Founder and CEO ChainLockR

“Companies are not only competing with each other; entire supply chains are now competing on a global level. Each Supply chain is as strong and competitive as its weakest link.
Locking in or integrating key links in the supply chain with smart contracts and e-collaboration while leveraging large volumes of data across supply chain partners allows the application of the latest AI and Machine Learning capabilities; all of which play a crucial role in enabling smart and effective transactions.”

ChainLockR was created based on the need to optimize the documentation, conciliation, proof of delivery and payment processes for international trade and logistics. Our focus is to streamline the need for paperwork, required original signatures, compliance requirements and avoiding fraud and theft issues.

ChainLockR has been created to power smart transactions across industries and global markets using AI, Blockchain and Cloud Based Collaboration Platforms.

Background to Dr Andrew West

Born to Australian diplomats, Andrew West spent much of his life growing up in South Africa, Australia and Hawaii.

Dr West has an extensive background in scientific research. His passion is sharing fascinating nature stories (hence TV shows), and providing answers to challenging environmental problems. 

Now after 4 science degrees, and 30 years of experience in the field, he is considered an expert on animals and invasive plants . Breakthroughs in his research and unique footage quickly got the attention of BBC, ABC, National Geographic, and Discovery Channel documentary filmmakers. 

In 2005 Andrew quickly became the “go to” biologist for those dealing with environmental problems, and soon got the label of “Keeping the peace between Man, plant & Beast”.

Dr West was asked by the Australian government (and the state of Hawaii) to conduct his doctoral research in the area of Environmental science on the big island of Hawaii which was struggling with invasive animals, invasive plants and lower agricultural production.
