Paris, March 28, 2023 - Archipels, a web3 platform for verifiable data and identities, and Formalogistics, a company specialized in training for the transport and logistics industry, have joined forces in the fight against document fraud!  

Together, the two companies are developing a solution for the certification and verification of CACES certificates for driving self-propelled mobile work equipment.

With 93,193 training organizations in France in January 2021, and 800,000 CACES cards issued each year, Formalogistics has made two observations:  

  • There is no standardization. Each organization issues its own cards, resulting in an administrative burden carried by each organization.
  • Document fraud is a recurring problem because the vast majority of certificates are printed on insecure paper.

Formalogistics therefore called on the Archipels Certify solution to certify its own CACES cards in order to facilitate the verification of their authenticity on a web page accessible to any employer.  

Thanks to Archipels, Formalogistics allows the verification of the authenticity of a CACES card by any actor of the ecosystem

Their collaboration began at the end of April 2022 and in 4 months Archipels and Formalogistics have :  

  • Implemented a certification solution for CACES cards on Blockchain thanks to Archipels Certify
  • Created an interface powered by the Archipels Verify API to authenticate CACES cards by a third party

After 4 months, Formalogistics has certified 200 CACES cards thanks to Archipels and aims to certify 22,500 cards by 2023.  

"Formalogistics is a player committed to the digitalization of its professional training business to develop new services and bring more confidence around the training delivered within its industry. Archipels has been a gas pedal to carry out this project with a plug-and-play solution in SaaS mode at an affordable cost for our activity". Jean-Cédric Pedinotti CTO of Formalogistics  

"We are proud to accompany an innovative player like Formalogistics in its digital transition. Our service Archipels Certify, simply answers to the stakes of fighting against document fraud and Formalogistics opens the way for the training organizations sector having undoubtedly the same concern of certification " explains Xavier Juredieu, COO of Archipels.
