Share whatsapp Jasper Jolly Gold above $1,200 for the first time since November as Trump economic policy vacuum pulls investors away from equities Thursday 12 January 2017 10:06 am Gold usually moves in the opposite direction to the dollar, which hit 14-year highs during the post-election market euphoria.Read more: Risk-filled 2017 drives gold investor sentiment to highest level since 2012Gold – traditionally a safe-haven investment – fell steeply after the election of Trump, as investors moved their money into riskier equities. Trump was widely expected to pursue a de facto stimulus, with policies mentioned on the campaign trail including massive tax cuts and deregulation combined with a trillion-dollar spending spree.However, more details of the economic policies – which would be unprecedented for a Republican President – have failed to emerge.During a raucous press conference the US President-elect failed to mention fiscal policy, other than an aside on drug prices which stunned the pharmaceutical industry worldwide. whatsapp Read more: FTSE 100 gold miners lose their shine as prices slump to 10-month lowHe also claimed he would “be the greatest jobs producer that God ever created”, despite government statistics showing – and the vast majority of economists believing – the US economy nearing full employment.Trump gave no specific instances of how he would do this, but did mention the “trade imbalance” with China as a “disaster” for the US.David Morrison, senior market strategist at Spread Co, said: “Mr Trump had nothing to say about tax cuts, reducing regulation or infrastructure spending. This omission led to a sharp sell-off in the US dollar and a corresponding bounce in precious metals.” by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeOne-N-Done | 7-Minute Workout7 Minutes a Day To a Flat Stomach By Using This 1 Easy ExerciseOne-N-Done | 7-Minute WorkoutMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailinvesting.comThe Military Spent $1 Billion On this New Vehicle, And Here’s The First Lookinvesting.comAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic MirrorWarped SpeedCan You Name More State Capitals Than A 5th Grader?

News / BluJay Solutions adopts what3words system to boost e-commerce delivery

first_img UK supply chain software supplier BluJay Solutions is to integrate the what3words address system into its MobileSTAR last-mile delivery application to help e-commerce fulfilment firms and parcel carriers reduce delivery errors.The what3words is an innovative way of determining any location in the world – ignoring traditional GPS systems, which can be inaccurate in densely populated urban areas.The what3words algorithm divides the world into a grid of three-metre squares and assigns each a unique name composed of three words.The system is very useful in emerging markets, which often lack detailed street addresses, seen as a barrier to the growth of e-commerce supply chains.“BluJay has integrated the technology to support the future of addressing, offering customers more granular location information for routes and delivery addresses so they can operate more efficiently,” the company said.Doug Surrett, BluJay chief product strategist, added: “For BluJay, it’s important to take a lead ushering in this next-gen addressing technology for our customers and last-mile logistics. The world is moving to more geolocation-based addressing, which not only solves a number of limitations inherent with traditional street-level addressing, but also opens new opportunities and applications for more exact, practical pick-up and drop-off points.“At the same time, logistics is shifting away from DC-to-retail models toward more home delivery, and with that comes an incredible level of flexibility that customers are demanding. With the what3words integration, BluJay enables customers to use precise universal addresses that enable efficient delivery anywhere,” he said.The company added that it would expand the technology to other applications within its Global Trade Network platform. MobileSTAR helps carriers manage the entire delivery process, with route optimisation and real-time visibility.Pierre Francois, head of senior partnerships at what3words, added: “As a leader in addressing technology, what3words is excited to partner with BluJay, a leader in last-mile delivery and supply chain execution software.“BluJay sees the value this integration provides to their users in adapting to the future of logistics and providing an optimal customer experience.”Other adopters of what3words include Airbnb, Saudi e-commerce provider Wadi and DB Schenker.
