3D Supply Chain Process System
Ubims is the world's first patented, cloud-based meta-platform as a 3D supply chain process system for connecting multiple providers of goods with consumers worldwide and for a complete reinvention of the global supply chain process.
It is a shared supply chain infrastructure for entrepreneurs and SMEs modeled as a three-dimensional [3D] globally interconnected e‐marketplace and e-supply chain process system for both communication and distribution of real goods. The most obvious example of a [3D] network is the Internet in the sense that it is simply a meta-platform for information, connecting multiple information sources to multiple information recipients.
Moreover, Ubims will be developed on blockchain technology. Ubims is the first decentralized open supply chain infrastructure system, and blockchain is a new decentralized public ledger technology. Therefore, Ubims [3D] process platform with blockchain technology will disrupt the whole global supply chain industry.
The current U.S. supply chain market size is $4.25 trillion. About 10% ($425 billion) would be the market size for Ubims in the U.S. market alone
Traction and Validation
The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), one of the most recognized and well-established organizations in the supply chain industry, has endorsed the concept of a [3D] supply chain process system by publishing UbiMS founder Luke Ho-Hyung Lee’s article “How a “3-D” supply chain process system could revolutionize business” in its Supply Chain Quarterly Journal.
A [3D] supply network ranked #1 out of the Top 10 Supply Network Trends by ES3 Research, one of the most recognized research centers in the logistics industry.
Ubims was mentioned by Adrian Gonzalez: Ubims, which is using blockchain technology “to change the way businesses manage data, adapt to shifting consumer demands, and coordinate the flow of goods around the globe 24.7.365.” UbiMS sees blockchain’s potential to become a new operating system for Supply Chain Operating Networks, and also help to federate those networks.
Why Ubims ?
Product Liquidity Trap
Because customers are widely dispersed, it is very difficult, expensive and time consuming for individual suppliers (especially, for individual SME suppliers) to construct their own marketing and supply chain networks to supply all potential customers in the market.
Moreover, many new brands, kinds (flavors or designs), and sizes of products have been created in almost all industries of our economy over the last 50 years. As a result, the number of different products has increased exponentially or in a three-dimensional way during that period. In addition, due to the rapid advancement of communication technology and transportation capability, many more differentiated products have been imported from abroad. However, the current supply chain processes, mostly with limited store or distribution center space, and high individual product delivery or fulfillment costs, have caused the higher liquidity costs in physical products and seriously impeded the smooth flow of all products to the market. More seriously, in this situation, many small- and medium-size company businesses still using the conventional distribution processes have kept on being destroyed, mainly due to multiple costly transaction stages, over the last several decades. This must be a hidden and critical flaw in our economy, and we believe our markets have already fallen into a liquidity trap for physical products.
The Ubims Solution
With Ubims, businesses will no longer need to spend unnecessary time and money constructing individual private marketing, logistics and supply chain networks; instead, they will seamlessly connect and transact on Ubims' network for almost all kinds (brands), sizes, and prices of products, resulting in lower costs, shorter delivery times and higher profits.
In this way, the liquidity costs for physical products could be significantly reduced - and the current physical-product liquidity trap could also be easily broken down.
Who will benefit from this platform ?
- Constructed as a partnership of collective power of all participating members; therefore, everyone can benefit from the size of the supply chain infrastructure
- Significantly lowers barriers to entry for businesses by reducing supply chain infrastructure costs
- Small- and medium-size businesses and even individuals will durably compete with companies the size of Walmart, Amazon, and Alibaba
- Less than 6-hour delivery for all orders will be possible
- Last-mile delivery services between local retail centers and end-customers will improve significantly
- Numerous new businesses and jobs will emerge from improved local margins
