The project will be tested on the route from Commercial Port of Vladivostok (part of FESCO Group) to St. Petersburg–Finlyandsky station. At the first stage, production rules will be developed, including a description of the smart-contract algorithm. To work on it, the companies will launch a joint working group.

The smart-contract service will provide contractual support of the main transport and logistic operations and mutual payments occurring between the parties involved in the transportation process.
