platforms.

How We Are Different


A First-of-its-Kind Data-Driven Network 

By launching what we believe is A First of its Kind Data-Driven Network, LaneAxis does not view its solution as a “competitor” - we are a creator of a company-agnostic network built to benefit all parties in the supply chain. While legacy “competitors'' such as Fourkites, 10-4, Macropoint and even Uber Freight seek to connect drivers to available loads, in reality, we believe they are little more than next-generation load boards reposting existing loads - essentially a copy and paste job. 

Instant, direct messaging means no more distracting “Check Calls”

By partnering up with the right strategic partners, in the freight (cargo) industry as well as in the crypto space, LaneAxis stays ahead of new trends. By implementing the right partnerships in the crypto space, LaneAxis tries to benefit from the ongoing mega bull run on digital assets, mainly driven by institutional money looking for a hedge against hyperinflationary monetary politics, as well as the new influx of retail investors, without harming the project.


The Business Model


A B2B Subscription Model, Engineered for Scalability 

The future of LaneAxis is the aggregation of data through the network data access charges. Axis Tokens will be required to access said data. The Design of the LaneAxis’ Network and App Creates Multiple Revenue Streams, while remaining true to the one solution focus. 


  1. Carriers pay a subscription-based monthly network membership fee (no charge for shippers to join the network). Shippers pay a 1% per load transaction fee upon rate confirmation, and a $5 per load FreightVISION tracking fee. Carriers are deducted a 1% transaction fee upon final settlement.

  2. The FreightVISION App with truck-specific navigation is free for drivers. From the portal, Carriers of any size can register and add drivers for free.  When a carrier creates a shipment, they assign it to a driver, then can track the shipment for a fee of only $1. They can then send a tracking link - part of the subscription and free of charge - to their existing shipping customers to build trust, transparency, and introduce them to the LaneAxis network. 


Incentivizing shippers and carriers to use the platform and to buy the tokens, which is needed to use its functionalities, will be done by offering discounts to the users. 


All payments are currently handled by Stripe, one of the leading payment processing companies in the world.

December 2021 LaneAxis Progress Report

3 days ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

What a year. LaneAxis’ progress in 2021 has been both important and impressive. Our Reg. CF campaign was a rousing success, having raised $5 million in 5 months – the second fastest campaign to achieve such a feat.

We now enter 2022 on the precipice of revolutionizing the transportation industry.

 

Government Blockchain Association Partnership

The LaneAxis Direct Network continues to attract attention from organizations in the logistics, investment, blockchain, and government supply chain sectors. Now, more than ever, government agencies are looking for next generation solutions to mitigate supply chain crises such as the one we currently find ourselves in.

LaneAxis is pleased to announce we are partnering with the Northwest chapter of the Government Blockchain Association, which is based nationally out of Fairfax, VirginiaLaneAxis’ recent patent application to establish a Federal Transportation Network aligns directly with the GBA’s stated mission:

 

“GBA connects people and organizations with blockchain technology-based solutions to problems typically faced by government entities. Our mission is to bring together all levels of governments from around the world with various industries for creating helpful dialogue that facilitates the efficient, ethical, and rational adoption of blockchain technology to increase the quality of life for all citizens on a global level”.

It’s important to note that the GBA is not an official government organization, but rather an international nonprofit professional association that promotes blockchain technology solutions to government agencies.

LaneAxis will be working directly with Aleks Vorobets, the West Coast and Canada Lead for the GBA. 

Says Vorobets: 

The Federal Government is focused on blockchain interoperability, and they are hungry for solutions. Their appetite for public/private partnerships has never been higher. Not only do they want to work with the IBMs and Oracles of the world, they want to work with small and medium sized tech companies who are introducing novel solutions to longstanding problems. We aim to identify strategic partnerships within Public, Private, and non profit sectors with the overarching goal of implementing LaneAxis as the Prime Contract recipient for developing a Secure Motor Carrier Safety Data Information Exchange; and a system that uses blockchain technology to create a secure transaction platform with a distributed ledger.”


 Revamped Website | System Updates

We are putting the finishing touches on our new public facing website, and continuing to improve the user experience for the backend portal based on continual feedback from our network Carriers and Shippers.

Here is a sneak peek at our new homepage:

The sleek new design includes a revised TWO-STEP signup process for Shippers. Rather than a standard “call to action” to join the LaneAxis Network, we are enticing them from the beginning to post a load and view all of their Carrier options for free. To view the results - most notably the number and names of Carriers running their preferred lanes - Shippers must provide an email address and create a password. Even if the Shipper abandons the process before completing registration, our platform will collect their contact data for follow-up from our sales team.

Shipper Onboarding - Create Shipment and Register in Two Steps

Also of note, we are adding a 24/7 customer service phone number to assist Shippers and Carriers at any time. As we all know, freight transportation never sleeps.

On the backend portal, we have refined our landing pages on both desktop and mobile. Upgraded features/notifications include:

  • Available to Bid
  • Shipment Currently in Bidding
  • Awarded Shipment
  • Non-awarded Shipment

Driver App Home Screen

Third Party Subscriptions to Utilize LaneAxis Blockchain

Ideally, 100% of all freight shipments will eventually be generated by Shippers and Carriers directly connected and contracted with each other inside the LaneAxis ecosystem.  

While we pursue that lofty goal, LaneAxis will introduce a Blockchain Subscription Model for organizations outside the Network who want to utilize the LaneAxis blockchain for shipment management. This subscription model will also apply to data bundles made available for interested third parties such as insurance companies.

External organizations will have three subscription models to choose from: 

 

  1. Shipment Data Events: All 41 shipment data events are captured on the LaneAxis blockchain for use by any 3rd party Shipper, Carrier or Transportation Management System.
  2. Information Services including performance data, shipment loading and unloading durations, driver detention time, Hours of Service, lane analytics and a host of other valuable data.
  3. A discounted package of subscriptions 1 and 2 offered together.

This subscription model will add another revenue stream for LaneAxis - importantly in the form of monthly recurring charges. These services will also be made available on an à la carte basis at a higher price point.

 

Leveraging NFTs for Shipment Security

2021 has undoubtedly been the year of the NFT. Non-fungible tokens are unique digital assets stored on the blockchain that are coded to guarantee authenticity and singular proof-of-ownership. NFTs can represent real world objects such as music, art, video games or collectibles. In Q3 of 2021, NFT trading volume hit a staggering $10.7 billion.

NFTs have many use cases, including for the supply chain. LaneAxis will utilize NFTs to validate barcodes, QR codes, and RFID chips, among other applications. This will prevent the tampering or forgery of these critical identification tags, and will strengthen our ability to manage and secure freight movements beyond trucking and into multi-modal segments such as shipping, air and rail. AXIS Tokens will validate the NFTs, which will be stored on the LaneAxis blockchain. LaneAxis may expand its use-cases for developing and storing NFTs on its blockchain in the future.

Read this article to learn more about how NFTs can be applied to the supply chain in addition to protecting intellectual property.


And Finally…

We want to welcome our newest team member, Justin Nguyen, who will take on a senior role in our Shipper Outreach Team. Justin boasts experience in import-export shipping, and will be a valuable asset as we expand our services to multi-modal forms of transportation including drayage – which is one of the major issues currently stifling the offloading and movement of containers at major shipping docks.

Thank you again for your enthusiastic support of the LaneAxis Direct Network. As you can see, we are rolling into 2022 at full speed.

We wish you and your loved ones the happiest of holidays, as well as a healthy and prosperous new year. 

 

Best,

-Team LaneAxis

November 2021 LaneAxis Progress Report

about 1 month ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

Hard to believe, but the holidays are here and 2021 is winding down. 

There’s plenty to get to in this month’s update as we start looking ahead to 2022 and our plans for major growth and expansion.


Scaling Up

Network growth is the name of the game, and remains our primary focus heading into the new year. Our primary sales team based out of Detroit continues to make inroads focusing on Shippers in the automotive industry. The team has narrowed its immediate focus on OEMs in four core supplier sectors:

  • Chemicals
  • Metals
  • Resins
  • Fabrics

These four commodities are always in demand and constantly in-transit. Our Detroit team knows the auto industry inside-out, and is both recruiting and educating auto-related Shippers on the efficiencies and incredible value-adds that the LaneAxis Network can bring them.

Beyond the auto industry, our Shipper integration team is connecting with the hundreds of companies already in our network – which covers a wide spectrum of industries. We are in the process of adding new team members to our Shipper and Carrier integration teams to allow us to scale up faster.

We’ve seen a notable increase in the number of Shippers signing up with LaneAxis over the past month, and will soon be increasing our advertising and marketing spend to target other specific industries including Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) and refrigerated goods. 

On the Carrier side, truckers continue to join us in steady numbers as they seek to escape the clutches of the broker-dominated freight acquisition landscape. We will continue to work closely with our partners at the American Association of Owner Operators (AAOO) to increase Carrier membership and engagement.

We’re also in the process of rebuilding/reimagining our home website, LaneAxis.com, to present a more powerful, dynamic and informative introduction to our solution. This includes creating new instructional content in the form of updated demo and explainer videos/tutorials. This, too, is a key element of our efforts to scale up. The new website will be unveiled in the next few weeks.

Finally, we have an exciting update that we’re keeping close to the vest for now, but suffice it to say will help catapult our growth (i.e. "scaling up") in the coming year. Stay tuned.

 

Expanding Out

When we use the term “expanding out,” we’re referring to new initiatives not directly related to network growth, but very much related to our core competencies and our ability to target a wide spectrum of verticals.


First and foremost, as you may have heard by now, LaneAxis has filed a patent application for a “Federal Transportation Network” platform. LaneAxis is applying its proprietary technology with the goal of helping Homeland Security and other federal agencies better manage supply chain emergencies such as pandemics and clogged-up ports.

Click here to read the press release.

LaneAxis CEO and Founder Rick Burnett also addressed this initiative, and the rationale behind our patent filing, in this short video which you can watch below:


 

LaneAxis also recently addressed the current “supply chain crisis” at major ports, specifically the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, and what LaneAxis can do about it.

Click here to read our analysis in our latest blog


Number of trucking companies in LaneAxis database — 82,000+ in California; 30,000+ near L.A./Long Beach

It's important to stress, LaneAxis remains laser focused on our core mission of growing the Shipper-Carrier Direct Network, and optimizing the SaaS and blockchain tech that supports it. That will always remain priority number one.


Blockchain Progress and LaneAxis Case Study

While on the subject of the cryptoshpere, LaneAxis continues to make steady progress on our blockchain and native digital asset integration. Our internal tech team is working closely with our partners at Pixelplex to fine-tune the Shipper-Carrier Smart Contract that will govern all freight movements.

Pixelplex – widely regarded as one of the world’s leading blockchain development firms – recently highlighted LaneAxis on its website in a very complimentary and informative case study, which you can read here.


Pixelplex highlights LaneAxis project in new Case Study

With offices in New York, London, Tokyo, Seoul, Switzerland and Belarus – not to mention a global portfolio of high-profile clients – Pixelplex only works with the best. We’re thrilled, as all shareholders should be, to have them on “our side” as we build out a world-class, blockchain-backed solution for the global supply chain.

As Thanksgiving nears here in the United States, we at LaneAxis extend a very sincere “thank you” to our 7,500+ shareholders for your continued support, encouragement and enthusiasm.

Best,

-Team LaneAxis

 

Press Release: LaneAxis Files Patent for "Federal Transportation Network" Platform

about 2 months ago


Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

By now, you are likely familiar with (and have personally experienced) the ongoing supply chain disruptions initially triggered by the global pandemic. Most recently, images of clogged up ports and predictions of no toys under the Christmas tree have dominated news headlines.

LaneAxis is making a bold - and we believe necessary - move to help the trucking industry AND the federal government better handle these supply chain crises.

This week LaneAxis filed a provisional patent for a "Federal Transportation Network" platform.

You can read the full press release here.


Federal Transportation Network - National Map View of Active-Duty Trucks


Federal Transportation Network - Southwest Region

As stated in the press release, the development of a Federal Transportation Network platform is beyond overdue, and LaneAxis is proud to spearhead this effort for the betterment of the industry and our nation.

Make sure to share this update with your family, friends and personal contacts!

Best,

-Team LaneAxis

October 2021 LaneAxis Progress Report

2 months ago


Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

Fall is here and the LaneAxis sales team is hitting the road – targeting automakers.

The LaneAxis sales team is based out of suburban Detroit – Bloomfield Hills to be exact – and they are about as well connected to auto industry insiders as anyone. It’s worth noting our sales team is comprised almost entirely of LaneAxis shareholders, so they literally have a vested interest in our success as well.

The team’s initial focus will be on auto-related companies with annual revenues of between $1 million to $50 million. This includes Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) who produce parts and systems for automakers. Here’s a sampling of auto industry OEMs and parts suppliers we will recruit into the LaneAxis Network:

  • Raw materials (metals, resins, textiles, etc.)
  • Structures
  • Suspension components
  • Powertrain
  • Engines
  • Transmissions
  • Frames
  • Insulation
  • Electrical
  • Interior trim
  • Batteries
  • HVAC
  • Tires
  • Fasteners 
  • Brake assemblies

This represents but a portion of the colossal and complex auto supply chain that can benefit tremendously from the LaneAxis solution.

On a related note – you may have heard recently about the critical shortage of semiconductor chips that has literally stalled production for many auto manufacturers, particularly in the U.S. This shortage is unquestionably tied to supply chain disruptions caused by the pandemic, but also to insufficient lead-time planning and a lack of network visibility.  

We discuss this and more in our latest blog, which you can read here.

Much of the sales/marketing collateral we have created (and continue to create) is focused on emphasizing the clear advantages LaneAxis offers over freight brokers and third party logistics companies (3PLs). Efficiency and cost-savings rank high on our list of value propositions, as indicated by this graphic:


LaneAxis charges shippers a 1% transaction fee + $5 load tracking fee – regardless of shipment distance. Brokers charge between 15-50% commissions. With brokers, the longer the haul, the bigger the price tag.

Our blockchain development and core LaneAxis SaaS development continue to progress steadily on parallel paths.

On the blockchain side, our digital asset is now listed on two major exchanges with more to be announced soon. 

On the network side, we have devoted significant time and effort into improving our bidding functionality and UX. The network portal now has an entire section devoted specifically to bidding:


Carrier bidding page featuring tabs for Available Bids, Current Bids, Awarded Bids, and Non-Awarded Bids

Below is an image of the bidding section on our mobile app. The bids you see on this screen are real loads that were broadcast to our carrier network via SMS alerts.

The update to the bidding process and visual presentation is one of several enhancements that are a direct result of our ongoing Pilot Program with network carriers and shippers. We are working with our partners at the American Association of Owner Operators (AAOO) to expand the scope of our system testing and feedback.  

Speaking of feedback and our mobile app – we are changing the name of our mobile application. The name “FreightVISION” is being phased out. Our mobile app will now be called “The LaneAxis Network App.” We’re making this change based on the suggestions of our carrier community, and on a broader level as part of our overall marketing strategy. This change is meant to streamline and simplify our branding and platform. Among other things, this will make it easier for visitors to the App Store or Google Play store to find our app by simply searching "LaneAxis." Calling the app “FreightVISION” – while catchy – made it more challenging for drivers and carriers to actually find the app in a search query. It’s important to remember, LaneAxis has trademarked the name “FreightVISION,” so we will retain the option of utilizing it in the future, perhaps in another capacity.

 

News and Notes

  • We are being approached daily by a variety of supply chain entities who are interested in partnering with us in a variety of ways. We’re evaluating these potential partnerships closely, and of course will announce any new alliances when they happen.
  • As you know, LaneAxis owns a valuable patent for a "Shipper and Carrier Interaction Optimization Platform" – which in plain English means we essentially own the process of a brokerless shipper-to-carrier direct software system. Our growing team of developers (on both the blockchain and network sides) have developed several unique processes and features we believe may also be patent-worthy. We are regularly conferring with our patent attorneys to assess new patent viability, as well as enforcement of our existing patent.
  • Don’t forget to follow us on social media and share all our content! All our links are listed at the bottom of this announcement. IMPORTANT NOTE: DON’T FALL FOR SCAMMERS. Unfortunately, a malicious actor or actors has created a fake LaneAxis page on Facebook and is promoting a SCAM promotion asking people to send digital currency to a wallet address. We want all our supporters to know that LaneAxis will NEVER post anything on social media asking people to send us funds directly. We have repeatedly reported this fake page and fraud attempt to Facebook… but Facebook. Not the most responsive company. We can only hope they do the right thing and crack down on these crooks. In the meantime, be careful out there. Scams like this abound. We don’t want any of our supporters to get burned.

Thanks again for your support #LaneAxisNation. Our momentum continues at full speed.

Best,

LaneAxis Campaign Officially Closes – September 2021 Progress Report

3 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

Now we turn the page. 

Our StartEngine campaign is officially over, having concluded at the stroke of midnight on August 31. Thanks to YOUR support, we can now focus exclusively and intensively on growing the LaneAxis Direct Freight Network into a global force that will change the face of transportation. 

This was an exciting campaign that got off to a hot start ($400,000 raised in the first four days), and ended just as hot. Although we reached our fundraising cap on August 18, a surge of waitlisted investments continued to pour in right up until midnight August 31.

Here’s a snapshot of our 2021 campaign stats:

  • Nearly 4,700 investors
  • Additional 300+ people on waitlist
  • Nearly $375,000 in waitlisted funds submitted
  • Campaign averaged $1 million in investments per month
  • Second-fastest StartEngine campaign to reach its cap under revised SEC rules for Reg CF offerings that went into effect this year

Please note: If you are currently on the waitlist, there remains a chance your investment will be pushed through. StartEngine is still processing all the investment funds submitted prior to reaching our cap.

With this campaign now concluded, we can focus squarely on scaling up our network membership, continued testing and integration of our blockchain platform and AXIS Token, and improving the user interface and user experience of our core SaaS system and FreightVISION mobile app.

The name of the game now is iterate, iterate, iterate to create the best user experience possible. The Shipper and Carrier feedback we have received via our pilot testing program has been incredibly valuable. One of the biggest takeaways thus far has been to shorten and simplify the process of posting, assigning and managing loads. This is being reflected in the updated releases of the FreightVISION app and backend shipment management portal. Not only are we introducing cleaner and more intuitive visual layouts, but we will soon be integrating a slew of new features – particularly into the app. A freight industry analyst recently stated that truck drivers are suffering from “App overload and fatigue.”  

This is not a surprise to us. We have often stated that there is plenty of good transportation technology out there – but the tech landscape is disparate and spread thin – forcing truckers to utilize multiple apps at once. 

Carriers, Drivers, and Shippers are desperately in search of a single platform that can “do it all.” LaneAxis is that platform.

On the sales/marketing side, our growing team is now targeting distinct shipping verticals as part of our strategy to “divide and conquer” key business sectors. Our initial focus includes the following industries:

  • Automotive – with a particular focus on electric vehicle manufacturers
  • Refrigerated Goods
  • Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG)
  • Companies that rely on flatbed trucks to move large machinery or oversized products 

These four sectors alone represent a large majority of the products moved in the U.S. (and around the globe). All our marketing collateral and Sales processes will be tailored to each individual sector and buyer personas. As we’ve stated previously – but bears repeating – our sales and advisory team has deep connections with major shippers in all of the key industries just mentioned. With our newly injected capital, we can now move in earnest to leverage those relationships and start growing our network – particularly on the shipper side – exponentially.

On another note – the response to our recent live webinar/system demo featuring LaneAxis CEO & Founder Rick Burnett was overwhelmingly positive. Our next live online event is tentatively scheduled for mid-January, 2022. Rick will provide a wrap-up of 2021 and a look ahead to 2022 – a year in which we are anticipating explosive growth.

Speaking of Rick, we recently shared a preview of a feature article in PerceptivX declaring Rick one of the most “Dynamic CEOs of 2021.” The online version of the story has just been posted. You can read it here. PerceptivX is a business-oriented online and print publication that focuses on the more human and psychological traits of high profile leaders. 

In the meantime we will, as always, keep you updated on important company developments including system enhancements, new partnerships, network growth, and more. Make sure to follow us on our social media channels and share our content. All the links are at the bottom of this announcement.

Thanks again for your support #LaneAxisNation.

Thank You LaneAxis Investors; Waitlist Reminder

4 months ago


We once again want to thank all 4,476 people who invested in LaneAxis during our just concluded Reg. CF campaign.

This year’s campaign, which launched March 15, 2021, lasted almost exactly 5 months, officially selling out August 18, 2021. Averaging $1 million in contributions per month, LaneAxis became the second-fastest campaign on StartEngine to reach its cap under revised SEC rules for Reg CF campaigns that went into effect this year. The average investment for this round was $882 per person. 

An important reminder to those who are still interested in owning a piece of LaneAxis. Although we have officially reached our fundraising cap, you can still join the waitlist. Our campaign will technically remain open until August 31, 2021. Any prior investments that are nullified or cancelled (which happens semi-regularly for a variety of reasons) will result in waitlisted individuals having their intended contributions pushed through and being given the corresponding amount of LaneAxis shares. You can join the waitlist at the top of our campaign page.

We will continue to provide company updates via StartEngine, but will eventually transition our news updates to our email lists and social media. If you are a LaneAxis shareholder, you don't have to do anything. We have the email addresses of all our contributors. 

A final thank you as we celebrate this important achievement. For the LaneAxis team, it's now back to work. Your trust and hard-earned money will fuel the LaneAxis mission of fixing a supply chain that is decades overdue for a new, practical, and powerful solution.

 

Best,

-Team LaneAxis

Campaign Oversubscribed! Investments Still Being Accepted.

4 months ago


Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

YOU did it! Our StartEngine campaign is officially "oversubscribed," meaning we have reached the investment cap allowed by current Reg. CF rules.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Our campaign is technically still live, and will remain so until our officially scheduled end date of August 31, 2021. YOU CAN CONTINUE TO SUBMIT INVESTMENTS UNTIL THAT DATE. In fact, we strongly encourage you to do so. In the event any prior investments do not clear or are nullified (which can happen for a variety of reasons), investors who are on the waitlist will have their contributions pushed through and you will receive your LaneAxis shares.

A huge thank you to the 4,500+ investors who contributed to this campaign. LaneAxis now has over 6,500 shareholders. That is a formidable army of LaneAxis evangelists. As this door closes, a multitude of new doors are about to open. Let's all enjoy this ride together.

We will, of course, continue to keep you updated every step of the way as we march forward in our quest to transform freight transportation.


Best,

-Team LaneAxis

$50K to Closing; Rick Burnett Named “Dynamic CEO of 2021”

4 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters, 

To borrow a sports analogy, it’s the ninth inning and the game’s just about over. LaneAxis has a comfortable lead – now it’s just a matter of closing things out.

We’re approximately $50,000 away from reaching our fundraising cap and concluding our StartEngine campaign. This truly IS IT. 

If you haven’t invested in LaneAxis – the first brokerless Direct Freight Network in the industry – it’s decision time. Once we oversubscribe it truly is game over, and there’s no going back. This is something we had to explain to HUNDREDS of people who waited too long at the conclusion of our 2020 campaign and begrudgingly ended up on our waitlist.

If you don’t want that to be you… Invest in LaneAxis now! Who knows what tomorrow will – or won’t – bring.


LaneAxis CEO Rick Burnett Named PerceptivX “Dynamic CEO of 2021”



LaneAxis CEO & Founder Rick Burnett continues garner attention and accolades from the business world. Burnett will be featured in the September edition of “PerceptivX Magazine” as one of the “Dynamic CEOs of 2021.”

PerceptivX is a widely read online publication boasting 47,000+ subscribers, mostly C-Suite, and 46,000+ monthly online visitors.

PerceptivX takes a different tack when interviewing business leaders. Their goal is to focus on more human elements and motivations behind the success of high-profile individuals. 

Of Rick Burnett, they write: “Rick knows supply chain in and out; He prefers to keep things simple yet always striving to get smarter. He eliminates the junk information from his conscious that will not enhance his knowledge or business strategies in any meaningful way. Every day, he looks for new and improved ways to feed his mind with information about supply chains that will elevate his business, strategies, and mental health.”

Although this feature story will not be published until September, we’ve received an advanced copy that we are sharing with you today.

Less than 90K to go; Rick Burnett on Founder-Focused Podcast

4 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

We’re now less than $90,000 in contributions away from closing out our current fundraise. If you’re not already a member of #LaneAxisNation – but like the idea of joining a movement focused on transforming the supply chain for the greater good – that train is leaving soon.

You know what to do! 

Meanwhile, LaneAxis CEO & Founder Rick Burnett continues to inform and enlighten the public about the persistent problems in freight transportation. Rick sat down for a podcast interview with David Tran of “Fuse.”

 

FUSE is a video-based interview show where the founders of xFusion.io have conversations with entrepreneurs, business owners, and thought leaders of the startup world – with the ultimate goal of sharing their wisdom with others. 

Rick answered an oft-asked question: If a brokerless, Shipper-to-Carrier Direct Network is such a clear solution to the industry’s woes – why hasn’t it been done before?

You can hear his answer at about the 6:35 mark:


As always, we encourage you to share these informative interviews and features with your personal and professional connections.

We also encourage you to share our StartEngine campaign page – something we may not be able to say much longer.

LaneAxis Crosses $4.8 Million; $100K Since Friday

4 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

LaneAxis just cleared $4.8 million in campaign investments – meaning we are 97% of the way to hitting our fundraising cap of $4.94 million.

We’ve raised $100,000+ since Friday alone, and about $325,000 over the past 10 days.

Add it all up and we’re only about $140k away from crossing the checkered flag. Our official campaign end date is August 31, but it doesn’t take a math whiz to anticipate the possibility of hitting the cap well before that.

To our approximately 4,400 investors in this round (and 6,500+ shareholders overall) – a huge thank you for your support and belief in our mission.

To our 11,000 followers: We realize “FOMO” (Fear of Missing Out) tactics are overused and often deceptive.

But the numbers speak for themselves. When we reached this late-stage point in our 2020 campaign, a flood of investors pushed us over the top in a matter of days. Hundreds of people were left on the waitlist. We closed out several weeks early.

We hope to repeat that history here in August of 2021.

And once our campaign is officially closed, we will make history with the first Blockchain-Backed Direct Freight Network.

 

Best,

-Team LaneAxis

LaneAxis Webinar: Rick Burnett Q&A

4 months ago


Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

We had a great turnout for today's Live Webinar & System Demo. 

Rather than present the actual system demo - which can be requested via our website www.LaneAxis.com - we're presenting you today with the Q&A session on the back half hour of our presentation. 

LaneAxis CEO Rick Burnett hit on some major points that clearly resonated with our demo attendees (based on the kudos received following the virtual event):

Key Topics Rick Addressed:

  • Our "competition"
  • Who benefits most from the platform
  • Where we've been and where we're going
  • How shareholders can propel us forward
  • The true meaning of a "Direct Model" - and why LaneAxis is the only company doing it



Here's a sampling of the comments we received during and after the webinar:

"Thank you. Continue the great work. This has been very informative and I really like the interface. Would love to help spread the word." -Ivan

"Great response Rick! I love this program and what it represents. I'm really beginning to understand what the "direct network" means and represents! Its really mindblowing! I may be heading back to make a 5th investment... lol" -Shane 

"RICK  Relax, take a couple of days rest--- go deep sea fishing. Catalina maybe. Company is going to be GIANT!" -Jack


Based on the webinar analytics, our audience was engaged throughout (i.e. webinar browsers were front and center nearly 100% of the time).

We're confident we can close out our StartEngine campaign soon - and with your continued help and enthusiasm we can do it.

Invest now to stake your claim in LaneAxis!

Boiling it Down: Top 3 Reasons to Invest in LaneAxis

4 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders & Supporters,

First of all - thank you for your support! 

As we approach the end of our crowdfunding campaign, we thought it would be helpful to boil down the top 3 reasons to invest in LaneAxis - if you haven’t already. 

1. A Huge Market Desperate for Change - We are disrupting a massive market that is evolving and growing at a rapid pace. The global pandemic made it utterly clear that the supply chain isn’t ready for the demanding online environment. Images of store shelves stripped bare of essentials such as toilet paper and cleaning supplies belied the fact that many of those products were in fact available and sitting in warehouses. Next generation technology is needed to tackle the increasing demand, and with that the increasing expectations of the end consumers. A direct, transparent freight network utilizing blockchain could have significantly mitigated this supply chain crisis by identifying available supply with available nearby carrier capacity. 

2. Unbeatable Technology - We have developed an industry-first Shipper-to-Carrier Direct Network supported by blockchain and patented software. The LaneAxis platform provides shippers visibility to a filtered query carrier and driver pool, providing shippers with capacity when and where they need it, and giving carriers and drivers additional revenue opportunities. Once shippers and carriers are connected in the network and directly negotiate a shipment (sans freight brokers), loads are tracked in real-time, with all milestones and shipment documents immediately visible on the shipment dashboard. All e-docs and data points are securely stored on the blockchain.

By launching our data-driven Network, LaneAxis does not view its solution as a “competitor” - we are a creator of a company-agnostic network built to benefit all parties in the supply chain. 

3. We Love Crowdfunding, and Crowdfunding Loves Us - We’ve already executed one oversubscribed $1.07M raise on StartEngine in 2020, which sold out ahead of schedule with hundreds of hungry investors left on the waitlist. 

Now, as we approach the end of our second campaign, we have already hit major fundraising milestones with nearly $4.5 million raised (out of a possible $4.94M) via 4,100+ investors. 

For those of you who have already invested – thank you!  

For our nearly 11,000 followers still considering investing, now is the time! Our campaign closes in just a few weeks – or when we hit our fundraising cap – whichever happens first. 

We don’t want you to miss this major investment opportunity. Click the green “Invest Now” button to claim your piece of the future of the freight industry. 


WEBINAR REMINDER: LaneAxis will be holding a live webinar/system demo on Thursday, August 12, at 10am PDT.

P.S. A quick note regarding comments/questions posted to our StartEngine page. Some of you have submitted questions to our team recently via our campaign page. Unfortunately, a technical issue on the SE platform has prevented those questions from actually being posted and visible - so we have not received them. StartEngine is working hard to resolve this issue.

We would never ignore our valued shareholders and supporters! We always prioritize answering questions and comments as quickly and thoroughly as possible. Apologies for any inconvenience. Again, StartEngine anticipates having this issue fixed very soon. Thank you.

August Progress Report; Video Message from the CEO

4 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

Welcome to August - and welcome to the home stretch of our StartEngine campaign.

We’re closing in on closing out, and we remain focused on hitting our fundraising cap before our scheduled August 31 end date. We will be posting a countdown clock on our campaign page this week.

For this month’s progress update, we’re sitting down for a video chat with LaneAxis CEO & Founder Rick Burnett who has a message for our 6,000+ shareholders.

Before we get to the video, a few housekeeping/company updates to pass along:

  • Our blockchain and network system pilot program with in-network Shippers and Carriers is progressing well. We continue to gather and implement feedback we’ve received from participants. Our most significant system enhancement resulting from this feedback is giving Shippers the ability to broadcast loads for bidding to the entire LaneAxis carrier community, regardless of whether the two sides are directly connected. If a Shipper accepts a bid from a Carrier not already in their personal network, the system automatically connects them.
  • Our updated payment system is almost complete and will soon be pushed live. Shippers will soon have the option of submitting carrier payments via a digital currency known as a “stablecoin.” Each stablecoin equals one U.S. dollar. This payment method results in lower fees charged to the shipper, and also saves LaneAxis money in fees normally siphoned off to traditional credit card processors.
  • WEBINAR SCHEDULED FOR THURSDAY, AUGUST 12. By popular demand, we will be hosting a live webinar beginning at 10 am PDT on August 12, 2021. Our multi-talented Product/Project Manager Elvis Rodrigues will conduct a live demo of the LaneAxis platform. Many of our shareholders and supporters have expressed a deep interest in seeing how our core network system works in real-time. This is your chance! We’re excited to show off the updated iteration of a platform that has been nearly a decade in the making. LaneAxis CEO Rick Burnett will be on hand to answer any questions. Space is limited for this webinar. We will be sending out a registration link TOMORROW via StartEngine and traditional email. Make sure to register quickly so you can participate!

Now to our feature presentation, a video message to shareholders from Mr. LaneAxis – CEO & Founder Rick Burnett.



Once again – the finish line for our StartEngine campaign is well within sight.

We often focus - rightfully so - on the plight of small carriers and owner-operators forced to navigate the shark (read: freight broker) infested waters of the supply chain.

Shippers of all sizes are also sick of the inefficiencies and lack of transparency bogging down the system.

In this :49 second video we introduce you to a furniture and household goods (HHG) shipper who is saving big dollars and avoiding big headaches thanks to the LaneAxis platform.



Campaign Update: We just crossed the $4.3 million mark in our StartEngine campaign. As the investment tally keeps climbing, the clock keeps winding down to the end of our equity fundraise.

Frequently Asked Questions from LaneAxis Investors

4 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders & Supporters, 

Thank you for your continued support in our mission to fix the fractured global supply chain with our brokerless Direct Freight Network. Whether you’ve already invested or are still considering an investment, we want to provide you with some answers to a few common questions from our crowdfunding community: 


What sets LaneAxis apart from other supply chain tech companies? 

No one is creating a true DIRECT freight transportation network. There is plenty of track-and-trace technology out there but no one is coalescing the nearly 4 million independent drivers in the U.S. into a single, unified network. No one else is setting up a platform to build trust, transparency and most importantly, direct connectivity between shippers and carriers, eliminating billions of dollars in “managed services fees” piled on by freight brokers that eat into the profits of both shippers and drivers. 

Additionally, we have a valuable patent, a feature-rich FreightVISION Driver app that includes truck-specific navigation and provides valuable data to the shipment portal, a partnership and in-app access to AAOO (American Association of Owner Operators), blockchain functionality (with Smart Contract already engineered), and a team that includes trucking and transportation vets including two senior advisors who are former Walmart supply chain executives. 


How are Shipper-to-Carrier payments handled? How fast is the payment turnaround for Carriers? 

Once Shipper and Carrier agree to the rate confirmation, the Shipper will submit the full payment (the “Load Payment”) in advance. The Load Payment will be held in a Gateway ("escrow") Account during the duration of the shipment. 

Once the driver uploads the signed Proof-of-Delivery, the Load Payment to the Carrier will be held for an additional 24 hours to allow for any potential disputes and their resolutions. If there are no disputes, LaneAxis guarantees Load Payment (less Shipper and Carrier Transaction Fee of 1% each, and any other applicable fees) will be released directly to the Carrier’s bank account on file. No more factoring! 


Your main focus is obviously the trucking sector. What other supply chain services/industries is your product compatible with? 

Our product is certainly focused on trucking, but our freight tracking and management solution is multi-modal in that it covers land, sea, air and rail. This is made possible through tracking Load Manifest ID numbers, RFID chips, GPS, and integration into in-cab hardware such as Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs). 

Our core product is the LaneAxis Direct Network, which creates a direct connection network for shippers and carriers to do business together – and in the process will generate a tremendous amount of actionable industry data. We will also provide access to our network data, including average loading times at docks, carrier performance history, driver scoring, and much more. LaneAxis will charge a network data access fee to obtain this information. This will be of immense interest for peripheral third parties such as insurance companies and government regulators. 


Are you seeing an increasing trend among shippers and carriers of moving away from the brokers and towards you? Are most people actually willing and able to make that switch? 

Our message of eliminating the broker machine is resonating, which is why carriers have been flocking to our platform since our network launch last fall. We are averaging several hundred carriers joining the network per week, and that number has been steadily increasing month over month. We have roughly a couple hundred shippers on board, and our message is starting to resonate with them as well.

We hope this provides you with greater clarity about the power and potential of our solution. Feel free to ask us any more questions in the comments section, or reach out directly to us via the "Contact Us" form on www.laneaxis.com.

"It's groundbreaking what you guys are doing." Trucker turns to LaneAxis to plan loads - and his future.

4 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

We say it often - but it's best heard from truckers themselves. Driving empty miles and waiting for hours at shipping docks are two of the biggest problems facing small carriers and owner/operators.

LaneAxis is changing that - and the trucking community couldn't be more ready or more excited.

Watch this :38 second video to hear this trucker's perspective.



 

Campaign update: As expected, our investment momentum has accelerated after we crossed the $4 million mark. We'll be posting a countdown clock to the end of our campaign soon.

Here's what being a shareholder in LaneAxis means

4 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders,

When you own a company – or you’re a stakeholder in it – you own a stake in all its assets.

People typically invest in specific companies for specific reasons. We believe the strength of our vision and the power of our platform are the main incentive drivers for LaneAxis investors.

But the true value of a whole company is measured by the sum of its parts.  

Here’s a glimpse of the core components that LaneAxis shareholders can claim ownership to:


 Patented Intellectual Property

LaneAxis – and its shareholders - essentially “own the process” of the industry-first global Brokerless Direct Freight Network engineered on the blockchain and powered by AXIS Token. U.S. Patent 9,928,475. – legally known as a “Shipper and Carrier Interaction Optimization Platform” - was approved in March of 2018. As revenue and capital grows, LaneAxis will be investing in legal efforts to generate licensing fees from patent enforcement. To be clear: we are not making revenue assumptions based on patent enforcement, but it is a fact that this critical asset could potentially generate significant additional revenue. 


LaneAxis Patent Cover Page

The patent covers a web and mobile-based Software as a Service system (SaaS) for a shipper-carrier interaction platform – in other words a true DIRECT NETWORK. This patent alone, along with several more pending, gives us a significant and noteworthy competitive edge.


LaneAxis CEO Rick Burnett discussing LaneAxis Patent in Shanghai, China

Currently, our attorneys believe multiple companies may be in violation of this patent. If so, these entities will with either face patent infringement penalties or will have to agree to pay ongoing licensing fees. LaneAxis will aggressively pursue patent violators.


LaneAxis Trademark certificate and Patent introduction page


Proprietary Network Portal and FreightVISION Mobile App

LaneAxis has leveraged this critical patent to create the first-of-its-kind Direct Freight Network – which is managed via a proprietary network portal that is directly tied to the FreightVISION mobile app. The Network Dashboard gives a comprehensive overview of a company’s Shipments, Active Bids, Network Connections, Payments, Transactions and much more.


LaneAxis Network Portal Dashboard

Custom-Engineered Blockchain Platform, Smart Contract, and Digital Asset

LaneAxis shareholders can also lay claim to a custom-designed blockchain platform that runs on the Ethereum Optimism Layer 2 protocol. In concert with our custom engineered Smart Contract and native digital asset - the AXIS Token, of which LaneAxis holds 1.2 billion – this next gen technology sits at the heart of the Direct Network ecosystem. Per official legal opinion, the AXIS Token is a true utility token, allowing for public exchange opportunities and the potential to establish a global footprint. Several official foreign entities have reached out to us expressing interest in integrating the cost-saving direct network platform into their national supply chains.  


LaneAxis Blockchain Benefits

Reaching this point was hardly inexpensive – in 2018 LaneAxis spent 45 Bitcoin to develop the backend functionality for the blockchain protocol. Even in today’s “down” market – 45 BTC equates to nearly $1.5 million USD. LaneAxis also owns 1.2 billion AXIS tokens, which are listed on the LaneAxis balance sheet. 


Big Data for Transportation Industry

As LaneAxis continues to evolve and the network continues to grow, we forecast running tens of thousands of loads per day through the system. This will generate an immense amount of revenue and concrete industry data that simply doesn’t exist today. This “big data” will be in high demand by supply chain participants and peripheral third parties such as insurance companies, academic and industry researchers, and even government entities.

LaneAxis will OWN all this data and make it available via AXIS Tokens. As many of you know, big data is often referred to as the “new gold.”


Proprietary Automated Trading System

You have likely noticed a recent shift in banking with new, bold ideas being brought to the fore including greater interest focused on blockchain/digital assets. We don’t think it’s too far a stretch to suggest paper money will cease to exist in the near future. 

With an eye toward accelerating LaneAxis’ growth, we are building a proprietary trading algorithm that will allow the company to capitalize on market fluctuations. This will not be made available to the public, but will be utilized for internal capital growth. Again, we are not making official revenue generating assumptions, but we do believe this asset has the potential to develop into a reliable additional revenue stream.

For some perspective of its potential, a 29-year-old tech expert named Sam Bankman-Fried developed a similar algorithm. Its success helped him launch a company called FTX – which was recently valued at $18 billion.


Conclusion

Whether it’s a home, a car, or a company, owning something with tangible value triggers a psychological effect known as “pride of ownership.”  

Given the great strides the team has made, we are proud to give our shareholders a fuller picture of what it means to be an official member of #LaneAxisNation!

LaneAxis Charges Past $4 million; Finish Line in Sight

5 months ago


Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

LaneAxis has cleared the $4 million mark in its StartEngine campaign, marking the last major milepost on the road to closing out our current fundraising round.

With the finish line now in sight, we're hoping to max out our campaign quickly and move in earnest to the critical tasks before us - namely growing our brokerless direct network, growing revenue, completing system updates, and completing integration of our blockchain functionality into our patented core SaaS platform.

Says LaneAxis CEO & Founder Rick Burnett: 

“We continue to be awestruck by the depth and breadth of our supporter community, which comprises both seasoned investors as well as those who will benefit most from the platform: truckers and shipping companies.”

Nearly 4,000 people have invested their hard-earned dollars to get us to this point - all believers in our stated mission to cut out brokers and reinvent freight transportation to benefit the entire supply chain - right down to consumers.

A huge thank you to those 4,000 investors.

And another firm nudge to our 10,000+ followers: We'll be putting up a countdown clock shortly to mark the scheduled end of our campaign - but our hope and goal is to close out well before that date.

Intellectual Capital - LaneAxis Adds Two Supply Chain Vets to Staff

5 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

Raising financial capital is obviously critical to the success of any company.

Continually increasing a company’s intellectual capital is just as crucial – perhaps more so.

It is in this spirit we are thrilled to welcome two substantial additions to the LaneAxis team: Kevin Cronin and Robert Moorhead.

Kevin and Robert will be joining LaneAxis as senior members of our Shipper Outreach/Relations and Lead Generation Teams. Kevin and Robert will also work with our established sales team based out of Detroit, Michigan.

We think you’ll agree, LaneAxis is fortunate to have landed such exceptional talent.

Kevin Cronin – Boasting a Master’s Degree in Global Supply Chain Management from the University of Southern California and a separate Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Colorado Technical University, Kevin brings multiple core (and critical) competencies to the table including:

  • Freight/supply chain management
  • Certified blockchain expertise 
  • Decentralized finance (Defi)
  • Expedite, escalate, resolve and communicate operational issues
  • Measure and report carrier key performance indicators to ensure quality logistics performance, timely transit, and service in operations
  • Determine best domestic transportation routing 
  • Develop and maintain relationships with service providers to enable selection of the optimal balance of services and costs

 

Kevin spent 12 years as a Logistics Agent/Manager for a top Logistics Company based on the U.S. east coast, with a focus on managing Full Truckload (FTL) and Less than Truckload (LTL) movements for high-level clients on an operational level. Kevin was intricately involved in business development, negotiating carrier rates, and meeting with shipping providers regularly to discuss performance metrics, provide feedback, and discuss forecasts or changes in processes.

 

Says Kevin: 

“I have a passion for creating solutions to challenges arising in the realm of supply chain and logistics management, and managing projects. With a well-rounded theoretical knowledge base consisting of advanced degrees in Business and Global Supply Chain Management, I place an emphasis on always learning and continuing to improve. I love LaneAxis’ passion, innovation, and attitude! I FULLY support your objectives.”

 

Robert Moorhead – Robert is another supply chain “All Star” with the resume, drive and perspective to justify such a moniker.

Launching his supply chain journey with a degree in computer science from Georgia Southern University, Robert’s career began on the technical side as a Systems Analyst for corporate giant General Electric at their Simulation & Control Systems Division. After working as a Systems Analyst on tank simulation software for the U.S. Army in Europe, he was promoted to project lead on the Inventory and Parts Tracking system which was developed to track and maintain parts for all installed simulators within European bases.

After leaving GE, Robert had the opportunity to work for some of the leading companies in the Supply Chain Management (SCM), Quality Management, and manufacturing industries including Manugistics, Rightworks, and Sparta Systems. While at Sparta Robert was promoted into the Product Marketing role to help migrate their Pharma-focused solution over to the Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) industry.

Here’s a detailed breakdown of Robert’s hands-on experience:

  • Consumer goods
  • Automobile
  • Discreet Manufacturing
  • Warehouse Management
  • Transportation Management
  • Pharmaceuticals 
  • Digital Architect
  • Data Warehouse
  • eCommerce, 
  • AI, ML, AMR

 

Says Robert:

“I believe what LaneAxis is doing is a great strategy to disrupt a very stagnant business model within the shipping industry - especially since you are addressing multi-modal transportation. For me, my drive has always been about the challenge. I believe that the experiences I have had in different industries along with the roles I have taken on provide me with a multitude of skillsets that allow me to approach solution or product solving from multiple angles.”

#LaneAxisNation, please join us in welcoming Kevin and Robert to the LaneAxis Team. 

The addition of these two fine professionals is just as critical to the success of LaneAxis as every technological or system advancement we regularly announce. Groundbreaking technology is nothing without exceptional talent to implement, promote, and maximize its effectiveness.

 

Best,

-Team LaneAxis
 

Transportation and Trucking Vets Heap Praise on LaneAxis

5 months ago


Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters, 

First off – we’ve got some exciting company updates coming your way soon including important new hires, system upgrades/enhancements, new partnerships, and new inquiries about our platform coming in from foreign entities.

As LaneAxis continues to grow in size and stature, we’re hearing more and more from trucking industry veterans expressing their unbridled enthusiasm for this long overdue brokerless direct network. 

These are the folks most negatively impacted by the current broken system - and conversely the ones who will benefit most from the impending LaneAxis overhaul of the supply chain. 

Today we thought we’d share just a handful of comments we’ve received recently from industry insiders about the LaneAxis solution:

“I'm an independent inventor with issued utility patents from the USPTO. My dad was a newspaperman turned trucker celebrity who authored numerous books about trucking. My husband and I have hauled primarily for shippers in the past [including] Nestle and PepsiCo. Currently we are leaving a hazmat job searching for work, and I have to be honest and say LaneAxis sounds like a dream come true. Connecting shippers directly to carriers is what is desperately needed in the trucking industry. The LaneAxis business model is a great way to eliminate the unnecessary middleman between shippers and carriers. The large trucking companies like JB Hunt, Knight/Swift and Schneider are destroying the industry with their greed.”

-April Cantley 

 

“Up to 48,636 shares purchased, probably going for more. I own a small trucking company and I've never wanted to see someone succeed more than LaneAxis.”

-Matthew Parker  


“I'm about to make my 3rd investment into this future behemoth. In every way, shape and form these guys are the real deal! Several years from now, (after LaneAxis is a global conglomerate through which every shipper and carrier must conform to/cooperate with, to transport anything anywhere) will you not be filled with regret? People, the future of logistics is here, it's called LaneAxis. This is not the boat you want to miss!”

-Shane Oliver

 

“I used to work as a General Commodities dispatcher (Third party Logistics Provider). I immediately love the concept and genuinely see this as the natural progression of the industry. I once had a truck driver deadhead from Miami to Pensacola, just to get a load out of Florida…. I’ll let you do the math.”

-Jimmy Mansfield

 

“This is my initial experience with the platform. As a veteran in the transportation industry, I am super excited to watch LaneAxis succeed with this endeavor. The concept offers a realistic opportunity to remedy operations pain points.”

-Andrea Kirkland

 

To all our supporters – both within and outside the supply chain industry – we thank you deeply for your passion and perspective as we carry on this movement together.

Video: Big Trucks Slamming into Low Bridges

5 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Supporters and Shareholders,

The importance of truck-specific navigation can't be overstated. 


Source: 11foot8.com

That's why LaneAxis offers this feature for free on our FreightVISION app for all loads run through the system. It's just one more way we're looking out for small Truckers/Carriers who are on a tight budget. 

Quality truck-specific navigation systems can be very expensive - often climbing into the hundreds of dollars for top tier platforms - with many piling on monthly service fees for added annoyance and expense. 

It's not difficult to understand why truck-specific navigation is so important. Weight restrictions, dangerous turns and low overpasses are just a handful of obstacles truckers must be on the lookout for. 

The video below certainly showcases these dangers in full. Many might view these accidents as entertainment, but they can have life and death consequences. And even when no one is injured, cabs, trailers and the products they're hauling are often destroyed - leading to catastrophic financial consequences.


Source: Virality TeeVee


It's important to note LaneAxis isn't "cutting corners" with its free truck-specific navigation. LaneAxis utilizes HERE Maps technology, which has been named the top location platform three years in a row, ahead of such giants as Google Maps and Tom Tom.



When LaneAxis says we care about the trucking community, we mean it.

Trucking Companies Escape the Amazon Jungle

5 months ago


Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

Amazon is many things to many people. It is convenient. It is powerful. And few would question it is ruthless in its mission to dominate the consumer goods market.

Unfortunately, part of that ruthlessness comes at the expense of trucking companies it hires to deliver their goods at lightning fast speeds.

At first, Carriers may be excited to land such a plum job. But last week two delivery companies in Oregon proved the "Amazon Advantage" isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Citing abusive and harmful practices, these two delivery companies essentially "fired" Amazon - in essence shutting their own companies down - at least for now. 

From the story:

"The companies were losing money and employees trying to satisfy Amazon and their constant abusive changes. You have to hire numerous drivers who may or may not be working. One day Amazon dictates that you have thirty routes, the next day forty, then the day after twenty. You’re supposed to have enough drivers for back-up while Amazon is lowering pay. Amazon’s actions are unlawful."

READ THE FULL STORY HERE.

LaneAxis is focused on leveling the playing field for these small trucking/delivery companies. Our direct network will liberate these small operations from having to devote their entire company's future to the whims of a multinational conglomerate like Amazon. LaneAxis gives small truckers greater bargaining power, the ability to negotiate fairer contracts, and crucially, the ability to walk away from bad deals without going belly up. 

 

Campaign Update: We are creeping closer to the $4 million mark, which will be the last major milestone on our way to closing out our campaign.

July 2021 Progress Update: Pilot Program Underway; Did You Reconfirm Your LaneAxis Investment?

5 months ago


Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

As we enter July, LaneAxis has its sights set on closing out our StartEngine campaign strong and soon. We’re about 75% of the way there.

Important Note: As you know, LaneAxis pushed back its StartEngine campaign closing date from June 30 to August 31. Because of this material change to the offering, the rules required all contributors whose investments had not been finalized to “reconfirm” their investment prior to today – July 1. 

A big thank you to the vast majority of supporters who reconfirmed on time.

Unfortunately, a handful of investors did *not reconfirm on time, meaning their LaneAxis investment has been voided. Our concern is that many of those who did not reconfirm were unaware they had to do so. Although StartEngine and LaneAxis did send out reminders, it’s possible the messages may have slipped through the inbox cracks, or may have otherwise been missed or forgotten.

For those of you whose investment was finalized, and for those who “reconfirmed” their investment on the StartEngine website, you have nothing to worry about.

However, for those who did not reconfirm by June 30 – or those who are unsure – we ask that you follow this link to view/confirm your investment status: https://www.startengine.com/dashboard/investments/all.

If you find that your investment has been voided, we invite you to reinvest again to stay aboard the “LaneAxis Express.”

Speaking from experience - during our first StartEngine campaign in 2020 we experienced an avalanche of investments as we began to approach our fundraising cap. We did indeed close early, with hundreds of hungry investors left on the waitlist.

To our current campaign’s nearly 10,000 followers, a friendly nudge – don’t get left out! Last year we spent several weeks “consoling” waitlisted followers who simply waited too long.

 

Shipper Pilot Program Underway

Our all-important Shipper pilot program is officially underway. We have engaged approximately 80 in-network Shippers and a large number of Carriers to test all facets of the LaneAxis platform. 


 

The pilot program will be carried out methodically and gradually. In other words, we will not be testing with 80 Shippers all at once. We will spend the next 2-4 months guiding and monitoring our Shippers and Carriers to ensure a smooth process of creating, assigning, managing, and settling shipments. This includes the critical launch and integration of blockchain-based “smart contracts” that will govern all loads. 

Here’s a brief overview of the process.

Of course we will keep you posted on the progress and results of this pilot program.

 

Awards, Accolades and Rick in the Spotlight

June was a great month on numerous fronts – with the most important accomplishments being the technical progress achieved on both the blockchain development/integration side of things, as well as important advancements in our core LaneAxis software and FreightVISION app.

LaneAxis and CEO & Founder Rick Burnett certainly soaked up the spotlight in June across a wide spectrum of tech and business-focused publications and platforms.

On June 18, DotCom Magazine named LaneAxis its "2021 Impact Company of the Year." DotCom Magazine "covers real entrepreneur stories from visionaries that are making a difference. DotCom Magazine has honored LaneAxis as making a positive difference in an incredibly unique year. LaneAxis has built the world’s first 'Brokerless' Direct Freight Network powered by blockchain. The yearlong pandemic highlighted the glaring inefficiencies plaguing freight transportation – and LaneAxis is uniquely positioned to solve these pain points."

You can read the full press release here.

Rick also participated in an engaging podcast with DotCom Magazine Founder and serial entrepreneur Andy Jacob. Andy seemed genuinely blown away by the Brokerless Direct Freight Network LaneAxis has built:

 "I love it, Rick. And for the entrepreneurs watching the show, rewind what Rick just said. You might not understand a lot of it, but you understand his passion. You understand the fact that he knows this business inside and out as a leader. And that's really, really powerful." 

You can watch the DotCom Magazine podcast here.

A few days later, Rick had another fun and informative chat with Podcast celebrity and serial entrepreneur Chris Voss. Chris is a 30+ year serial entrepreneur now operating a podcast network reaching over 300,000 people on social media. Chris only interviews "…guests so smart you may experience brain bleed!"


 

You can watch the Chris Voss podcast here.

Campaign Extension

5 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

LaneAxis is extending its StartEngine campaign until August 31. We had previously announced we would be closing early, on June 30, and are adjusting our strategy to match current circumstances and future goals.

The overwhelming interest in our blockchain solution and integration siphoned off potential equity investors whose curiosity was piqued by this next-generation technology. For this reason, we believe it would be foolhardy to lock the gates now and leave potential LaneAxis investors and their contributions sitting on the outside looking in.

We hope to sell out our campaign well before the new closing date. The additional $1 million+ we will raise by extending the sale will be allocated toward critical marketing initiatives, and we have already allocated those shares toward the cap table.

We remain focused, well-funded, and busy as heck building out the network, building up our revenue, and integrating our blockchain solution.

Thanks again for your support. Make sure to share our campaign page with your friends, family, colleagues and strangers.

As always, we will keep you updated on all company developments and progress milestones.

Best,

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Suporters,

The next time you're on a bus and hear what sounds like a small helicopter landing on the roof, don't panic. It may just be eBay's hitchhiking drone - at least if their patent is approved. LaneAxis already had its patent approved in 2018 - and it gives us a tremendous operational and competitive edge.

Proposed Massive Insurance Hike for Truckers Highlights Need for LaneAxis

6 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders & Supporters,

As you know, LaneAxis is determined to eliminate headaches (and all other bodily and psychological pain points) for all parties involved in the wildly scattershot supply chain.

But we do play favorites.

We’re not shy about stating that our biggest focus is leveling the playing field for America’s small trucking companies – which represent 97% of the industry.

Unfortunately, many small trucking companies may get “leveled” themselves by a proposal winding its way through Congress.


House Highway Bill: The Good, the Bad & That Insurance Increase

On Thursday, June 10, a House Committee advanced the proposed $547 billion Highway Transportation Bill, also known as the “Investing in a New Vision for the Environment and Surface Transportation in America (INVEST in America) Act.” The legislation seeks to modernize the country’s highway infrastructure as well as update and improve the freight transportation sector. A final House vote is anticipated in July. 

From a trucker’s perspective, there’s certainly much to like in the proposal – from improved roads to more parking to a long overdue review of HOS rules – but all the talk in trucking circles surrounds a measure to increase the minimum amount of insurance required for commercial motor vehicles from $750,000 to $2 million (a 167% increase), with the amount to be adjusted for inflation by every five years.

Ouch. 

Proponents say the increased insurance requirements are necessary to reflect an increase in the cost of medical care. They also point out that trucking insurance minimums have remained unchanged for 40 years. 

Opponents of the provision, which include numerous trucking and manufacturing organizations, say the increase will devastate small truckers and put many out of business. Trucking groups also argue that current insurance requirements cover the damages in 99.4% of crashes involving Commercial Motor Vehicles.

 

How LaneAxis Can Help

“LaneAxis is on the side of industry safety and savings,” says Rick Burnett, LaneAxis CEO & Founder. “We understand the contentious nature of insurance rates for truckers. Our goal is to provide carriers and insurance companies with accurate, immutable data – represented in the form of a ‘Performance and Safety Score’ – that quantifies safe driving practices, leading to lower premiums.” 

LaneAxis has developed specific data points that will be stored on the blockchain to develop a data-backed score for drivers and carriers:

 Driver Data Points: 

  1. Commercial Driver License (CDL) status
  2. Number of miles driven
  3. Experience
  4. Total trips
  5. Accident History
  6. On time delivery rate
  7. Performance rating given by Shipper

Carrier Data Points: 

  1. Average Driver ratings
  2. Total shipments
  3. Accident History
  4. Average on-time delivery rate
  5. Carrier performance rating
  6. Average driver experience
  7. Number of drivers
  8. Average ETA between locations
  9. Insurance validation

As we’ve stated before, these formulas are fluid. We will likely add more data points, including government safety records (such as CSA scores – “Compliance, Safety, Accountability”), to fortify the scoring system even further for the benefit of drivers, carriers, insurance companies, and the industry as a whole.

Immutable, verifiable data – such as those displayed below in our platform screenshots – can play a key role in establishing fair and affordable premium rates for carriers moving forward.

FreightVISION App Mobile Verifications

Carrier Portal – Load History


Carrier Portal – Shipment Documents

As mentioned prior, the proposed highway bill has some positive elements for the trucking community. One of them would require officials to review Detention Times – a thorny and very expensive issue for truckers that can literally cost carriers thousands of dollars per month in disputed penalties. The new provision would require regulators to begin collecting data on how long drivers are detained at freight docks, and create a rule within a year to establish limits on the amount of time that a driver may be reasonably detained, unless compensated for the time.

The LaneAxis Network is poised to deliver the very data described in the proposed bill.

 

The Environmental Angle of the New Legislation

The Highway Bill also aims to promote the advancement of cleaner trucking technologies to reduce the industry’s carbon footprint.

LaneAxis is also front and center in this effort, as we described in our recent blog. A Direct Network guided by AI could be a central feature in the renewed push to “clean up trucking.”

Clearing the Air: How LaneAxis Will Help Freight Transportation Reduce its Carbon Footprint

6 months ago


Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters, 

Trucking is changing at a rapid pace. So is the environment. Unfortunately, trucking’s relationship with the environment is, well, complicated — to put it mildly. A Direct Network guided by AI could be a central feature in the renewed push to “clean up trucking.”

Blockchain Data Points; Expanded FreightVISION Functionality

6 months ago


Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

Time is flying as we head down the home stretch of our StartEngine campaign. Less than four weeks to go! Integration of our blockchain solution with the core LaneAxis platform continues to progress swiftly. 

 

Blockchain Data Points

Earlier this week we gave you a high-level view of the data points that will be used to generate rating scores for Drivers, Carriers and Shippers.

This, of course, is mission critical for establishing a real-time, blockchain-powered data funnel that will that will serve every player in the supply chain - and even vested parties on the periphery of the supply chain such as insurance companies and research firms. 

Let’s drill deeper. 


Load History/Data Points Pushed to Blockchain

Above is an example of the  A-Z data sets the blockchain is collecting and quantifying during our current beta testing – from shipment creation through Proof-of-Delivery. These data sets will help determine critical and actionable KPIs that will extend beyond performance scoring to include additional important insights such as loading/unloading times at docks, freight lane metrics and tendencies, and overall shipment efficiencies/inefficiencies. 

Remember, over the “long haul,” LaneAxis will mature into a Transportation Data giant. We will never waver from our goal of improving the lives of independent Truckers and reducing headaches for Shippers – but the long-term future of LaneAxis is Big Data. The fact is, quantifiable, immutable industry-wide data sets such as those described here simply do not exist today.

Without question, Driver, Carrier and Shipper performance ratings will be one of the most sought after products in our suite of information services. These ratings will underpin the “trust quotient” required for Shippers and Carriers to do meaningful business together.

Let’s dive into the weeds a bit to look at the specific data points that will determine the rating scores for Drivers, Shippers and Carriers.

 

Driver Data Points: 

  1. Commercial Driver License (CDL) status
  2. Number of miles driven
  3. Experience
  4. Total trips
  5. On time delivery rate
  6. Performance rating given by Shipper


Carrier Data Points: 

  1. Average Driver ratings
  2. Total shipments
  3. Average on-time delivery rate
  4. Carrier performance rating
  5. Average driver experience
  6. Number of drivers
  7. Average ETA between locations
  8. Insurance validation

 

Shipper Data Points:

  1. Performance rating given by Carrier/Driver
  2. Total shipments
  3. Wait times at locations
  4. Average ETA between locations

These are fluid formulas that will likely be adjusted over time based on user feedback and additional multiple data points that can be obtained from a variety of sources such as Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs).


FreightVISION Mobile App Updates

The FreightVISION Mobile App – which is directly tied to the Shipper and Carrier management portals - is also maturing to extend beyond basic navigation tools and load information. The app itself is now a management portal all its own, featuring much of the shipment management functionality that exists on the desktop version. 


FreightVISION App Shipment Management – All Load Details



FreightVISION App Shipment Management – Mobile Access to Load Documents

Whether it’s desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile – LaneAxis is making it easy for Transportation and Logistics managers to keep track of their shipments anywhere, anytime.

“Respect the Truck” Campaign

6 months ago


Hello #LaneAxisNation,

We’ve said it many times: our mission to transform freight transportation is personal. Our CEO & Founder is a former partner in a trucking company. Our founding shareholders and advisors have deep roots in trucking and transportation.

Make no mistake: we aim for all-encompassing success – financial and otherwise – for the LaneAxis Direct Network. 

But it is independent truckers/owner-operators who we truly want to elevate to new levels of success and well-being.

That is why we are launching a new initiative called “Respect the Truck.” 

Independent Drivers see their trucks as an extension of themselves. Their trucks are second homes – especially for long haul drivers. They sleep there, they eat there, sometimes for weeks at a time. A cab and full trailer represents a source of pride and protection for drivers. Mess with their truck – you mess with them. When you respect the truck – you respect the Trucker.

We will start rolling out specific benefits of the “Respect the Truck” program in the coming weeks. But high on the list of goals for this initiative is Driver Wellness.


Health & Wealth – Attainable Goals for Drivers?

Of course being a long haul driver is a nomadic lifestyle often requiring weeks away from home. Drivers have to battle brokers and a broken system to earn a fair paycheck – something the LaneAxis Direct Network is working in earnest to fix. 

Drivers must also battle grueling challenges on the road, and the toll it takes on their well-being.

From finding parking to powering through tiredness/exhaustion to reach a destination before “Running out of Hours” – Drivers are constantly battling mental and physical fatigue, which leads to a litany of bad health outcomes.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), truck drivers are categorically one of the unhealthiest populations in the U.S. The average life expectancy of long haul drivers is just 61 years old. The current life expectancy for all U.S. males is 75.1 years. For females, it is 80.5 years. That is a horrifying statistic.

Additionally, the CDC estimates:

  • More than 50 percent of truck drivers are obese, compared to the national rate of 26.7 percent. 
  • Compared to the general population, the prevalence of diabetes in Truckers is 50 percent higher.
  • 87 percent of truck drivers have hypertension or pre-hypertension, compared to the national average of 58.3 percent.


LaneAxis Wants to Improve Driver’s Lives – in Multiple Ways

Drivers have been maligned and mistreated for far too long. LaneAxis wants to put more money in their pockets, give them more time at home, and help them get healthier.

As part of our “Respect the Truck” initiative, we’ll be turning to one of our founding shareholders, Carl “Coach” Hargrave - who will help us launch the “Truckercize” program.

Carl “Coach” Hargrave | LaneAxis Shareholder and former NFL Coach

Coach Carl was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in 1976. He eventually transitioned into coaching, first as an assistant at the major college level for 18 years, then as an assistant in the NFL for 11 years. Forging a lifelong relationship with legendary Head Coach Dennis Green, Coach Carl served as an assistant under coach Green with the Minnesota Vikings from 1994-2001, then worked again under Green with the Arizona Cardinals from 2004-2006.

Carl is also lifelong friends with LaneAxis CEO & Founder Rick Burnett. Oh, and Carl’s brother is a truck driver – so it’s personal for him too. Coach Carl has a passion for health and wellness, and he will bring that passion and experience to helping all Truckers in the LaneAxis Network improve their lives by improving their health. Stay tuned for more details on the “Truckercize” program.

 

A Chance to Express “Respect the Truck” Pride

As mentioned in a recent community update, LaneAxis has established its own online store, which you can visit here: https://laneaxislabel.com/.

We will soon be offering “Respect the Truck” t-shirts and hats – which you can preorder now! Available in a variety of different styles, we hope our Network Drivers will wear this gear as a sign of pride in what they do and what their truck represents. Here’s a sneak peek at the designs that will soon be available for purchase.


T-SHIRTS


 

 




HATS




Again, you can preorder your “Respect the Truck” gear now by visiting https://laneaxislabel.com/.  Enter promo code "RESPECT" (all caps) to earn 10% off your entire order.

We’ll introduce more facets of the “Respect the Truck” initiative in the near future.

Thanks again for your support #LaneAxisNation. 

Don’t forget, we’re down to the final few weeks of our StartEngine campaign – June 30 we shut down. If you haven’t already, click the green “Buy Now” button to become a LaneAxis Shareholder and help improve the entire supply chain – including improving the lives of hard-working independent truckers.

LaneAxis Nation Update for June, 2021

6 months ago


For ALL Things going on in #LaneAxisNation please visit www.laneaxis.com.

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

OUR STARTENGINE CAMPAIGN ENDS AT THE END OF THIS MONTH – JUNE 30. 

To our 3,100+ investors who have contributed to our current crowdfund campaign – and to our 5,000+ Shareholders overall – a massive THANK YOU.

To our nearly 9,000 followers on StartEngine – Ladies and Gentlemen, you are on the clock.

Now… on to our Progress Report.


Blockchain Integration

Our blockchain integration is generating tremendous excitement as we approach our Phase One Shipper Pilot Program - currently scheduled to begin July 1. We’ve engaged 80 in-Network Shippers to run multiple loads with multiple in-Network Carriers. We will test all aspects of the blockchain functionality, implement necessary and suggested changes (from both Shippers and Carriers), then begin the blockchain integration in earnest. We’ll keep you posted as we approach the Pilot launch date, and of course share the results with our community. 


Driver/Shipper/Carrier Ratings

We have finalized the formula for establishing Driver, Carrier, and Shipper Ratings – which will all be stored on the blockchain. These scores are primarily data-driven, but as with most things, there is a human element involved – thus we take user input and user scores into account. Therefore, “Finalized” is a flexible term.

Here are the basic factors and ratios used to determine performance ratings. As with all AI, the system will learn as the system matures.

 

Driver Ratings:

In consultation with our blockchain development partners, we have developed the following formula for establishing Rating Scores for Drivers:

·    40% -  SHIPPER/RECEIVER RATING DRIVER PERFORMANCE - At the end of each delivery.

·    30% - PUNCTUALITY RATING: Generated from pickup and delivery dates/times (valid exceptions excluded). 

·    30% -  GEOTAGGED DRIVING DATA: Geotagged data with adherence to routes, average speed and other key driving indicators

The Ratings will be generated by the system for every Driver on the network, using a pre-determined equation. 

Carrier Rating:

Carrier ratings will be determined by the average rating of all its drivers. The ratings will be available to view and publish on Shipper and Driver Profiles.

Shipper Rating:

Shipper ratings will be determined by the average rating of all its Shipments by Drivers/Carriers. All disputes/exceptions will be taken into account. The ratings will be available to view and publish on Carrier and Driver profiles. The Shipper will be able to see the rating for a Carrier and Driver based on Subscription

Social Growth

It may sound hyperbolic, but LaneAxis truly is turning momentum into a movement.

Our social media footprint continues to grow:

Social Media Support (as of 6/1/2021): 

  • Twitter: 4,900 followers
  • Facebook: 2500+ Followers
  • Telegram:1,616 members, 141 online
  • Current StartEngine Campaign Followers (who have not purchased): 8.73K. For shame. 
  • Current StartEngine Campaign Investors: 3.16K

LaneAxis Campaign Ends Soon

6 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

The final countdown is on.

One month from today we will end our current fundraising campaign and shift gears to focus squarely on transforming the freight transportation industry – not just in the U.S. – but globally.

To the 3,000+ investors who have participated in this round – and our 5,000+ total shareholders – thank you.

And to our 8.6 thousand followers – thank you as well. We appreciate your window shopping the LaneAxis solution. 

But now’s the time to commit. 

LaneAxis is riding more than momentum – it is now riding a movement – a movement of fed up truckers, fed up shippers/suppliers, and fed up consumers who know the supply chain can and should be better. A sloppy supply chain hurts everyone. A Direct Freight Network underpinned by blockchain technology helps everyone.

Hit the green “Invest Now” button at the top of the page to invest today.

  

 

For those who enjoy some light but insightful reading, we offer this story from NPR. It offers the very fair, but rarely asked, question about the perpetual “driver shortage” supposedly crippling trucking. 

The question is this: “Is this a Driver Shortage problem, or a Driver Retention problem?”

From the article: “In a capitalist system, where you can pay people to do basically anything, how is it even possible to have a worker shortage for multiple decades?... The average annual turnover rate for long-haul truckers at big trucking companies has been greater than 90% for decades.”

The real “hook” of this article was the modestly-viral story that recently circulated about a trucking company in Texas that was apparently offering truck drivers $14,000 per week - $728,000 per year – because of the nationwide shortage of drivers.

Of course there was much more to the story.

“The most productive drivers, the company says, can bring in up to $14,000 a week. But with this money, they have to cover all the costs of their truck, fuel, insurance, equipment, repair and maintenance. Even if they're able to haul enough loads in the boom-and-bust oil fields of remote West Texas to earn $14,000, drivers take home much less.”

“Compared with other blue-collar occupations, the median annual income of trucking is actually pretty good: $47,130. But long-haul truckers commonly work extremely long hours, often 60 to 70 hours per week or more. And drivers are typically not paid by the hour. Instead, they are typically paid only for the number of miles they drive. The average truck driver gets paid 52.3 cents per mile, according to the Department of Transportation. Even if weather or traffic slows them down and extends their working day, they get paid the same. Moreover, they're not compensated for the significant time it takes to load or unload their trucks. And they're not compensated for their "off time," even though they're miles and miles away from home.”

Compelling stuff. And issues that the LaneAxis Direct Network seeks to fix – and will. Yes, there is merit to the narrative of a “driver shortage.” But ultimately, there are literally millions of truckers and millions of shippers – EVERY SINGLE DAY -  who are looking to move loads. They just can’t find each other, at least not without paying a price to a middleman. 

LaneAxis is not a dating website for the supply chain industry. We facilitate introductions – then guide both parties through every step of a shipment – introducing them to unprecedented transparency, automation, and profit potential they never imagined possible.

One month to go #LaneAxisNation. Let’s do this.

LaneAxis vs. "The Competition": an Assessment

6 months ago


The LaneAxis team is often asked how we compare to this product or that platform or how we match up against giants like Uber Freight.

The answer is generally the same: we don’t compare. That’s because we don’t believe we have any true, direct competition out there.

Reminders

The LaneAxis StartEngine campaign ends JUNE 30.

Important note: Make sure to "reconfirm" your investment if you receive an email from StartEngine requesting you to do so.

Shipper/Carrier Pilot Update

6 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholder and Supporters,

We've finalized the details for our upcoming Shipper Pilot Program. This is a very important initiative for LaneAxis as we push forward with implementation of our blockchain solution with our core SaaS platform. Brokerless. 

We've engaged 80 in-network shippers to participate in the pilot, which is now scheduled to commence July 1. We will continue the pilot program through August to ensure 100% system functionality - and ultimately 100% system confidence for our Shippers and Carriers.

Below is the official pilot program guideline document.

Campaign End in Sight; LaneAxis Store Now Open; Shipper Portal Updates

7 months ago


Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

Our announcement that we’ll be closing our campaign early on June 30 has been met with overwhelmingly positive reaction. Why? Because our Shareholders appreciate our desire (and passion) to focus exclusively on expanding the LaneAxis platform in every possible way – as soon as possible.


Why Close Early?

The main impetus for us making this decision is so we can focus on our core, long-term objectives. The LaneAxis Team will spend the second half of 2021 laser focused on system improvements, blockchain integration, building out the network, and building up our revenue streams. Just like many of you (especially in the transportation business) – we don’t like to wait.

By shifting our resources from campaign management to accelerating platform and network expansion, all parties with vested interests in LaneAxis benefit – from shareholders to shippers to truckers and even consumers. The industry is starving for our solution, and we want to stay focused on feeding that appetite as soon as possible.

Again, we remain fully committed to selling out by June 30. Our marketing and community outreach efforts will continue at full speed. 


Core System Updates

In our most recent update, we showed you the newest portal designs from the Carrier Dashboard. This week, we are showing you the latest designs from the Shipper Dashboard. These designs will all be pushed live in the next couple of weeks.


Shipper Portal: Live Load - Driver on Time

Shipper Portal: Shipment/Driver Quick View

Shipper Portal: Bidding Management Page

Shipper Portal: Completed Shipment & Load History

 

LaneAxis Store Now Open – Show Your LaneAxis Pride!

#LaneAxisNation continues to spread love and positive vibes throughout the interwebs. This week we received a wonderful message from LaneAxis supporter John DeFriese of Wentzville, Missouri. John’s son has already signed up his trucking company with the LaneAxis Network. Here’s John posing for a couple of pictures with one of his son’s trucks. Look closely, and you’ll see John is sporting a LaneAxis hat!

Thanks for the love John! 

So where did he pick up that cool lid? At our brand new LaneAxis Store of course!

That’s right, our LaneAxis Label Store is now open on Shopify. Click here to visit: www.LaneAxislabel.com.

Currently you can pick up cool hats and t-shirts. We’ll soon be adding more items, including LaneAxis branding with our distinctive “X” logo.

For a limited time we are offering a 10% discount on all purchases! Just enter discount code LANEAXISNATION (all caps) at checkout and enjoy a price break.

We encourage all our supporters to show off your LaneAxis gear by taking pictures/selfies and posting them on social. Make sure to tag LaneAxis and use the hashtag #LaneAxisNation. 

Let’s get our image and enthusiasm out there!


Closing Reminders

Don’t forget to mark your calendar: The LaneAxis StartEngine campaign ends JUNE 30.

And a very important note: Make sure to "reconfirm" your investment if you receive an email from StartEngine requesting you to do so.

Closing Date for StartEngine Campaign; Circle Payment Integration; Shipper Pilot Program Details

7 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Followers,

As you all know, LaneAxis is operating at full-speed on the engineering, implementation and testing of our blockchain-backed Direct Network. We also continue to refine and improve our core software system, FreightVISION mobile app, and are continuing to onboard large numbers of new Carriers and Shippers every week.

These are the primary reasons we have set an official end date for our StartEngine fundraising campaign.

 

StartEngine Sale Ending June 30

We’re proud to say our StartEngine campaign has been one of the highest-momentum projects on the crowdfunding platform since our launch on March 15. 

Managing and monitoring this campaign is time and labor intensive – a labor of love to be sure. We have devoted full-time resources to managing the campaign.

Having said that, we are ready to focus squarely on the mission at hand: completing our core software updates, integrating the blockchain and smart contracts into the platform, continuing the rapid expansion of our network Carrier and Shipper base, and of course, increasing our revenue and company valuation. 

For these reasons and more, we will be ending our StartEngine equity crowdfund campaign on June 30. Make no mistake, we remain fully committed to selling out by that date. Our marketing and community outreach efforts will continue unabated. 

Our strategy now is to close out this phase of fundraising and focus the entire second half of 2021 on the platform and growing the network.

Make sure you let family members, friends, colleagues and total strangers know that their chance to invest in the future of transportation is winding down! With your help we will close out strong and on-time.

Please note: If you receive an email from StartEngine to reconfirm your investment (based on our new closing date), make sure to confirm right away to be a part of our campaign!

Circle Payment Integration

We’re pleased to announce we will soon be integrating with CIRCLE, a blockchain-focused payment processing company. Circle will facilitate settlement payments between Shippers and Carriers – and critically will dramatically reduce transaction fees that are currently consumed by Stripe.

Circle combines the benefits of blockchain with traditional forms of payments like cards and banks. Their solution is so well-regarded, they can now count VISA as one of their primary clients. 


Shipper Pilot Program Launching Soon

LaneAxis has a newly engineered Shipper-Carrier Smart Contract that is ready to deploy in real-world situations. We are onboarding 80 shippers from the LaneAxis Network to conduct a pilot run of our end-to-end shipment platform including - and especially - our smart contract, load level milestone verifications, and overall blockchain functionality. The pilot is scheduled for mid-June.


Key Discovery Points


Smart Contracts

A smart contract is a self-executing contract with the terms of the agreement between Shipper and Carrier being directly written into lines of code. The code and the agreements contained therein exist across a distributed blockchain network.


Proof of Custody

A Smart Contract enables Proof of Custody on a shipment. The implementation of a Smart Contract for shipments on a blockchain enables tracking of all temporary ownership changes on a shipment between a Shipper, Carrier, Driver and Receiver. 


How does a Smart Contract work on a Shipment?

When a rate from a Carrier is confirmed on a shipment, the Shipment creates a Smart Contract. This Smart Contract created on the blockchain starts monitoring the chain of custody on the shipment. The Smart Contract then validates various milestones on a shipment: namely shipment delivery, flagging disputes and, finally, payment settlement.


Core System Updates

It’s not all just about the blockchain! Our software engineers and designers continue to make great strides in optimizing and improving our core software platform and FreightVISION Driver App.

Below is a sneak peek of a pair of new designs soon to be pushed live:

 Carrier Portal: Active Shipments

Carrier Portal: Active Bids

Commitment Issues: How LaneAxis Helps Shippers Avoid Costly Long-Term Carrier Contracts

7 months ago


Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Followers,

Shippers often grapple with "commitment issues" - namely committing to long-term carrier contracts out of fear they won't be able to find capacity down the road. LaneAxis solves this pain point. Read more in our latest blog.

Don’t forget:

  • Shareholder Only Token Sale ends May 31
  • AXIS Token listed on Decentralized Exchange June 1.
  • AXIS Token listed on Centralized Exchange July 1

Check out our previous campaign update for more details.

Remember, ONLY LaneAxis shareholders can purchase AXIS Tokens at the pre-listing price. Click the green “Invest Now” button at the top of the page to purchase LaneAxis shares now!

Blockchain Phase One Pilot Scheduled for Mid-June with 80 Shippers; AXIS Token Listing Dates

7 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Followers,

The LaneAxis Team continues to passionately work hard to meet our roadmap deadlines. We’re excited to announce some big updates, starting off with…

Shareholder-Only AXIS Token Sale Ending 

All good things must come to an end – and the end is now approaching for our Exclusive “Shareholder-Only” AXIS Token pre-listing sale. MAY 31 will be the last day LaneAxis shareholders can purchase AXIS Tokens before our listing on the exchanges. 

Tokens are currently priced at $.25 cents each – but we will continue to offer shareholders a 20% discount through May 31. The listing price, which will be higher than $.25 cents, will be determined in consultation with our “market maker” partners. Due to popular demand requests from Shareholders, we have lowered the minimum purchase amount for AXIS Tokens to $300 - which will equate to 1,500 AXIS Tokens. Remember – ONLY LaneAxis shareholders can purchase AXIS Tokens via our token website: axistoken.io.

 

Token Listing Dates Set

On JUNE 1ST we will list the AXIS Token on a "Decentralized Exchange" (DEX) known as Uniswap. Decentralized exchanges allow peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions to take place online securely and without the need for an intermediary. A DEX essentially connects cryptocurrency buyers and sellers, offering cheaper transaction fees, greater privacy, and greater security than traditional centralized exchanges.

On JULY 1ST  we will list the AXIS Token on a traditional centralized exchange. The specifics of which exchange we’re listing on are forthcoming. Centralized exchanges act as a trusted intermediary to facilitate trades and store tokens securely. The exchange maintains customer accounts, facilitates transactions and provides other services to help users. Centralized exchanges are far more prevalent in the space than Decentralized exchanges, having matured over the years to accumulate users, trust, liquidity, and a more feature-rich user interface.

Again, stay tuned for further details.  Next, we are very excited to start Phase One of the Blockchain and Token deployment in the network…

 

Pilot Program with 80 Shippers to test Blockchain, Smart Contract, and AXIS Token functionality.

In mid-June we’re hitting the road with 80 of our In-Network Shippers as part of a Phase one pilot program to test our end-to-end shipment platform – particularly our blockchain and AXIS Token integration. Our focus will be on executing our smart contract, initial implementation of the AXIS Token as a load level verification tool, and the overall blockchain functionality to quantify the various utilities that will drive the AXIS Token’s value.

 

Pilot Description: The LaneAxis Direct Freight Network is the first in the Transportation industry to implement blockchain as a proof-of-custody to track Shipments in real-time with the phase one network visibility.

Purpose:  In phase one, 80 Shippers will run loads utilizing the Network Smart Contract directly with the Carriers. Rate negotiations and confirmation, milestone confirmations, and full end-to-end shipment lifecycle e-docs will all be stored on the blockchain. Level two data is all the user data that the network is crunching and monetizing via the AXIS token. This will enable us to start providing data driven utilities of the AXIS Token.  

Process: 

  1. Educate Pilot Shippers on blockchain implementation for tracking shipments and identifying proof of custody including Smart Contracts created on the shipment for governance via email and phone.
  2. Have the Shippers create shipments in the system. 
  3. Monitor and track the shipments for successful delivery and final payment release to the Carriers.
  4. Gather feedback and list improvement opportunities from Shippers and Carriers.
  5. Implement those Improvements to strengthen and further optimize the platform.

 

Goals: 

  1. The goal is to achieve 100% transparency and a flawless experience on shipments from creation to delivery and final settlement between Shippers and Carriers in the system.
  2. Identify any improvement opportunities and implement them in a timely fashion, which will set the stage to start scaling the network growth.


Ethereum Layer 2 Solution

We also have an important update regarding our blockchain architecture. LaneAxis will be deploying our blockchain protocol on what is known as “Ethereum Layer 2.” 

The AXIS Token is an ERC20 standard token that exists on the Ethereum blockchain. Lately, due to explosive growth in its use, the transaction fees (aka gas fees) on the Ethereum network have skyrocketed to new highs. The cost of transferring an ERC token in USD can be as high as $20 per transaction. 

A Layer Two solution takes some of the transactions off the main Ethereum blockchain to a parallel network, and only reports the minimal required information to the Ethereum main net. The end result is significantly reduced gas fees (up to 100x lower) and much quicker transaction throughput.

Ethereum Layer 2 integrated with “Optimism” Application

We will also be utilizing one of the most interesting Layer 2 solutions called “Optimism”,  which is an application inside of Ethereum that executes transactions more efficiently than Ethereum itself. 

Optimism has gained massive traction and attention recently. Uniswap v3 – the most popular decentralized finance protocol on Ethereum - will be run on the Optimism layer two stack.  

Ensuring scalability and usability of the LaneAxis blockchain solution and keeping the transaction costs down has always been a priority. The AXIS token, just like Uniswap and many other Ethereum products, will run on this L2 solution, providing low transfer fees and fast transaction throughput.

Shipment Flow Utilizing Smart Contract

Our Supporters Really “Get It”

We continue to receive a flood of love via our comments section, Contact Us form, direct email, and social media. 

We wanted to highlight this comment from shareholder Kelly Messick. It’s rewarding to know that even someone not close to the trucking industry sees the gross inadequacies baked into it, and what LaneAxis is doing to dismantle and rebuild it.



Thanks again #LaneAxisNation! Together we are going to transform this industry.

Don’t forget:

  • Shareholder Only Token Sale ends May 31. 
  • AXIS Token listed on Decentralized Exchange June 1.
  • AXIS Token listed on Centralized Exchange July 1.

It bears repeating: ONLY LaneAxis shareholders can purchase AXIS Tokens at the pre-listing price. Click the green “Invest Now” button at the top of the page to purchase LaneAxis shares. 

Best,

-Team LaneAxis

May 2021 Newsletter - LaneAxis Progress Update

7 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

Whew. April was quite a month. As always, we’ve done our best to keep you informed with regular updates. Now that we’ve moved into May, let’s make sure you’re caught up on all the accomplishments of the past few weeks.



$2 Million Raised in 6 Weeks

Boasting a groundswell of support from traditional investors, blockchain enthusiasts, and the independent trucking community, this week LaneAxis hit the $2 million mark in its Reg CF Crowdfund - just 6 weeks into the campaign! LaneAxis is one of the highest-momentum projects on StartEngine, and just like in 2020 – we anticipate reaching our fundraising cap early.

 

Network & Revenue Growth

LaneAxis averaged between 1,000 to 2,000 new carriers on-boarded per week in April. We’d previously forecast on-boarding 1,000 to 2,000 carriers PER MONTH. The word is spreading fast and we are being approached by numerous organizations in the trucking, supply chain and crypto sectors who are interested in partnering with us in a variety of ways.

Revenue is increasing at a rapid rate, we are a profitable company, and we have yet to unleash numerous other revenue streams. 

Our exploding support from investors and carriers has begun to take a life of its own. We are dubbing this community of supporters and evangelists “LaneAxis Nation.”

 

Core System Updates

We continue to refine the UI/UX of our core LaneAxis system -  both the backend dashboards and and FreightVISION app - while also adding new features.

LaneAxis Network: Carriers and Shippers can now view the location of their search results on a map and can view profile details to establish a quick network connection. 

We've just pushed out our latest FreightVISION Driver app updates on iOS and Android. Upgrades include:

  • Shipper Network search
  • Shipper Network Management
  • Shipper and Carrier Contract and Certificate of Insurance (COI) Management
  • Improved notifications on Bids, Shipment Status, Messages and more.

We also continue to refine the backend shipment management portal for Shippers and Carriers.

 


BLOCKCHAIN AND AXIS TOKEN

As the StartEngine campaign continues to soar, so too does the interest in the LaneAxis Blockchain and AXIS Token, which is integrated into the core LaneAxis Network system. The AXIS Token prelisting sale has been a tremendous success, with token buyers flocking to www.axistoken.io to scoop up as many tokens as they can. Currently, only LaneAxis shareholders have exclusive rights to purchase the AXIS Utility Token.

“We are definitely working overtime to keep up with all the AXIS Token purchase requests we’re receiving,” says Mason Burnett, LaneAxis Chief Operations Officer. “The token will have a wide variety of important uses within the network ecosystem, and it’s clear our token purchasers understand the value of that.”


Important Note: The AXIS Token price will increase from its current price of $.25 cents to $.30 cents on May 15th. Remember, only LaneAxis Shareholders can purchase AXIS Tokens. Visit www.axistoken.io to learn more, including the shareholder discount. We are now on track to list the token on cryptocurrency exchanges in early Q3.

 Praise for (and from) PixelPlex

LaneAxis’ primary blockchain engineering partner, PixelPlex, is putting the finishing touches on the updated LaneAxis White Paper, which will delve into the details of how the blockchain network will function. PixelPlex has built systems for corporate titans such as Oracle, Mercedes-Benz, and Swissbank. Recently, another of PixelPlex’s blockchain clients – VeChain – has been in the news for reaching all time highs amid meteoric growth. The price of VeChain’s native coin – VET – has increased more than 400% over the past two months. VeChain’s market cap currently stands at over $12 billion dollars, placing the company at #13 on CoinMarketCap.


“Our team places transparency, efficiency, and safety at the top of our priorities," says Alexei Dulub, CEO & Founder of PixelPlex. "That’s why we are particularly proud to partner with LaneAxis and help them transform the supply chain industry with blockchain technology. We look forward to seeing how LaneAxis changes the game using disruptive technologies to eliminate major pains and modernize obsolete processes, making another step into a future decentralized economy.”


The fact that Pixelplex built the blockchain backbone for VeChain should excite every LaneAxis Shareholder and AXIS Token holder. Pixelplex is the real deal. They only work with the best because they are the best.


Testimonials

We continue to receive so much positive feedback from our investment AND carrier communities. This truly adds fuel to our fire. We thought we’d share a few of them with you:

 

“I am so excited with this company and the company’ future. I have wanted to do what LaneAxis is doing for over 15 years now. The amount and duration of empty trucks on the roadways has always upset me. The company I work for has about 5-10 18-wheelers a day leaving without product. Once again thank you for your time and I wish for great success for LaneAxis.”
 
-Mark G.

“Keep up the momentum and great work in this space. Once this nut is cracked, I see huge potential for the same technology in shipping within the Oil and Gas industry. We can discuss at the appropriate time. Good Luck and Keep Going!"
 
-Roger G.

“I invested in the first round along with this round. I also bought the tokens with the 30% bonus tokens. You are doing an awesome job. I believe in your mission to revolutionize the trucking industry for fair play between large and small transport industries. [The LaneAxis] team are truly building the future transportation in the world.”
 
-Hip H.

Looking ahead to the new month, we’ll be releasing our much-anticipated blockchain white paper soon. We hope to announce new partnerships. And we have a special announcement coming up on May 11th regarding important upgrades to the platform. 

As always, we will continue to keep you informed on any and all important updates.

Let’s keep this momentum going LaneAxis Nation!


Best,

 

-Team LaneAxis

$2 Million Reached in 6 weeks; Breaking Down the Network Payment System

7 months ago


Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

$2 million raised in 6 weeks! Thank you LaneAxis Nation. Our campaign remains one of the hottest on StartEngine. More than 2,300+ investors are now backing our project, and we remain focused on closing out this campaign ahead of schedule – just like last year!

 

A Stabilizing Force: How LaneAxis is Utilizing “Stablecoins” to Streamline and Secure Network Transactions

We wanted to take the time to explain a bit more about our alternative network payment option and the AXIS token.

It’s no secret that engineering a blockchain system and the tokenomics around it is complicated stuff. But we are focused on making the process as smooth and simple as possible for our end-users. This is a “must have” requirement. 

Our dev team – in partnership with our blockchain engineering partners at PixelPlex – have spent extensive time developing a network payment system (i.e. Shippers paying Carriers following a successful delivery).


The LaneAxis platform is implementing a stablecoin solution for network payments. Stablecoin is a crypto token that derives its value from an underlying asset, in this case, the USD. Each stablecoin is pegged to one US dollar, and it will be used to automate the payment flow using smart contracts. Operations, such as payments, escrow services, and AXIS token trading, will benefit from this streamlined approach. It will also eliminate volatility in shipment prices and keep the price fixed once a direct negotiation is made between a shipper and carrier. Each user in the system won't need to have any prior experience in blockchain or crypto - they will be able to buy the stablecoin and AXIS token within the portal and will still use the system the same as they are today.  

Remember, the stablecoin process will only be used for network payments. The AXIS utility token remains the lifeblood of this digital ecosystem and its central payment mechanism. Here’s a snapshot of the myriad use-cases requiring payment via AXIS Token:


You can visit www.axistoken.io to learn more.

We are covering every base to ensure the best possible experience for our end-users, and the most streamlined and cost-effective solutions for our company and shareholders. 

Stay tuned for a major announcement coming May 11th

Important Note: The AXIS Token price will increase to $.30 cents on May 15th. Remember, only LaneAxis Shareholders can purchase AXIS Tokens.

We are future-proofing the LaneAxis platform from every angle. Make sure you are part of that future! Click the green “Invest Now” button to buy LaneAxis shares now!

Network & Revenue Growth; AXIS Token Taking Off

7 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

It’s been another great week. Let’s get to it.

Network & Revenue

LaneAxis added more than 2,000+ Carriers to the network THIS WEEK ALONE. The word is spreading fast and we are being approached by numerous organizations in the trucking, supply chain and crypto sectors who are interested in partnering with us in a variety of different ways.

Revenue is increasing at a rapid rate, we are a profitable company, and we have yet to open the spigot on numerous other revenue streams. When you combine our network growth, revenue growth, token sales, and StartEngine sales - our momentum is simply undeniable, and we believe unstoppable.

AXIS Token & Blockchain

Updated AXIS Token Design

We are putting the finishing touches on the new LaneAxis Blockchain White Paper. This will answer all technical questions about the integration of the Direct Network with the blockchain, AXIS Token, and FreightVISION App – and crucially how they will all work together. We have previously given you a high level description, but this will allow you dive deep into the technical weeds. We will share the new white paper in one to two weeks.

Our AXIS Tokens have been selling like hotcakes – with the vast majority of recent sales being made by LaneAxis Shareholders. A huge thank you for your support. Although our public pre-listing sale has ended, LaneAxis shareholders still have exclusive rights to purchase AXIS Tokens. Visit www.axistoken.io to learn more.

We often boast about the strength of our blockchain development partners – and with good reason. In our last update, we showed you a list of previous clients from our primary blockchain engineering partner Pixelplex. That list included such titans as Oracle, Mercedes Benz, and Swisscom.

Recently another of Pixelplex’s clients – VeChain – has been in the news for reaching all time highs amid new partnerships and integrations.

Subject: Hours to Go: Shareholder Token Bonus & Public Pre-Sale Ends Today

8 months ago

AXIS Token Public Pre-Sale Ends Today

Hello LaneAxis Community,

Today we’re turning off the ability for the general public to purchase AXIS Tokens prior to our listing on cryptocurrency exchanges, which we are still targeting for late Q1 - possibly early Q2.

Today also marks the LAST CHANCE for LaneAxis shareholders to earn a 30% bonus on Token purchases at the current price of $.15 cents per token.

BOTH THE PUBLIC PRE-SALE AND SHAREHOLDER 30% BONUS END AT MIDNIGHT TONIGHT (12am PDT, 4/22/2021).

As of tomorrow, 4/22/2021, ONLY LaneAxis shareholders will be allowed to purchase AXIS Tokens prior to our exchange listing.

However – the token price will be increasing from $.15 cents per token to $.25 cents per token. We will be offering a shareholder discount, but it will be lower than 30%. 

In other words, we strongly encourage LaneAxis shareholders to take advantage of this offer now, so you can stock up on as many tokens as possible. Our anticipated listing price will likely be significantly higher than $.25 cents.

LaneAxis is truly running full steam right now on both our core platform and blockchain integration. Our primary blockchain development partner, PixelPlex, is finalizing all aspects of the Token and blockchain engineering process. 

Here’s a glimpse at some of our latest designs:

Updated LaneAxis Smart Contract

Trucker Testimonials & Medium Article

8 months ago


Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

At the end of the day, a company trying to break new ground must absolutely rely on those whose impact will be most felt. In our case, this group is largely the roughly 4 million+ independent truckers/Owner-Operators of America.

In our most recent announcement, we shared the exciting news with you that our carrier signup rate has exploded. Here’s a nice (objective) writeup about it on Medium from one of our shareholders, who happens to specialize in Startups, Investing and Finance.

The enthusiasm we are feeling from the investment community is equally shared by our carrier community. Here are a couple of unsolicited messages we’ve received from carriers who have joined our network over the past few days: 

“As a person involved in the trucking industry, and as a small business owner, I am Looking forward for LanesAxis to exploding in the coming years! The business model is phenomenal! 

Thank you 

SK”


Facebook Message

Independent Trucker Jay Brock sent us a video from his cab discussing the value of a brokerless direct network:


Even our social is blowing up! We added an extra 100 followers on Instagram in less than 24 hours. 

Let’s keep this momentum going LaneAxis Nation! We have an industry starving for change, and we’re building the community and capability to make it happen.

Carrier Registration Exploding as Network Revenue Growth Surges

8 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

Whether you’re a trucker, shipper, or investor - it’s a great time to be involved in the LaneAxis Direct Network. We are making major strides on all critical fronts.

CARRIER SIGNUP GROWTH EXPLOSION

As we’ve often said – building a massive carrier base is one of the most important foundational steps in launching a successful direct freight network. Small carriers represent the TRUE market network - with 97% of trucking companies made up of owner-operators or fleets of just a handful of trucks. This is a 1.4 million+ Carrier Network we are unifying!

We are proud to say we are exceeding our goals…  

Currently LaneAxis is onboarding between 200-300 new carriers PER DAY. In our April 1st newsletter we forecast onboarding up to 2,000 new carriers per month beginning this month. Scratch that. We are now on pace to activate 6,000 to 10,000 carriers per month.

This massive surge in carrier interest is based on numerous factors including our industry partnerships, advertising, and word-of-mouth. But most critically, capital injection enabled us to 20X the daily SMS text campaign spend targeting our database of those 1.4 million carriers. We are sending out tens of thousands of text messages per day, and the ROI on this significant marketing spend has been tremendous. We are expanding our carrier management team to handle this influx of new customers. 

As new carriers come in, hundreds of direct connection requests to shippers are going out. Our outbound call center continues to onboard shippers at an accelerated pace. As our carrier network grows into the tens of thousands, we will begin approaching some of the largest shipping companies in the country (and world). LaneAxis’ will leverage its deep industry connections via our shareholders and advisors to recruit these companies. Our ultimate goal is to create a “network effect” where NOT joining LaneAxis is a detrimental business decision. Our strategy is to build a “moat” around the LaneAxis platform, and we are well on our way. Just for reference: our original shareholder group includes former logistics executives for Walmart and ConAgra Foods (now Conagra Brands). In other words, our connections run deep.

 

OOIDA TESTING

As mentioned, word of mouth regarding the LaneAxis Network has spread fast - so much so that the largest independent trucker organization in the country, The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) reached out to us to request beta testing of our system and initiate preliminary talks of a potential partnership. 

OOIDA is an international trade association representing the interests of independent owner-operators and professional drivers on all issues that affect truckers. More than 150,000 members of OOIDA are men and women in all 50 states and Canada who collectively own and/or operate more than 240,000 individual heavy-duty trucks and small truck fleets. OOIDA is heavily active in Washington D.C., lobbying aggressively on behalf of independent truckers and owner-operators, most recently on the issue of broker abuse and unfair business practices. OOIDA has expressed deep support for our stated mission of eliminating Freight Brokers from the logistics landscape.

LaneAxis has created a dedicated web portal for OOIDA members, which you can see in the below image. Beta testing will continue over the next several weeks.



BLOCKCHAIN AND AXIS TOKEN

The LaneAxis blockchain and AXIS Token also continue to generate immense interest from both within and outside the freight industry. Combining a groundbreaking direct network concept with next generation blockchain technology is whetting the appetites of both investors and industry insiders. 

We will soon be releasing our new White Paper which will outline in detail our re-engineered blockchain design and Tokenomics model. Our blockchain development partners, Pixelplex and Kairon Labs, have worked on dozens of successful blockchain projects over the past few years. The leadership teams from both organizations say LaneAxis represents perhaps the most market-ready and unique blockchain use-case they have ever worked on. And while that may not sound surprising coming from a partner company, consider that a large portion of their compensation is coming in the form of AXIS Tokens. In other words – they have a lot of skin in the game and all the motivation in the world to develop a state-of-the-art tokenized platform.

And speaking of the AXIS Token, demand for this digital asset – which will serve as the fuel that powers the LaneAxis blockchain system – continues to soar. 

We recently announced that the public pre-listing sale of AXIS Tokens will end on April 21. Since then, our AXIS Token website www.axistoken.io has experienced an incredible surge of activity – particularly from LaneAxis shareholders. That is due largely to the fact that we are offering LaneAxis shareholders a very generous bonus for tokens, which are currently priced at $.15 cents each. After April 21, ONLY LaneAxis shareholders will be able to purchase AXIS Tokens - but the Token price will increase to $.25 cents. We are still on track to list the AXIS Token on cryptocurrency exchanges toward the end of Q2 or beginning of Q3.

To learn more about the shareholder bonus, visit www.axistoken.io.

April 2021 Newsletter - LaneAxis Progress Update

8 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Shareholders and Supporters,

No foolin’ – LaneAxis reached the $1 million mark in its StartEngine Crowdfund raise in just 16 days. Last year it took just shy of 3 months to reach our fundraising cap of $1.07 million (which has since been raised to $5 million). Our first campaign in 2020 – which closed out early with hundreds left on the waitlist - was considered a big success.

That fact only magnifies the momentum we are currently experiencing.

LaneAxis CEO and Founder Rick Burnett reflected on the journey LaneAxis has experienced the past year:

“Last year we launched our fundraising campaign just as the global pandemic enveloped the globe,” says Burnett “At the time, we anticipated a challenging road ahead given the circumstances. But as it turned out, the circumstances that unfolded - particularly the run on staples such as toilet paper and cleaning products – exposed major fractures and flaws in freight transportation. The LaneAxis Direct Freight Network emerged as a game-changing solution that could dramatically help mitigate such supply chain crises. As public awareness of the LaneAxis solution grew, our momentum began to take on a life of its own – and a year later that momentum continues at full speed.” 

You can read more about LaneAxis reaching the $1 million mark in our latest press release

While $1 million is certainly a nice round number – it is ultimately just a one-time milestone on our way to $5 million. So we’re only 20-percent of the way there. The LaneAxis Team remains focused and hard at work.


System & Platform Updates

Carriers continue to flock to the platform. We on-boarded over 1,000 new carriers in March. We anticipate activating one to two thousand new carriers in April. Our SMS text campaign has proven exceptionally effective. We continue to gain steam with Shippers, with several dozen now on board. As we often explain, rapid expansion of the carrier network is critical to achieving our growth goals – and is a key factor in getting shippers on board. We believe our current growth trajectory will result in a “network effect” - where both carriers and shippers look at the size and scope of the platform and its participants, and realize the value is too high to ignore and they jump in headlong.

Our software engineers and designers have been hard at work optimizing and improving the core LaneAxis platform. Here's a look at some of the updates:


Updated login & Registration Screens: New look and feel to improve the registration and signup process. It now takes only 3 steps to register as a carrier/shipper.

Portal Login & Registration


Mobile Login and Registration


Updated Network Screens: We are providing a predefined list of carriers/shippers that a user would connect with based on location, equipment type and industry. We've enhanced the Network Search user experience with easy to use functionality.

Carrier Network Page: Portal

 Carrier Network Page: Mobile

Shipper Network Page: Portal

Shipper Network Page: Mobile


Updated Profile Screens:  Improved the profile screens for shippers and carriers by strategically assembling the information. A more modern feel on the profile that can compete with any other social media platform.

Shipper Profile Screen


Carrier Profile Screen

We have also updated the design for Automated Contract generation using e-signature to confirm a successful Network Connection between Carrier and Shipper.

 

Blockchain & AXIS Token

Implementation of the Blockchain and AXIS Token into the platform is proving to be a key driving force behind our successful equity raise.

We will be rolling out a “stablecoin” function within the platform that will insulate the core network platform from any fluctuations in the cryptocurrency markets. The stablecoin will be pegged to the U.S. dollar – ensuring seamless and consistent payments and payouts for the system’s core users. Below is brief description of the stablecoin functionality:

Stablecoin functionality and flow

The AXIS Token remains the primary mechanism for API access into the LaneAxis blockchain, as well as the primary payment tool to obtain shipment and industry data, as well as to unlock and access numerous features and perks within the overall blockchain ecosystem.

As always, we thank you for your support and encourage you to share our campaign page link with your friends, family and professional contacts.

Our current Time-Locked Bonus of 20% bonus shares ends soon!

LaneAxis Shares & AXIS Tokens: Important Distinctions and Descriptions

8 months ago

Hello LaneAxis Community,

We’ve received a lot of questions recently about the LaneAxis Blockchain, AXIS Tokens, whether there’s a difference between LaneAxis & LaneAxis Inc. – and what it all means for StartEngine investors.

We thought now would be a good time to clarify some points and offer some deeper insights and background.

First, it’s important to understand that purchasing shares of LaneAxis via StartEngine, whether a new buyer or a current shareholder, is completely different than owning AXIS Tokens. Buying shares gives you an actual ownership stake in the company. Buying AXIS Tokens gives you ownership of a digital asset that will serve myriad uses within the LaneAxis ecosystem. We highlighted many of these use-cases in a press release earlier this week.

Some key points to remember:

  • LaneAxis, Inc. (“LaneAxis”) is a Delaware C corporation headquartered in Orange County, California.
  • AXIS Token International is a wholly owned subsidiary of LaneAxis. ATI is based in the Cayman Islands set up in November 2017..
  • LaneAxis owns 1.2 billion AXIS Tokens in cold storage – allowing us to strategically control the supply of tokens both within the network and on the open market
  • LaneAxis has partnered with three leading blockchain development firms to build out the protocol: LedgerLink Labs, Kairon Labs and Pixelplex
  • The AXIS Token is an ERC-20 Ethereum compatible utility token being implemented into our core LaneAxis platform. It serves as both an API key to the network as well as a transaction mechanism within the blockchain ecosystem.
  • LaneAxis hopes to list the AXIS Token on major cryptocurrency exchanges sometime in Q2 of 2021. Owning AXIS token gives token holders liquidity on the open market.  
  • LaneAxis hopes to list the token at $.25 cents each, but will make a final determination as we get closer to initial Exchange launch. Once publicly listed, the token can be sold on the “open market” – where LaneAxis hopes for a welcome reception, especially as the Direct Network begins to use it in greater and greater quantities and numerous utilities of the data increase in both quantity and demand. These data sets can even be bundled for interested parties. 
  • LaneAxis will implement a “stablecoin” mechanism within the network to maintain equal value with USD, thus stabilizing prices/payouts for end users, as well as protecting the network itself from any price fluctuations the AXIS Token may experience in the open market.
  • The IP value of our blockchain and AXIS Token is one of the primary factors of our company’s increased valuation from one year ago – when it was not factored into our valuation as the blockchain/token had not been deployed in the network at that time.

So how important is the blockchain – and how much does LaneAxis believe in its power?

In 2018, LaneAxis invested 45 Bitcoin ($2.5 million value today) to develop the backend system to support the token and blockchain protocol.

You can view our token listing on Etherscan

Combine the power and potential of the AXIS Token with a powerful software patent plus a powerful Direct Network, and you’ve really got something… strong. And POWERFUL.

LaneAxis' current positioning in the market is the product of foresight and etermination to build a trustless, direct, decentralized network on blockchain - powered by the AXIS Token. Among our primary targets: eliminating $200 billion in annual “managed fees” by the largely unregulated freight brokerage industry. 

Fully dissecting the benefits of blockchain and the AXIS Token would take a lot of time and print space. For those who want to learn more in greater detail, click the button below to read our white paper, which dives into the granular aspects of the platform.

Here’s a glimpse of the blockchain/smart contract flow that you will see in the white paper:


Blockchain/Smart Contract Flow 

Shipper has a shipper node which contains all details of shippers, verified shippers, current status of shippers and their validations. Shipper will create a valuable state in the blockchain which will act as an escrow contract governed by contracts created by the shipper. These escrows will contain the amount which is going to be released from the state once the carrier successfully delivers the product to the user. The real-time data for verification of driver location will be handled by the state itself and judge the driver’s score as well. Carriers will have separate nodes which keeps track of all shipments coming from the shipper’s node. Note: Both design and description subject to change.

 


Shipper Network Connections

Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain and the AXIS Token will all “join forces” to help Shippers find real-time capacity when and where they need it – at a moment’s notice.


You can learn much more about the blockchain and AXIS Token by visiting www.axistoken.io. (Breaking News: We are in the process of merging our Direct Network site with our AXIS Token site into one superpower site. Details forthcoming)

Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions about the blockchain or AXIS Token.
