ParcelX launch GPX token to eliminate foreign exchange risk
The ecosystem will be supported by the native ParcelX Token (GPX), as the unifying payment instrument allowing participants to take part in the ecosystem regardless of their geographic location, eliminating foreign exchange risk.
ParcelX is being built on top of an existing logistics network with an established market base in China, Korea and Japan. Its partnerships include major cross-border e-retailers like Rakuten, eBay, Wish, InterPark, LG life, ymatou.com and haihu.com.
It also collaborates with Yunda, Sagawa, CJ, UBI, Walltech, and Cainiao. ParcelX’s China execution unit also has exclusive ownership of ports in Xiamen and Yancheng, with overseas warehouses in Japan and Korea.
With a vision to be the next generation solution for cross-border parcel deliveries, CEO and Co- founder Mr. Guo Shunri shares, “ParcelX’s closed-loop GPX Token economy builds value for early adopters and partners, and our team is confident that the initial coin offering will help scale up the existing business quickly by providing sufficient capital and ample incentives for participants to build a harmonious community that contributes to and benefits from the ecosystem.”
Voicing early support for ParcelX, Mr. Zhuolong Yang, Director, Vice-President and Chief Innovation Officer of Yunda Group, one of China’s largest express delivery companies, says, “It is an amazing idea to leverage the blockchain technology and token economy to help with the scaling of the cross-border parcel delivery business. Yunda is looking forward to the collaboration with ParcelX to deliver global parcels into China and would love to extend our service reach to more global locations through the ParcelX network.”
In addition, ParcelX will charge zero-commission on its services, allowing all participants in its ecosystem to focus on their core competencies of building their business and making deliveries. Instead of worrying about overhead costs and upgrading their IT infrastructure, partners are incentivized to focus on unlocking their latent capacity.
ParcelX will be listed on the RightBTC exchange in Dubai on the 18th of August, and the platform’s beta version is set for launch in Q4 2018, upon which the company’s existing businesses will be migrated to the Parcel X network.
