Team is strong with a lot of experiences especially advisors. However, it is not new as I have seen several projects jumping in the industry so how to make yourself unique from them is still a question to me.
Another concern is about your pricing scheme which seems to be high while the market nowadays is usually dumping right after the tokens listed on exchanges. This could make investors hesitant to invest and it is hard to reach hard cap.

Although it is a fierce market, the team has solid experience. Hardcaps are huge and tokens are also expensive. What kind of calculations will you plan to achieve hard caps?
MVP does not work and I am concerned about procuring hardcaps.
Japanese translation is meaningless and will confuse Japanese investors.

Nice project. Amazing team and good advisors.
Concept and vision is really good. Whitpaper is in detailed which is good. There is no MVP which is minus point. Best of luck team.

A strong team and a fairly large community for such a project. I can say that the concept is correct, that the supply chain needs to be improved. But where is blockchain used here? He does not increase the value, and will only interfere. Is there a need for this when the market already has many solutions.

CargoCoin is entering an interesting space of global trade and transport. Transporting goods over sea, land and air is a huge undertaking with many different parties involved and mostly across borders and international jurisdictions. Cargo documents and payments can take weeks, if not months to clear as there are many intermediaries involved in the process of transporting goods from point A to B. Add to that the tendency of traditional shipping using the old practice of exchanging official "signed & stamped" original documents and you have a global transport industry that is inefficient, slow and not cost effective. By decentralising global trade and transport, CargoCoin can reduce costs and make the entire value chain more efficient and at the same time, more profitable for all parties concerned. Seaborne shipping is notorious for delayed payments and disputes which end up in arbitration or drawn out legal proceedings (as it may involve several jurisdictions at the same time). By using smart contracts, the entire process can be made more transparent and traceable (goods and documents) with payments effected as soon as the terms and conditions of a contract have been fulfilled. This streamlining of global trade and transport is beneficial to all parties concerned and it will ultimately benefit the end-user/consumer as the transportation cost of goods will be reduced and could result in cheaper prices for imported goods. In this regard, the vision of CargoCoin is unique and very forward-looking, deserving a 5 star rating.
The product is great, however implementation will be challenging, it's difficult to convince and industry steeped in tradition to change its habits and to adapt to a new technologically advanced system using tokens on a blockchain platform. Furthermore, there's competition out there so implementation and execution of project goals and objectives will be challenging, however the platform is well designed and will offer a comparative advantage. Hence, 4 stars for product.
The CargoCoin team is very experienced and professional and the board of high-calibre advisers such as Simon Cocking, Capt. Savio Gomez and Michael E. Bryant will be instrumental in the development and successful execution of the CargoCoin project. Good luck and great success !

-Team KYC passed.
-Well planned tokenomics with vesting period.
-How is the solution deemed to be different from other similar projects such as Shipchain, CargoX?
-Tough competition in this space to market the product.
-Platform launch planned in Q2-2019, no MVP available.
To summarize it - while ShipChain & CargoX may seem similar to CargoCoin - their operations are just a tiny fraction of what CargoCoin aims to be.

The team has really solid experience in the shipping and transportation business and seems the know exactly how to leverage on their network of relationships, contacts and skills. The analysis of the market and the design of the idea and project is remarkable, yet not breaktrough.
Nevertheless, a big competitive advantage on the competitors can be represented by the wide offer of services offered, ranging from manning recruiting to letter of credit.
The smart contracts will also be able to adapt to all types of transport and to any kind of smaller niche of the market. The roadmap is very long, as we can expect from such a complex project, but that add risk to the investment.
It's interesting the choice to use Erc223 over erc20 token, that, other than promising to reduce the need of gas for tx, seems also more appropriate for the intended use of the utily token cargo.
Finally, offering a free platform with no monthly or annual fees makes the growth of the adoption the only source of value creations for investors in the ICO.

Great Vision, good partition of the overall market into 4 stages. Even stage 1 is huge!!! I would love to see a geographical focus area and expansion plan. Big player buy in is very important.
Our MVP is on the way and will be ready by the end of the summer.
