May 7th, 2018 at 9:52 pm UTC · 4 min read

The container shipping industry today accounts for around 60 percent of all the world’s seaborne trade, but this hugely valuable industry has been troubled for years by challenges such as;

  • Overcapacity
  • Low freight rates
  • Security threats
  • Increasing environmental regulations.

Blockshipping is creating the Global Shared Container Platform (GSCP), which is both the first real-time registry of the world’s approximately 27 million shipping containers, and a joint platform for all players in the container shipping industry – allowing them to efficiently perform a wide range of transactions related to the handling of containers globally.

Additionally, wide adoption of the platform will result in industry savings of USD 5.7bn annually through smarter handling of shipping containers and substantial reduction of the global CO2 emissions.

Since the Blockshipping token sale was first announced at the beginning of March, the reception to the Blockshipping GSCP project has been extremely positive, and the Blockshipping team has great expectations for the public sale.

Great tracker list ratings

Blockshipping has been reviewed by several leading ICO ranking sites, and the results clearly conclude that the Blockshipping token sale is in the top tier in terms of quality:

Global Media Attention and Vibrant community

In a short amount of time, Blockshipping has managed to raise awareness about the company’s token sale in most parts of the world.

Starting in Denmark and Scandinavia at the beginning of March, the wave of media attention spread rapidly worldwide with more than 100 articles about the Blockshipping GSCP project and the token sale in all continents in crypto media, fintech media, shipping media and broader business media.

Furthermore, only two weeks after the initial public announcement, the had a vibrant community of more than 8,000 Telegram members (now over 9,500), more than 7,600 followers on Twitter and thousands of views and shares of Blockshipping’s stories on LinkedIn, Facebook and Medium.

Huge Industry Interest – Announcing the First Client

The positive ratings and the overwhelming interest from both community and media have strongly supported Blockshipping’s firm belief in the great potential of the Global Shared Container Platform.

But even more important is the positive interest that Blockshipping is receiving from the shipping industry.

Blockshipping’s CEO, Peter Ludvigsen, explains:

“Traditionally, the shipping industry has a reputation for being rather conservative, but what I have experienced since the announcement of our GSCP project is anything but the traditional pushback on new business ideas. It has been like one unbroken series of positive dialogues with key players of all areas in the container shipping industry.”

“I am extremely proud to say that a few days ago Blockshipping obtained confirmation from a global container carrier that they will join our GSCP platform as our first customer. This is a carrier in the 10-20 global ranking who has also confirmed that they will join our Customer advisory board.”
