Surprising lack of interest in this stock. It seems to have been stuck in a lowly 3m to 4m m/cap range for so long despite being technically innovative on such a low budget and linking with some impressive partners. The DHL award for Lokies and intended trials relating to the product could be transformational. With SAAS income increasing year on year, then eventually STAR should move into profitability. Some of the management were responsible for building up Pilot Media and selling it for a more than decent price. I've seen many lesser companies on ten times the m/cap of STAR and the low valuation probably relates to:- keeping a low profile, being an Israeli company and the duration STAR have been on the cusp of profitability and awaiting transformational deals but never quite getting over the line with inconvenient things like pandemics getting in the way. With some of the management building up Pilat Media and then selling it for just over $100m I think STAR will eventually attain a much higher valuation once there are clear signs they are moving to profitability and winning deals with the likes of DHL. I expect selling the Company on is the ultimate management goal. It's a patient hold for me and decent risk/reward with income from Zero and CropX as well as Lokies likely to rise.

Also, very good news today from the BOD who have again demonstrated the lengths they are prepared to go to in providing financial support for their Company. Unlike many AIM companies with Directors on large salary and benefits packages, they are prepared to defer taking a salary for a further 12 months in lieu of share options which can be exercised at the recent closing price. Yet again they've avoided diluting the holdings of their Shareholders and have firmly aligned their interests alongside those of their patient long term holders. The BOD are demonstrating they have faith in the future of this company and anticipate earning their rewards through growing the company and extracting their return when they eventually dispose of their shares.. This resonates with their actions in Pilot Media, a company they previously grew and sold for over $100 Million. This helps to reaffirm my belief that they have similar intentions here and that they're not prepared to consider any offers until they've managed to grow the business to a level at which it becomes attractive to predators and they'll eventually relinquish control when they can dispose of their shares at a healthy premium to it's quoted share price. All the main BOD are in their late 50's so this is likely to be their final business venture before they head off into retirement and they'd prefer to leave on a swansong . I'm expecting a big improvement in Turnover, profit margin and profitability over the next couple of years. This should also become reflected in cashflows as the company becomes self sufficient and capable of financing its working capital requirements and it's future growth prospects. Eventually, we'll receive an RNS informing us of some lucrative contracts that have been awarded. The company has an excellent suite of highly rated hi-tech products that complement each other and winning the recent DHL award indicates that many knowledgeable people within the Logistics industry concur. The RNS we are awaiting could come from one of several directions as the company is beginning to amass a group of successful customers who will help to deliver it's future growth

We must also factor into this the recent takeover of Panalpina by DSV, who are an iTrackIndia customer. That results in the creation of the 2nd largest airfreight provider in the world - DHL currently leads that pack. Furthermore, on 27th April DSV agreed to acquire Kuwait's Agility Public Housing for $4 Billion making it the world's 3rd largest freight forwarding company. Only DHL and Kuehne and Nagel are larger. Finally, word on the street is that DSV are in talks with D B Schenker(the world's 4th largest freight forwarder) to acquire it for somewhere in the region of $8-10 Billion.This deal won't take place until 2022,at the earliest. If this deals goes ahead it will place DSV on a par with DHL or could even take over No.1 spot. Now that's a mouth watering prospect especially if we happened to have a foothold in both camps

The comments below ignores Contguard, Cubemonk and several other high profile customers such as, CropX and Zero/Polaris.. Winning this award brings us into prominence within the European rail/cargo freight market. This is forecast to rapidly expand over the next 5 years and if we can gain a foothold within some of the largest freight forwarders/Logistics operators then there's a rich seam to be sewed

Some of the largest European Freight Forward Operators see China-Rail as an important complement to sea freight. The emphasis, however, is on supplementation because the entire cargo volume cannot be handled by rail. As always in logistics, it remains an interplay of the various modes of transport and the best individual solution for the respective customer's requirements. Particularly at present, with recent blockade in the Suez Canal and the changes in the sea freight market (Covid 19), it can be assumed that importers will increasingly examine their supplier network for alternative modes of transport such as China Rail and position themselves more broadly. In the area of digitalisation, a few projects can be highlighted, in addition to the maintenance and further development of interfaces for automated order transmission and processing with customers and partners. For example, some of the larger operators are currently implementing a cross-group and cross-division digital document management system. In other words, a truly complete "digital forwarding file". They are also developing their web portals including the Track & Trace function in the general cargo area and can now inform the consignees about the status of the delivery in relation to the order and the consignment. Starcom have already recognised how this market is developing and they have specifically designed the architecture of their software to enable it to be slotted within the framework of a customers network without affecting their other internal operating systems. There's currently a lot going on within the rail freight industry especially in relation to Euro-Asia and the Middle East. That RNS in 2020 which referred to several customers prepared to order Lokies without proof of concept , specifically mentioned several prominent countries who occupy locations within the NSN. Everywhere you look at present indicates that significant capital investment is being applied both by Countries to improve their infrastructure and large cargo freight companies, such, as PKP in Poland (one of the largest cargo freight carriers in Europe) and is aimed at exploiting opportunities which will be presented by expansion of the NCN. Lokies are ideal for this mode of transport and I foresee a huge market developing in this area. Winning this award with DHL not only brings Starcom and their suite of products into the limelight but will hopefully enable us to exploit DHL's huge contacts book. I really hope Starcom's sales team are up to the task of making the most of this opportunity.

In the month since the Suez incident, there has been a noticeable increase in China-Europe rail freight services. It would be unrealistic to think that rail could possibly substitute large container ships in transcontinental transportation. However, just like during the Covid pandemic, rail proved during the Suez crisis that it is a viable and reliable mode of transport. Furthermore, other factors like the high costs in air freight, and container shortages in maritime transport, make rail look even more enticing. Together with the short transit times, Eurasian rail freight seems to become a crucial part of the supply chain equation. When it comes to shipping specific goods like electronic devices, time-sensitive products or when there is a sudden demand increase, rail freight is there to provide dedicated and tailor-made solutions. Interest spiked in overland logistics from the moment the Ever Given hit the banks of the Suez Canal on 23 March. Rather than sending consignments to east coast ports in China, forwarders immediately looked in the other direction, seeking to put boxes on trains heading west. Trade partners right across Europe, the Middle East and Asia were quick to realise how disruptive the blockage could be. There was a sharp rise in enquiries and promotions as soon as the extent of the problem was identified. For goods with any sort of time-critical delivery and price sensitivity, rail by any of the New Silk Road routes became the most feasible solution and alternative, ahead of air and road freight. This should prove beneficial for Starcom and it's suite of track and trace products as there is a huge market waiting to be exploited

In the February 2020 RNS Trading Update the BOD commented,"Following its successful launch in April 2019, Lokies, the Company's intelligent reporting padlock product, is attracting growing demand. The Company has recently signed an agreement with the Russian distributor that had previously tested the product and ordered an initial 500 units. This conditional agreement sets purchase targets for the distributor and supply targets for the Company and, whilst there are no binding purchase commitments, the Company is targeting the delivery of up to $2 million worth of Lokies in 2020. The agreement is for three years and provides exclusivity to the distributor in Russia, subject to them meeting certain targets.(That order still remains pending) "The Board believes that Lokies, as an Internet of Things ("IoT") solution, could become the market leading product in the 'smart padlocks' market". In the March 2020 RNS accompanying the 2019 final results the Business Review Statement commented " Lokies, was successfully launched in April 2019 and has been well received in the market, with proof of concept ("POC") projects having been initiated with various key customers. In addition, a number of customers in Russia, Israel, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Bulgaria and Poland, have placed initial orders, forgoing the customary POC stage in order to reach their respective local markets faster. The Board believes that this innovative Internet of Things ("IoT") product can become a leader in the "smart padlocks" market and has the potential to spearhead significant growth for Starcom as it can be marketed via both B2B and B2C models." Confirmation has now been received that the new transhipment terminal on the Kazakh-Chinese border started operating just over a week ago, so that order may now be very close to completion. Also, note the planned increase in the volume of TEU's which the terminal will be capable of handling. [...]

Encouraging signs for Starcom as a new report covering rail freight expansion suggests significant new investment as a result of global supply chain issues should provide a larger market for their Track and Trace logistics products. A report, published by Research and Markets, an American-based specialist in business analysis, has singled out rail freight as a significant area of commercial growth in the next five years. North America leads the global rail freight market but Asia-Pacific is expected to overtake North America during the forecast period. Moreover, the rise in global trade and various trade agreements are boosting the global trade flows. The surge in rail is anticipated in Asian markets – such as the recently announced Indian initiative by Maersk. Clearly, the New Silk Road, facilitated by China’s Belt and Road initiative is a significant factor behind that expected Asia-Pacific growth. The report examines the longer-term returns investors can expect from rail freight, noting that average tonnage per train is up by 80 per cent in the last decade.When shipping by rail, the lower interest costs for the tied-up capital partly cover the higher transportation costs, making rail freight a very cost-efficient shipping alternative. Rail freight is a factor in developing local economies. In some regions of Central Asia, Eastern Europe, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa characterised by groupings of many small countries, rail freight can increase economic integration by providing access to international and regional markets and connecting landlocked countries.
