CargoX Platform for Blockchain Document Transfer is #builtonEthereum #poweredbyPolygon

May 21, 2021, 12:29 p.m.

(Ljubljana, Slovenia; Bengaluru, India - 21 May 2021) - The CargoX Platform helps companies build trust in a trustless environment for the logistics, manufacturing, finance, trading, energy, and services industries. It is built on Ethereum, and powered by the Polygon scaling solution. 

It was built with a simple idea to tokenize the most valuable document in ocean shipping - the Bill of Lading - to avoid sending the document with courier services, and to transact it with the help of Polygon, a scaling solution built on Ethereum. Tokenized document hashes are sent between companies/users as needed using the ERC721 NFT tokens, while highly encrypted documents are stored on a distributed InterPlanetary File System. CargoX has extended the platform to support more than 60 types of documents, among them the financial Letter of Credit, contracts, certificates, and other documents that might need the transfer.  Workflows can be adapted, and escrow services can be implemented.

The user interface is very simple to use, to facilitate an easy transition of corporate users into the realm of blockchain technology. CargoX is using Polygon’s scaling solution for Ethereum blockchain transactions, and each user receives their private key, or they can use hardware wallets to operate transactions. Teams can be dispersed, and multi-level access is built into the platform. 

Polygon has established itself as the go-to Blockchain for high-throughput NFT applications with more than 250+ Decentralized Apps using Polygon’s technology. The collaboration with CargoX is a brilliant use of Polygon’s technology at scale to solve a huge problem faced by the global shipping industry, reducing costs, and increasing speeds in the blockchain implementation.

In 2020, the CargoX Platform was approved by the International Group of Protection & Indemnity Clubs, the body where more than 20 of the global maritime shipping reinsurers cover liability coverage for more than 90% of global shipping. 

Egypt ACI

Among the recent global developments, CargoX was authorized as the blockchain document transfer gateway service provider for the Nafeza single window platform, built by the Government of Egypt for managing all cargo-related documentation and information. The Egyptian Customs Authorities will demand all importers into Egypt to use the CargoX Platform for providing Advance Cargo Information (ACI) manifestation documents up-front, before shipping into Egypt, after July 1st, 2021.

India Port Community System

In the spring of 2020, the Government of India started to digitalize the bills of lading and other trade documentation workflows as one of the last missing elements within the country’s electronic Port Community System (PCS). The PCS, offering the P-CaSo curated marketplace of specialized services, was built by Portall Infosystems, and they have integrated CargoX’s Platform for Blockchain Document Transfer (BDT) into their environment for the shipping companies to use. The Indian Port Community System has seen a rapid three-fold growth of users since 2018 when Portall successfully won the tender to modernize the PCS.

CargoX, along with Polygon’s highly scalable blockchain solution, has the power to transform the international shipping business by bringing more transparency and decentralization to the logistics, manufacturing, finance, trading, energy, and services industries.

Stefan Kukman, founder and CEO, CargoX: “CargoX has always been on the edge of global trade development. We transferred the 1st commercial blockchain Bill of Lading in history in 2018, and soon after development, we started thinking outside the boundaries in terms of single blockchain networks. We built our solution on Ethereum technology, but we soon switched to the Matic network Tier 2 sidechain for its ubiquitous scalability, high transaction throughput, reasonable transaction costs at all times, and foremost their strategic vision of pursuing interoperability. Their Ethereum internet of blockchain philosophy is something we align with very well - we believe in the future business trust will be built on the interaction of blockchains!” 

Vjeran Ortynski, CBDO, CargoX: “We are using our rich business document processing experience from the field of logistics to help other industries - such as finance, manufacturing, trading, services, governmental and regulatory bodies - tap into the power of the blockchain. The new technology provides capabilities never seen before, to immutably, transparently, confidentially, and with a complete audit trail transfer the ownership of a document in a way that it cannot be tampered with. We are proud to help companies build trust with our CargoX Platform.”

Sandeep Nailwal, Co-Founder, Polygon: “We are thrilled to work closely with the CargoX Team, a company that is renowned for their Blockchain Data Transfer solutions. The CargoX Platform will help thousands of businesses bring transparency, speed and decentralized accountability by tokenizing Bill of Ladings, and we aim to strongly support their high-speed growth through Polygon’s scaling solutions.
