AXIchain launches livestock movement app for transporters

Beef Central, 10/08/2020

With a focus on digital lifetime traceability, animal welfare, and biosecurity enhancements, AXIchain has launched the mNVD app for use in the livestock transport industry.

The licenced app ensures digital continuity of data for Australia’s livestock traceability system completed with unique synchronisation with transporters.

‘We developed the user-friendly mNVD app to fix pain points in the livestock transport industry and to provide a market access advantage for the Australian red meat supply chain,’ said Linda Woodford CEO AXIchain.

Transporters receive, via the AXIchain system, an SMS or email notification of a job and can accept on the spot. Transport companies or drivers then use their smart device to fill in the transporters section of the mNVD to commence the journey. The mNVD alerts stakeholders of the journey, taking the organisation responsibility away from the transporter. Transporters have the option to create delivery notes when arriving at the destination and are not required to register with AXIchain.

‘The paperless documentation transfer within the supply chain means everyone is safe during COVID while remaining fully compliant with food safety obligations,’ said Ms Woodford.

‘Buyers, feedlots, agents, saleyards or abattoirs are notified of the consignment and can organise their operations to suit; everyone is informed in real-time closing the gap in communication within the supply chain. The mNVD is a significant piece of software that enforces traceability and provenance’ concluded Ms Woodford.

With a focus on animal welfare and biosecurity, the mNVD applies to cattle, sheep, and goats. Time off feed and water is declared by the consignor, ensuring biosecurity measures to manage the effluent load on the journey.

The mNVD has digital time stamping and location tracking for the length of the journey, maintaining unbroken digital lifetime traceability of the livestock. This technology can monitor transit time, guaranteeing the industry meets welfare standards.

Exclusive QR code technology is utilised for off-line scenarios and is a legal livestock waybill in all state and territory jurisdictions.

The mNVD app is available in Google Play and will be available for Apple users shortly. It is also available in a web browser.

Value-adding to the mNVD, AXIchain is providing digitised farm management tools and a domestic and international sales platform aimed at enhancing supply chain systems and traceability. AXIchain is providing the end-to-end visibility of food products needed in the commodity trading environment of the future.
