Blockchain Technology

COMSHIP is fully blockchain enabled. The blockchain is a data structure that makes it possible to create a permanent digital public ledger of transactions and to share it among a distributed network of computers. It uses cryptography to allow each participant on the network to add to a record on the ledger in a secure way without the need for a central authority. Blockchain data is verified, immutable, and globally accessible, making it a perfect technology for solutions like our SolasVGM and COMSHIP product. Blockchain data can be recorded and retrieved by designated parties anywhere in the world using mobile phones, tablets and PCs, eliminating the need for costly, proprietary infrastructure.

COMSHIP boasts a sophisticated rating system and booking platform which enables you, the direct client, to search for rates or even upload your own rates with a few simple clicks of a button. Rates are linked directly to our step by step booking system, which in turn connects to the global carrier of your choice and the blockchain, making COMSHIP a one stop shop and immediately saves our clients time and bottom line cost.
