Efficiency and cost savings accompany visibility, but containers are often as difficult to track as the goods they contain. Now you can consolidate container status updates and standardize the data from multiple sources. With this insight, logistics teams can easily manage container movements—whether for day-to-day operations or strategic decisions. The overall results are lower demurrage, detention and lost container charges.
