August was a groundbreaking month, something we will always remember. The first-ever blockchain-based CargoX Smart B/L™ has successfully completed its historic mission during a trial shipment from China to Europe. The cargo ship Ever Safety carried its load from Shanghai (China) to Koper (Slovenia, EU), and unloaded it to the owner of the CargoX Smart B/L™ document. It was all official and compliant, and you can read all about it here!
“After confirming this operational test, the CargoX Smart B/L™ solution will be available to all companies within the next weeks,” confirmed Stefan Kukman, CEO, and founder of CargoX.
Journalists covering the logistics and shipping industry wrote a whole heap of articles about this historic event. Here are just a few:
