The accuracy of prediction. We can inform arrival time better than shipping line website

It's our challenge to constantly look for new solutions for our technology to reduce the number of cases that you've mentioned, thanks for that feedback!

Visibility problem solved

PROS

The software adapts to the needs of the company almost in its entirety, the visibility it provides with respect to the container tracking brings a lot of value.

CONS

As an opportunity for improvement I would consider adding the name of the terminal to which the containers arrive and not only the port name, also consider mapping when the container is empty, between unload and gateout.

Vendor Response

Thank you for your kind feedback, Susana! We believe that the visibility at the handover points is especially crucial to enable smooth logistics operations. That includes arrival and container events at the terminal. Our team is now developing new capabilities to improve coverage for events at the terminal and we can't wait to introduce them to our customers.
