Wain Logistics Architecture
Deliver items to the client within an hour or less
Wain Logistics is a platform that home-businesses and companies can use to deliver items to the client within an hour or less. The system will include features like: placing orders, tracking in real time orders and deliveries, select the most convenient delivery company, offer integration with 3rd party vendors and others.
- Fast delivery time
- Track delivery at all times
- Integration with other vendors websites
One of the main challenges in designing this solution was that we needed a tracking system that is flexible (i.e. offer information to multiple parties), efficient (preserve battery life) and fast (make read/write operations very fast).
So we decided to use Redis for the persistence layer for location and we also design a separate web interface and API that would allow the flexibility of this feature.
For the front end we used React and React Native as main technologies. We felt that being in the concept stage, things will change and React/React Native allows for a fast paced work and also integration with a lot of 3rd parties libraries.
Having a rich data model we decided to use GraphQL in order to make everything more efficient. These means that on the front end we needed some state management compatible with GraphQL so we went with Apollo-Client.
