THE SMART CHAIN CITY
Innovative, Sustainable, Social
WITH AN AREA OF OVER 20 MILLION SQUARE METERS, POLO MULTIMODAL PECÉM WILL BECOME ONE OF THE FIRST “SMART CHAIN CITIES” IN THE WORLD TO IMPLEMENT BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY FROM THE VERY BEGINNING.
THE SMART CHAIN CITY WILL OFFER A MODERN INDUSTRIAL-LOGISTIC PLATFORM, FULLY INTEGRATED WITH ALL THE SURROUNDING URBAN AREAS AND THEIR ACTIVITIES IN ORDER TO IMPROVE THE COMPETITIVENESS OF COMPANIES, PARTICULARLY SMEs
The expansion of the Panama Canal in 2016, thanks to an investment of 5.3 billion dollars, completely changed the international maritime logistics landscape.
Inaugurated in June 2016, this expansion allowed large ships, the so-called “Post-Panamax”, to transport even larger loads, making Panama one of the most important locations in the world for maritime transpor.
THE PORT OF PECÉM
New Logistic Hub
As a logical consequence of the expansion of the Panama Canal, the Port of Pecém has become a strategic international hub for optimizing cabotage to all ports on the Atlantic.
Thanks to its natural draft of 18 meters and its strategic position, the Port of Pecém is ready to become a key global landmark.
Port of Rotterdam Authority
In October 2018, the Port of Rotterdam Authority signed a 75 million euros investment contract in order to contribute to the development of the Port of Pecém, acquiring a 30% stake in C.I.P.P.
“THE ARRIVAL OF FRAPORT AND THE PORT OF ROTTERDAM HAS TRANSFORMED THE REGION INTO A GLOBAL LOGISTIC HUB. WE ARE THE STATE WITH THE HIGHEST BUDGET AND THE BEST BASIC EDUCATION IN THE WHOLE COUNTRY.”

PROPERTY OF LANDS
Polo Multimodal is located 15 km from the public area, which includes the Port of Pecém and the Export Processing Zone (EPZ), and from the very important steel plant of Pecém, the result of a Korean investment of approximately 5.4 billion dollars.
The basic infrastructure, already present in Polo Multimodal, includes: electricity, fiber-optic cable network, railway (Transnordestina), as well as a wide access to the federal highway (BR 222), which allows to quickly reach the Port of Pecém, the airport of Fortaleza and the neighboring States.
To better understand the benefits that a Smart City can bring to its residents, we must first introduce the concepts and values that characterized the project since its inception.
Most of the current projects that call themselves “Smart” are in fact operations where new technologies are simply used to improve their already existing services.
But in order to build a Smart City from scratch, it is essential to work transversally and on multiple levels by integrating technology, urban planning, environment, people and production activities, in order to achieve a result that is attractive and sustainable for everyone involved, especially stakeholders.
“POLO MULTIMODAL PROVIDES ALL THE NECESSARY CONDITIONS FOR A COMPANY TO ENTER AND CONQUER THE LATIN AMERICAN MARKET. COMPANIES WILL RECEIVE INSTITUTIONAL, TECHNICAL AND STRATEGIC SUPPORT. OUR MISSION IS TO HELP COMPANIES DURING THE PROCESS OF INTERNATIONALIZATION.”
POLO MULTIMODAL COO
The intelligence core of Polo Multimodal consists of a modern Management Center and the futuristic PoloChain Lab.
The innovation process of Polo Multimodal will be based on a decentralized digital platform, Polo Digital Platform, that supports blockchain applications (smart contracts, smart assets and digital identity).
This infrastructure is related to development, and is distributed through Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies.
The Polo Digital Platform will include processes and innovation control, promoting the integration of infrastructures, services, technologies and governance.
“WE NEED TO REACH A POINT WHERE ENTERING A NEW MARKET BECOMES QUICK AND EASY. THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF SMART LOGISTIC INFRASTRUCTURES, DIGITIZATION PROCESSES AND STRATEGIC ON-SITE SUPPORT, WE WILL GIVE SMEs A CHANCE TO GROW AND CONQUER NEW MARKETS.”
SEBASTIANO DI RUOCCO
POLO MULTIMODAL CEO & CO-FOUNDER
The sustainability strategy of Polo Multimodale Pecém works synergistically with the
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) project, developed by the United Nations during a summit on sustainable development, which consists of 17 objectives and goals to be achieved by 2030.
The Polo Multimodal Pecém is integrated by several major projects:
1) a private port (Taíba Port);
2) a private airport for business and goods traffic (Airport Polo Pecém);
3) an area dedicated to the production of renewable electricity (Polo Energy Valley).
Since they are not included in the current evaluation, these parallel projects are considered “Upside Factors” as they can create added value for shareholders and for the whole region.
“THE UPSIDE FACTORS WILL CREATE GREAT VALUE FOR THE POLO AND THE ENTIRE PECÉM REGION. WE DIDN'T INCLUDE THEM IN THE CURRENT EVALUATION OF THE COMPANY, SO WE CAN PRODUCE A POSITIVE EFFECT ON THE POST-LISTING PRICE OF THE POLO SECURITY TOKEN.”
POLO MULTIMODAL CFO & CO-FOUNDER
CREATION OF VALUE
Investors enter at the price of the current evaluation of the land, certified by an independent local company.
The Swiss company, Polo Swiss Development AG, already owns the land.
The POLO Token (share) will be quoted at the price of the current project evaluation (DCF method) through the secondary market.
The project has been evaluated by the U.S. market leader Berkeley Research Group.
New shareholders can choose whether they want to invest buying traditional, ordinary shares or through security tokens, entering at cost and then creating value together, to consolidate the DCF evaluation on the financial markets.
The Catalysts Projects, in other words the “Upside Factors” (airport, green energy and private port), are not included in the current evaluation of the land and the project, and might result in a significant increase in the value of the company.
“OUR FINANCIAL MODEL ALLOWS NEW INVESTORS TO ENTER AT COST PRICE, CREATING VALUE TOGETHER THROUGH THE PROGRESSIVE DEVELOPMENT OF THE SMART CHAIN CITY.”
POLO MULTIMODAL CFO & CO-FOUNDER
“THE SECURITY TOKEN IS AN INNOVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT, THE BEGINNING OF A BRIGHT FUTURE. THE POLO SECURITY TOKEN WILL PROVIDE SHAREHOLDERS WITH GREATER LIQUIDITY ON THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL MARKETS, EVEN IN THE SHORT TERM.”
