Blockchain - A day to remember


August 27, 2018 - The container, processed with the revolutionary new blockchain-based CargoX Smart Bill of Lading™, has been released successfully in the Port of Koper, Slovenia (EU), where it arrived on Sunday, 19 August 2018, completing its journey from Shanghai (China) aboard the cargo ship Ever Safety, and was shipped by one of the world’s largest freight forwarders.

 The Bill of Lading for this shipment has been issued electronically and transferred with the help of an ultra-secure and reliable public blockchain network in just minutes instead of days or weeks, and the chances of loss, theft or damage to the Bill of Lading have been dramatically reduced to near-zero.

 At $15, the cost of such a safe electronic Bill of Lading was a mere fraction, approximately 15% of the estimated usual price for a paper document to be transferred through courier services across the globe. The whole process was completely official, compliant and hassle-free, which has been unanimously confirmed by all the partakers in Asia and Europe.

 The importer was the company Metro d.d., better known for their network of MANA clothing stores throughout the CEE region, with a chain of 200 shops.
"We are extremely happy to be able to confirm that all went well with the new blockchain-based electronic Bill of Lading, as this will give us the opportunity to lower the cost of importing goods significantly. We import hundreds of TEU from the Far East, and we are always trying hard to optimize our supply chain.
If it raises the safety and reliability of the document transfer, that is an added value for us as well!"
 said Miloš Košir, logistics manager of Metro d.d.. The exporter, the Hangzhou Doko Garments Co. Ltd., is one of the 1,000+ manufacturing plants in the Hangzhou region, which represent 50% of China’s roughly 600 ready-to-wear brands focused on the upper-middle class women’s fashion market. Their CEO, Mr. Lin, approves of the CargoX Smart B/L™:
”We were glad to comply with the new process, as it was really easy and swift to implement, and the possibility to oversee where the B/L currently is and always have the archive accessible are advantages that we really think could bring a great benefit to us. We are looking into the opportunity and the effect it would have on our company as a whole.” 
CargoX, led by Stefan Kukman, founder, and CEO, is now confirming the availability of the blockchain-based Smart B/L™ to business customers, with many successful trials already underway.
