Brixby is a blockchain-based marketplace for transportation services. With bricks for building your transportation business, Brixby brings together transportation services and consumers. To begin with, the platform identifies two major groups of users: businesses and consumers. Micro-business and SMEs in the transportation sector are among the major users of Brixby platform.
The primary benefit of using the platform is the ability to combine any number of services into a product or solution as required. Businesses may choose as many services as they need. Alternatively, they can utilize the user interfaces or business services offered by the platform.
The world’s urban centers are swelling with population, with the poorest regions witnessing the highest growth rate. Urban transportation is one of the key elements of city life. However, most cities are unable to curb transportation problems without investing huge capital and long-term infrastructure. In the end, disorganized transportation system and underutilized resources remain in the hands of micro-businesses and SMEs, which also lack resources and skills for appropriate transportation management.
In the absence of proper management of the transportation system, there is loss of time and money, frustration of citizens, and wanton pollution. Against that backdrop, there is a need to solve some of the transportation problems in high-density urban environments. Brixby provides easy-to-use, decentralized tools for businesses to organize and mage their resources.
A modular and decentralized platform, Brixby aims to connect micro-businesses and SMEs in the transportation industry, making their services more usable and visible. Brixby operates on the blockchain using smart contracts and tokens, which will enable businesses to grow at their own pace, avoid huge IT investments, and to ensure verification and openness of transactions.

To provide the highest level of security on the platform, Brixby uses the Blockchain technology, which allows a permanent and cross-validated transactions logging.

Any user can trace any transaction, identify a problem such as duplicate charges, and solve them easily.
