What is Polo Multimodal?
A project with over 20 million square meters located in the logistic corridor of Port of Pecém, in the municipality of São Gonçalo do Amarante, State of Ceará.
Conceived to house both national and international companies from different sectors, the POLO MULTIMODAL PECÉM was designed within the most modern and rigorous criteria of infrastructure, technology and sustainability; promoting innovation to contribute to the progress of a new industrial age.
About us: We envision an innovative and sustainable “Smart Chain City.” That leverages Blockchain Technology to meet the logistics and industrial hub demands of a thriving symbiotic ecosystem, while contributing towards a positive ecological and social impact.
Mission: To meet the logistics and industrial hub demands using personalized solutions and innovative technologies to improve the process management in the chain of events, boosting business competitiveness and Brazil’s economy.
Vision: To find solutions in logistics and the industry 4.0 business based on technology and sustainability, to meet the global market demands and be recognized as the most complete, efficient, logistic production hub in Brazil.
Believing in Brazil’s potentialInvesting in education and qualificationWe prize partnerships that value business and peoplePromoting innovation to contribute with the progress of a new industrial era.
Multi-modality: The integration of the main modals helps to speed up the logistics procedures with cost reduction, increased competitiveness and efficiency for an integrated management system.
Technology: Optical fiber connection, technological innovation, smart networks and automation of processes to meet the 4.0 industry.
Sustainability: Adoption of the model A+ construction to provide renewable source with energy and water efficiency gains, waste management and control of social and environmental impacts.
The Polo Multimodal represents a unique project in Latin America in terms of size, turnover and socio-economic impact that can be profitable in the future. Due to its location in a strategic area of significant development, it is drawing the attention of important international players.
Social Management: Commitment and relationship with stakeholders — partnerships with National and International Universities, events (road show, lectures, fairs) with a diverse audience (academics, investors, governments, businessmen). Encouraging technological development, research and innovation. Community association to class entities, promotion of projects of education, training, local development and social technology.
Environmental Management: Compliance with environmental legislation standards, obtaining licenses, controlling and preserving green areas. Investment in projects of a constructive model based on processes and systems of water and energy eco-efficiency, health and safety, waste management, urban flow — urban mobility and control of greenhouse gas emissions.
Economic Management: Creation and management of the Polo-coin token aimed at facilitating the exchange of goods and services within the Polo Mulitmodal, thus enabling a greater security of commercial transactions between the companies already established and the supply chain.
Investment in technology and study funding to improve the Smart Concept standards and promote the local and global sustainable development.
International Covenant: The sustainability strategy of POLO MULTIMODAL PECEM is in synergy with the goals of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) that make up a global agenda adopted during the United Nations Summit on Sustainable Development, composed of 17 objectives and goals to be achieved by 2030.
In November 2017, the Polo Multimodal formalized its accession to the Pact, aiming at contributing to the implementation of the SDG and cooperating jointly with partners and other stakeholders.

Smart Chain Concept: Truly innovative projects are those that allow access of all agents of the ecosystem to the most modern technologies and exponents, in all its forms. This is what we are building at the Polo Multimodal: through the use of innovative engineering we will promote the true social revolution. Below are the five pillars of this construction.
Smart Chain Building: The buildings in POLO MULTIMODAL PECEM, from the project, will follow the SMART criteria, thus supplanting the traditional standards. The goal is to achieve the best results, such as the users’ well-being or the environmental sustainability.
Smart Chain Factory: The world has gone through a few revolutions in the industry, and is now in what we call Industry 4.0. In it, we find the concept of Smart Industry, which is nothing more than to make the most of the industrial process of some of the current technological advances, such as the capacity of processing, transmission and storage of data, with the development of analytical algorithms and prediction, artificial intelligence, big data, with modern sensors, actuators and interfaces. The POLO MULTIMODAL PECEM is bringing all these concepts to the productive chains of the partner enterprises with the intention of becoming a world reference in the industry 4.0.
The possibility that the urban ecosystem is deteriorating because of climate change poses the greatest threat.
Our goal, therefore, is that Smart Chain City improves air quality by encouraging electric mobility and to promote energy production and water management through systems that uses renewable sources such as:
It is also necessary to use materials, manufactured products and “passive systems”, such as:
Control of solar radiation
Vegetation and water
Shape and layout of urban elements
Effective artificial and natural lighting
Thermal insulation and inertia
Optical and thermal properties of transparent surfaces
Aerodynamic influence among urban elements
Measures to Promote Smart Chain City:
What does this have to do with Waltonchain? The Global leader in Blockchain + IoT
Polo Multimodal Pecém received, on Friday August 9, 2019, the visit of CEO Jianbo Ling of Waltonchain from Brazil to sign a new partnership between the two companies.
In the morning, the CEO of Polo Multimodal Sebastiano Di Ruocco and COO Victor Ghia welcomed Mr. Ling at the headquarters in Fortaleza to expose the project of the first Smart Chain City in Latin America: the Polo Multimodal Pecém. An agreement was signed between Waltonchain and Polo Multimodal linking the new partnership, where Waltonchain attests that it will provide technologies to implement the Polo Multimodal project. As an example, the implementation of the Polo Coin will be provided by Waltonchain’s child chain.
Waltonchain uses the RFID technology to promote the blockchain from the Internet to the Internet of Things (IoT) to realize the concept of Value Internet of Things to create an authentic, traceable business and fully shared model, completely transparent.
More specifically, the contributions of this partnership with Waltonchain to the Polo Multimodal are:
- Build a platform for Smart Chain City - Provide IoT and smart container devices - Customize APPs and the PoloCoin wallet - Create a community of operation of the Polo Multimodal in Asia
**Opinion** "Writing" this article was an incredible learning experience. The project that is being developed in Brazil is next level stuff. It’s amazing that Waltonchain is officially listed as a partner and will be developing a child chain for their ecosystem.
