Container Tracker Challenges and Solutions

Global sea trade has been trading blindly for centuries. Once the ship left the port of load with the goods, there was very little visibility on the whereabouts of the ship or the condition of the cargo till it arrived at the destination.

container tracker save time

Even with over 23 million TEUs being shipped around the world currently, the shipping and freight industry has been historically been slow to adopt new technologies and standards, unlike its airborne cousin which is highly standardized and regulated internationally.

This has left the ocean freight sector fragmented, disconnected, and sticking to old manual workflow processes.

The advent of containerization and intermodalism, made ascertaining the whereabouts of a container all the more difficult because containers move to remote locations with relative ease using a combination of rail and road options and the customer may not have visibility of their container all the time.

As a shipper, forwarder, or beneficial cargo owner (BCO), you know you need reliable visibility of your shipments. With so many different data sources, having an Ocean Freight Tracking System (OFTS) is vital. The demand for visibility has led to a variety of vendors and start-ups seeking to dominate the space and provide a solution. The JOC branded this burst of activity the ‘freight visibility arms race’. 

Ocean container tracking can be a challenge for any organization, regardless of what industry. Customer expectations are constantly changing, with the demand growing towards instant data and visibility. Shippers need to know where their containers are at any given time in order to better serve their customers and manage their supply chains, a process that grows more complex by the day.

As technology in the logistics industry continues to advance at a breakneck pace, staying ahead of the competition requires both a higher level of visibility into your supply chain as well as accurate, high-quality data to back it up.
