Ocean Shipment Visibility: Shining the Light on Shipping’s Black Holes

Shipment Visibility

What is Shipment Visibility?

Cargo shipments traveling across the open ocean enter a vast black hole in between ports where updates are few and far between or entirely non-existent. For logistics providers and shippers who depend on this news to get their cargo to its destination on time – late is already too late. Companies that receive news of delays only after a shipment arrives in port, must deal with a slew of unwanted consequences such as missed deliveries, penalties and fees. But with the right tools, this black hole is navigable.
