Solving real world problems with the blockchain that Transport, and Logistics companies face today!
Changing the way the supply chain does business.
CargoChain Solutions (CSS) aim to solve real world problems that transport and logistics companies face today.
Our B2B platform uses the blockchain to resolve issues of ownership and traceability between partners, utilises AI (Artificial Intelligence) and machine learning algorithms to drive out inefficiencies in planning, greatly reduce dead mileage and empty running. and effecting instant payments for all job stake holders. Finally, and critically, our B2B platform effects instant payments for all job stakeholders, from production to delivery.
CargoChain‘s platform, ‘CargoChain One’ CCO is a all-encompassing ecosystem for transport and/or logistics organisations, CCO incorporates a marketplace that enables trading of consignments to, or within private groups ( ex: large organisation ) or public networks utilising blockchain technology for traceability, visibility and payment settling.
This multibillion-dollar industry will continue to grow exponentially, driven by rampant demand, underscoring the inherent requirement for the highly scalable CCO.
Great inroads have already been made in product development. In fact, the core of our modules are in production today. This Token sale is the final push to launching the complete solution. You are not simply looking at a concept, but a solution, in production solving real world problems today"
Product Road Map
Following the project inception in February 2017, we have been running a closed beta programme with some partner companies to test the core systems (API, Mobile, Web Platform) with consistent evaluation of the overall viability of the project since the July 2017.
This has been a major success, we collated the feedback in December 2017 and implemented this into our development plan for 2018. Our next major milestone will be the launch of the Marketplace beta, due for June 2018
CCS MARKETPLACE(UNDER DEVELOPMENT BETA DUE FOR JUNE,
AUGUST 2018 RELEASE SCHEDULED)
A place where carriers, shippers, customers and suppliers can post available jobs and notify each other of spare capacity. Not only that, our AI algorithms coupled with location services can find and offer work to partner companies in real time. No need to search for work; the system will find it for you and initiate the smart contracts required to complete the job and receive payment.
CCS CONNECT API(PRIVATE BETA – AUGUST 2018 RELEASE SCHEDULED)
The glue that holds everything together. The CONNECT API integrates the application suite and enables carriers, shippers and suppliers, with legacy systems, to connect to the network and partner companies, taking advantage of the marketplace, smart contracts and payment systems.
CCS GO(PRIVATE BETA – AUGUST 2018 RELEASE SCHEDULED)
The CCS GO (MOBILE) application allows drivers to have real-time notifications, communicate directly with the network and obtain customer signatures as proof of collection or delivery. If enabled, CCS GO (MOBILE) will also report geographical location information back to the network so that progress can be monitored and reported.
CCS HUB(PRIVATE BETA – AUGUST 2018 RELEASE SCHEDULED)
A no fuss responsive web-based interface that allows end users to manage consignments, create network channels with preferred partners, administer users for CCS-GO, monitor progress of active consignments on the network and view historical data. CCS-HUB is essentially a graphical user interface for CCS-CONNECT-API, the gateway for connecting multiple logistics partners together.
CCS PAY(SCHEDULED FOR Q4 2018)
A Stellar Blockchain based payment system to streamline settling between partners on the network. This is either by escrowing the job with smart contract triggers to release payment on certain deliverables, triggering payments to each party involved in the job chain or direct payment from connected bank accounts using Stellar as the payment brigde.
CCS TMS(SCHEDULED FOR Q1 2019)
A full featured cloud-based Transport Management system. CCS TMS is highly scalable, secure and powerful enough to run the largest transport operations, while being accessible enough for SME’s and owner driver operations; Job, Driver, Vehicle and partner management facilities. Powerful planning and scheduling capabilities with full reporting and accounting facilities are fully integrated with the CSS ecosystem. Drawing on our knowledge of transport systems this platform will take operators to the next level.
We have taken a different approach to most Token Sales / ICO’s to date, in that we have developed, built and tested our software in production before running the token sale.
Transit Tokens (TICS) are the platform currency, used to pay for transactions on the platform. Platform users will need to hold a “bank” of TICS to perform interactions with the API or Marketplace to list jobs, register availability or execute contracts between partners. TICS will also be needed to pay for subscriptions to the Mobile, CCS Web and TMS systems on a monthly cost per user basis, driving token demand. Any escrow services will be transacted in TICS, and the shipper will need to deposit TICS to cover agreed rates into escrow for payment to be triggered when deliverables have been met.
TICS are to be released on the Stellar Blockchain following the close of the token sale, and to be purchased directly from the Stellar Distributed Exchange (SDEX) for use on the platform. This allows us to take advantage of the SDEX to provide liquidity for our tokens in various crypto and fiat currencies from platform launch.
There will only ever be 650 million TICS created. As the network and transaction volumes increase, so will the value of the tokens accelerate to the platform users
The TICS will be issued at varying prices depending on the sale stage, starting at $0.07 per TICS on day one of the Whitelist pre-sale. XLM & ETH will be accepted for contributions.
There will only be a total of 650 million tokens ever created with 65% released during the token sales
The TGE will be split into two stages: Whitelist pre-sale & Public Sale.
The Whitelist will be available to contributors that pre-register their interest up until and will run for 4 weeks or, until the hard cap is reached. Those contributors that take part in the Whitelist will receive a discounted price, mitigated by the week of contribution. Hence, the discount will be more favourable the earlier the contribution is made
Once the Whitelist sale has concluded, the Public Sale will commence and will run for six weeks. As in the Whitelist Sale, the contributors in the Public Sale will receive a discounted price mitigated by the week of contribution.
All contributors will receive their tokens to a Stellar Wallet accessed through the Cargo Chain One platform that will be locked until the Public Sale has concluded. Once the Public sale has finished and the token is live on the Stellar Exchange the users will be able to transfer their tokens to any other Stellar Wallet of their choosing or trade them on the exchange.
Our soft cap for the sale event is set at $500,000, if we do not hit this target across both sales all contributions will be refunded.
Tokens will be distributed into a Stellar Wallet following each transaction validation and will be locked for transfer until the full sale ends.
Funding – Token Distribution
* Founding Team Token will be locked for a total of 24 months in Smart Contracts from the close of the coin sale with 50% tranches being released at the end of months 12 and 24

Early Adopters / Beta Testers
Below are some of the companies who have been beta testing our systems in a live environment since last summer. The feedback from them has been invaluable in the development cycle and we can’t thank them enough. As well as being early adopters they will be the first to go live on the marketplace when the beta launches and the full system is tested in the real world.
We are working on more exciting partnerships and will announce these as we get closer to the live launch.
