Container tracking service

Fischamend, Austria: Cargo-partner has introduced a new tracking service for full container transport by sea.

The technology provides users with end-to-end data via the supply chain management platform Spot.

The new technology combines data from a variety of sources: shipping schedules and status information provided by carriers, vessel location data sent via AIS, as well as port and terminal information. Using geofencing technology, the time and place a vessel enters a certain zone are recorded.

Once the vessel has departed from the port of origin, the intelligent algorithm calculates the expected dates for the upcoming milestones – transshipment, arrival, unloading etc. – and sends them to Spot.

All further ports and stops along a container’s journey are also included in the tracking data, and milestones are continuously updated. Users can opt to be notified of any relevant changes according to their preferences. Furthermore, the new alert function enables management by exception focusing on deviations with high risk potential.

Stefan Krauter, chief executive, Cargo-partner, said: “We are continuously expanding our digital solutions to integrate ourselves more deeply into our customers’ supply chains. With this new tracking technology, we can offer our customers reliable end-to-end information on their seafreight transports. Thus, our clients have access to valuable data that supports their decisions on supply chain optimization and inventory management. Meanwhile, our operations benefit from the automated system which replaces manual data entry and ensures maximum efficiency and speedy information exchange.”
