The $700B US trucking industry is the backbone of American commerce with 80% of all cargo transported overland by trucks, yet it is plagued with inefficiency and ultimately controlled by a bloated intermediary brokerage system whose incentives are not aligned with the true stakeholders.

Imagine forming a blockchain platform bringing together shippers, carriers, truckers and brokers where they can place and track orders, assess performance records, compare pricing and extend credit. Add in a set of decentralized applications (DApps) linking up these stakeholders--and a new digital token speeding their transactions--and you could cut billions of dollars in inefficiencies from the $700 billion-dollar-a-year trucking industry.

That is the vision of Fr8 Network, a newly formed upstart that aims to take the pain out of shipping by targeting, in particular, the $66 billion a year in fees exacted by some 16,000 middleman brokerages. Some key points:
· Potential savings are huge. Trucks travel an astounding 29.6 billion miles every year only partially loaded or entirely empty--a waste of capacity even as businesses struggle with a shortage of drivers.
· Cut that unused capacity in half, and we could save $30 billion a year in fuel costs and reduce carbon emissions from trucks by 100 million tons per year, 20% of their total carbon output.
· By matching customers to and carriers online, the industry could sidestep broker fees that pose up to 20% of the cost of shipping goods; cut fees in half and the industry saves some $30 billion.

Digiwills
Digiwills is a service based on a smart contract that aims to ensure that your digital assets are not lost or fall into the wrong hands. Thanks to the blockchain technology, with this innovative service it will be possible to safely leave all your digital assets. Such as: Access to Cryptographic Portfolios, Exchange, bank accounts, emails and passwords of your social networks and everything that only you have access to. With this service we can leave everything in order for our families to enjoy our digital assets. Decentralized The service will be based on an smart contract in the blockchain, this means that no entity or person will have access or control to the data of the users. Only the users themselves and the successors will have access, once the information is sent to them. Reliable The data will be stored in the blockchain, encrypted with the owner's key. Once in the blockchain there will be no way to alter or read them without the owner’s key. Safe Being a decentralized service, the data will be replicated throughout the network so losing them will be impossible. How it works On the platform, the user will be able to create an account where they can save sensitive data, such as: users and passwords, details of bank accounts or any information they wish to be grouped in blocks (Wills), in the blockchain in a secure way, to these blocks the user can assign successors which will receive the information contained in the block (Will). These blocks (Wills) will be encrypted using the unique key of each user, therefore only the owner will have access to said information and his assigned successors once he meets certain criteria. The service will consume an amount of the Digiwills Token (DGW) daily, as a condition to keep your data retained. If account run out of funds, the system will send the data to successors.
