300cubits signed up members of Coopernic Group to use its blockchain solution.


Hong Kong — Tuesday, 6 February 2018

Members of Coopernic Group, a large strategic buying alliance from Europe, have signed up to 300cubits’ Shipper Sign-Up Scheme to employ blockchain to tackle No Show/Rolling, a pain point plaguing the container shipping industry.

The No Show and Rolling are like two sides of the same coin. Customers in the container shipping industry can book their shipment space without having to pay in advance. When they do not show up at the port terminal with cargo according to their booking, there are no consequences. It is a consensus among the industry participants that 25–30% of the bookings do not lead to a shipment due to No Shows. Driving relentlessly for yields, the container liners respond by overbooking space, which circulates the problem back to the customers. So a customer with a booking confirmation from a container liner would still worry that his cargo may not be able to get on board the vessel booked as a result of Rolling.

“We and some members of the Coopernic Group are of course interested in constantly optimizing the supply chain. Among other things, this includes minimizing the high number of no-shows on the part of the shippers and roll-over on the part of the shipping companies. Against this background, the innovative system of 300cubits is interesting for us as a network, “says Stefan Blickensdörfer, Managing Director of SRTS Europe in Düsseldorf. SRTS is a strategic partner of members of Coopernic Group.
