GET A PIECE OF LANEAXIS
A massive market that is evolving and growing at a rapid pace, especially during the global pandemic. Next generation technology is needed to tackle the increasing demand, and with that the increasing expectations of the end consumers.
Industry-first Shipper-to-Carrier Direct Network supported by blockchain and patented technology.
Oversubscribed $1.07M raise on StartEngine in 2020, sold out within 90 days. Hundreds on the waitlist.
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.
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 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 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
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
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
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.
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.
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.
With over a decade of research and development under our belt, we’ve built a direct logistics network to solve industry-wide problems, connecting all parties in a singular transportation ecosystem. By doing so, LaneAxis is at the forefront of a Transportation Driver and Data Network supported by patented software and blockchain technology, which leverage smart technology to help the trucking industry reach a new level of digitalization and efficiency. Years of development, proper management, depth of industry knowledge, deep connections in the supply chain industry, decades of combined trucking experience, and a patent-protected IP all come together right now. Our team is ready to take the next step and propel the project to a new level aimed at solving the massive inefficiencies in the supply chain.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
