Themes

E-Commerce

The sudden booming growth of cross-border e-commerce has posed various challenges to both sellers and consumers. For eCommerce, B2B shipments can have small order quantities and a low merchandise value, while B2C shipments tend to be highly variable and very small, with many falling below the minimum threshold for taxes and duties.

With the increase in both the number of small consignments and the volume of e-commerce trade, how can sellers fulfil their promise to customers of on-time delivery at a predictable cost? What technology and business innovations could be designed to facilitate cross-border eCommerce activities to enable fast clearance for e-commerce shippers, yet meet the need for secure border clearance for government authorities?

Output Focused:

  • Business Plans
  • Solution-oriented technology prototypes  

Restriction/Requirement:  

  • We are using Java + on AWS for the main platform
  • Python for Data Structure related

Preferably the solution will not have constraint to work well with above

Submission format:   

Easy evaluation by judges who are not technical, something that’s executable & UI base. Note: Will need the source code and other related materials used by the winner post hackathon (transfer of IP right to the organizer)

Resources:
