The main fight in a segment to delivery will be started between the large players (Amazon, Postmates, Delivery Hero) providing the following types ways of delivery: the automated vehicles (drones and robot-couriers) and bicycle delivery We didn't manage to find other companies proposing the same solution, as MAXITUBE (delivery of products/goods on special pipes in the client's house/refrigerator) which managed to raise funds from the qualified, professional investors
Implementation of the similar project will demand cardinal revision of city infrastructure, billion investments and the state support. About gravity of implementation of the similar decision it is possible to judge by the April Fools' joke published on April 1st, 2013 allegedly on behalf of Amazon on the website pc.net – news "comes to an end with the following phrase with These users, not-so-creatively called \"test tubes, \" are already enjoying same-hour delivery of many of their favorite products. The company plans to roll out Amazon Tube nationwide by June 30, 2075 Founders of WP give reports of the consulting agencies McKinsey, Accenture and KPMG as confirmation of innovation of the decision.", "In the report of McKinsey there is no information concerning use of special pipes (tube) for delivery of goods directly to the client and, in particular, delivery in the refrigerator. Here the direct quote from the report of McKinsey (Parcel delivery The future of last mile): "Three X2C delivery models are likely to dominate the last mile in the future, driven by consumer preferences and drop density (e.g., longer distances in rural areas significantly increase last-mile costs): AGVs with parcel lockers, drones, and bike couriers. Autonomous vehicles including drones will deliver close to 100 percent of X2C and 80 percent of all items. Only ~ 2 percent will be delivered by bike couriers in the relatively small instant delivery segment And updating of services of delivery in general aren't mentioned in the report of KPMG (Export opportunities of the Dutch ICT sector to Germany) of modification at all.", In the report of Accenture (THE NEW Achieving High Performance in the Post and Parcel Industry 2016), also, as well as in the report of McKinsey, as the main trends autonomous vehicles of delivery for performance of tasks on the earth and in air are allocated, but there is nothing about use of special pipes. In the report of Accenture (Adding Value to Parcel Delivery) delivery with use of pipes is also not given as a trend; besides, analysts of Accenture have made the list of the perspective startups working in the sphere of delivery including Maxitube don't have last-mile – among them (date of release of the report – on September 29, 2015)
The company works on a product about 5 years, but is at the moment ready to offer only MVP. Prerequisites on the basis of which it is possible to confirm that the planned payback period will make only 6 months aren't presented.", here are no data on the paying clients which are ready to develop the MAXITUBE system. The company initially planned to attract financing from venture funds, but, apparently, couldn't make it.
Factors which will allow to increase revenue and EBITDA by 10 times by 4th year after ICO, and by 20 times to the 5th, in comparison with the last periods aren't specified and to reach $1,2 billion EBITDA of everything in five years. Expenses grow in proportion to revenue – it means that the company plans to grow only at the expense of scale, but not due to increase in efficiency of activity. At the moment (14.10), according to etherscan, only about $13,5K are collected. First" of the presented ways of ensuring profitability of owners of tokens is obviously speculative that can distort real idea of the state of affairs in the company for the new investor. Nearly $5M for start of the pilot project on the working platform (one house, business center).",
In team are absent the specialist in blockchain and the person with experience in the large infrastructure projects connected with smart-cities Besides, the main technological experts were engaged in development of pneumatic systems and calculation of aerodynamic systems, but they have no experience with the most advanced technologies in the field – for example, HyperLoop One.
At the end of 2015 the Gartner agency estimated number of the devices which are a part of the system smart cities. Experts call IoT the main element of development smart cities. By various estimates, by 2025 about 60% of the population of the earth (4,7 billion people) will live in the cities. The strategy of "smart cities 2.0" has at once drawn to itself attention of experts in the field of technologies and a research of data that promoted significant increase in number of scientific publications in the field for the last year. Also interest was shown by financial structures – it is supposed that only in the EU by 2020 in development of smart cities it will be invested not less than €3 trillion. Analysts of Frost & Sullivan assume that market size will be twice less - €1,5 trillion. Despite all advantages of development of smart cities, experts also allocate five of their main shortcomings: management/control of the huge volume of data, transition to a technocracy, influence of heads of corporations on administrative decisions, vulnerability for the hacker attacks, transformation of the city into a waxworks exhibition. Analysts of McKinsey assume that by 2025 1-2% of all passenger cars (15-30 million pieces) will be equipped with the autopilot. At the same time, the share of semi-automatic vehicles will make 12-15%. Economic effect of introduction of this technology is estimated at $204-235 billion a year, it is estimated taking into account time spent driving, the saved fuel, decrease in number of accidents.
The Maxitube project is a robotic electric transport system of city delivery. It consists from: • \t technology solution — using a pipe and the electric drive, Maxitube delivers food and things from cargo a market terminal in a smart the client's refrigerator that resolves issues with traffic jams, allows to get rid of shops, habitual supermarkets, trucks and to create green zones without cars. • \t services which are provided by the city Maxitube cross-platform. On the basis of the technological platform, the Maxitube system will organize a logistic network of the quarter, uniting small business (cafe, restaurants, drugstores, hotels) with larger structures (warehouse complexes, hypermarkets, banks, hospitals). All network of infrastructure of the area can transport goods between the business organizations and also schools, kindergartens, hotels in which there live tourists) and end users — residents of the area (B2B, B2C, P2P).
The company is created in 2012 and these 5 years preliminary work, therefore, the different MAXITUBE models have been constructed was conducted. The demo stand and a prototype (MVP) which works in laboratory of the company in Moscow is at the moment built; IP a package is created (the patent + a trademark and signs). According to the company, the approximate cost of installation of one MAXITUBE system on 20 inhabited 16th-floor apartment houses will be about $25 million, at installation of several quarters a payback period of a year. If to take the cost of delivery of Amazon Prime in which an annual club contribution of $100 and then for everyone delivery of $15, then a payback period can be half a year in models of calculation of payback. Various opportunities for use of functionality of MAXITUBE: - Auctions of suppliers for the consumer who vote, using TUBE COIN. The platform becomes a uniform window and the exchange of delivery of main types of goods. - The organization of new logistic chains of delivery, without intermediaries, with payment between B2B, B2C, P2P. - Maintenance of quality of goods, due to direct interaction with the supplier. - The aggregator of delivery of services of the concrete house, for services of a cleaning, hairdressers and massage therapists, on the basis of a uniform window and "the last mile". - The analysis of consumer preferences, different types of advertizing – samplers of goods, bonuses to the ordered products, etc.
The result of the introduction of the MAXITUBE project, by own calculations of the company, will be $1,74 billion by the end of 2023. Revenue of the project by years, after carrying out ICO: • \t1-2 year - $0 • \t3 year - $20M • \t4 year - $200M • \t5 year - $1,2 billion. The company provides two main scenarios of receiving income for buyers of tokens. The first — to sell the token in the secondary market, at the exchange when he grows in the price. The second — to sell it to the company of the MAXITUBE project which will carry out repayment of tokens at the market price every time when the project on the developer platform is started and profitability is received. The mechanism of share repurchase of tokens creates transparent model of distribution of profit, and at the same time creates an opportunity for investors to get profit due to volatility of market price of tokens.
