International MultiModal Logistic Application (IMMLA) — Riding the increasing global trade in the future
The Logistics System
According to United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP). Logistics encompasses the planning, implementation and control of forward and reverse flow of goods, services and information from the point of origin to the point of consumption. Logistics also involves the storage of goods and information.
It is simplified as:
IMMLA is the first multimodal logistics service with a decentralised system of transportation, document workflow and payments. It’s mission is to make it simple, easier clear and more convenient interaction between the owner of the cargo and the transporter in all stages of freight transport. IMMLA will use the blockchain technology and smart-contracts, in the process of transportation and would eliminate the risks of trust and faster flow of information at a lower transaction cost/fee.

- Rising Global Trade
After the global financial crisis in 2008 to 2009, global economy is expected to grow at a moderate pace from USD75.28T in 2016 to USD99.96T in 2022, according to World Bank forecast. Due to rising confidence, favorable gobal financing conditions, stabilizing commodity prices and increasing manufacturing and global trade.
Global trade will steadily increase from 26.3% in 2009 (after the financial crisis) to 30.6% of global GDP or about USD30.59T.
2. Integrated Multimodal Logistics by ASEAN countries
This includes programs and projects intended to connect the Philippines to Association of South East Asian Nation (ASEAN) countries and other economic regions. This includes reevaluation of projects with the view toward upgrading and expanding the infrastructure to implement the ASEAN Framework Agreement on Multimodal Transport; establish an ASEAN Broadband Corridor; expand port infrastructure to accommodate the ASEAN Single Shipping Market; upgrade the road quality of missing links in the ASEAN Highway Network (AHN) and conduct studies on potential multimodal transport corridor to empower parts of ASEAN to function as land bridges in global supply routes.
3. Higher Philippine government infrastructure spending will improve the transportation or logistics of goods, services and information and economy in general
The Philippine economy also faced global trade challenges due to lower commodity prices, and weaker manufacturing exports demand.
Philippine exports in June 2017, dropped by 1.2% to $11.97B. Imports also decreased by 2.5% to $7.06B in June 2017. As show in the figure below.
However, the government under its “Build, Build, Build” scheme has committed to spend a record P3.6 trillion for infrastructure between 2018 and 2020. Of the amount, P1.13 trillion would be spent next year, P1.18 trillion in 2019, and P1.29 trillion in 2020. This long-term projects will boost the Philippine economy with better transportation or logistics of goods, services and information.
Despite the global challenges faced, the global economy will continue to improve steadily backed by improvements in the the transportation/logistics system of goods, services and information. Locally, in the Philippines, the government will marked the highest infrastructure spending to about Php8.4T until Duterte steps down from office.
Cryptocurrency is the “next big thing”. International MultiModal Logistic Application (IMMLA) is the first multimodal logistics service with a decentralised system of transportation, document workflow and payments.
I think IMMLA, will be the next big cryptocurrency in the multimodal logistics service riding the future global trade that will boost the global economy in the long-run.
