Summary

In the “post new economy” of early 2001, B2Cs, B2Bs, exchanges—all things e-commerce—had lost their lustre. Founded in December of 1999 by a Singaporean serial entrepreneur, CargoExchange.Net was a neutral, double blind Internet platform for the exchange of surplus global ocean-going container space. CargoExchange.Net illustrates the venture creation of a B2B marketplace in the Ocean-going Container Shipping industry in Asia, and describes how the business models emerged and evolved over time.
