GLOBAL TRADE & TRANSPORT
REVOLUTION BY DECENTRALISATION
The CargoCoin platform links the physical world of trade and transport to the blockchain.
CargoCoin’s foundation is based on two main pillars –
the first pillar being the online platform
allowing for various parties to connect and exchange information on cargoes, their transport
needs, as well as supplemental services. The second pillar are the smart contracts: those can be
used as just an electronic mean of recording the whole process from the offer to the delivery, or
could additionally be used to facilitate the actual payment, being it a direct payment, escrow
payment or escrow payment with partial funds release at various stages.
It is designed to attract a wide user base from a multi-billion dollars marketplace by introducing
and implementing free online services. The CargoCoin platform users

The size of the transport industry is tremendous
the global value of the seaborne trade
itself is over $12 trillion (WTO statistics). The value of freight rates is USD 380 Billion is 2017
(UNCTAD). Although the shipping industry is one of the largest economic sectors it is the
least technologically advanced one. Today paper documents are issued for all shipped
cargoes, no matter of the transport means. All original documents are being sent by
couriers, taking time and money. All cargoes and freights are being paid for in traditional
via bank wire transfers or letter of credit. Those are expensive, slow and non-
confidential methods. Increasingly more often USD and EUR transactions are being
blocked for weeks by US correspondent banks. Anyone in the industry has encountered
that problem. Original documents delivery delays and money transfer delays cause
unaccounted extra costs, opportunity cost & depreciation of assets, while disturbing a

proven hashing algorithm technology. There is no possibility of sensitive commercial
information leakage by intermediaries, such as banks, brokers, agents, etc. While it is

2. Introduction to Trade & Transport on a Global scale
Transport is a key element of the
international trade. Any physical
commodity or good which is
manufactured and traded is to be
delivered. Transport enables trade
between people, which has proved to be
essential for the development of
civilizations. The right mode of transport is
fundamental to ensure efficient and cost-
effective trade. The right partner, at the
right time and right price is essential in order to achieve efficiency. There are four ways of
sea, road, rail and air. In most cases more than one type of transport is used.
The shipping industry is the least technologically developed economic sector. This fact
allows us to introduce the CargoCoin and penetrate the global marketplace at faster pace
with relatively low competition.
