Ocean Shipment Visibility

April 29, 2021
FourKites has introduced Dynamic Ocean, a next-generation visibility solution for end-to-end management of international ocean shipments.

Coincident with its acquisition of Haven Inc., FourKites has introduced Dynamic Ocean, a next-generation visibility solution for end-to-end management of international ocean shipments.

The solution integrates advanced document management capabilities, robust collaboration features and support for bookings, with end-to-end real-time tracking.

FourKites’ Dynamic Ocean solution builds on technologies gained through its acquisition of Haven. Dynamic Ocean covers 99% of global container traffic and more than 750 ports, providing visibility into ocean shipments. Comprehensive APIs enable data sharing between Dynamic Ocean and other shipper systems including TMS and ERP platforms. Major product capabilities include:

Advanced document management and collaboration features help shippers manage the complex and copious documentation requirements of international shipping, and collaborate with all parties involved in a container move.

Real-time messaging tools organized around shipments and workflows replace emails and manual processes.

Automated templates trigger tasks, set permissions, and prepare documentation, including purchase orders, bills of lading, courier instructions and packing lists, among many others.

Trading partners can collaborate in a secure cloud-based digital hub that contains all critical international shipping documents.

Dynamic Ocean sources data from:

Direct integrations via EDI 315 and APIs with all of the major ocean carriers

Real-time Automatic Identification System (AIS) data through vessel transponders

Schedule data across 270,000 ocean lanes, 120 carriers, and 3000+ services

Terminal data across 100% of terminals in North America and major terminals in Europe

Dray Carrier Integrations for true multimodal connectivity

Visibility into bookings via custom APIs with existing transportation management systems (TMS).

True end-to-end tracking that links ocean to rail, air, over-the-road and yard.

Deeper insights and analytics with ocean-specific reporting on on-time performance, cycle and transit times, detention and demurrage, and more.
