Get Heads-Up on Cargo Delays

Dec. 6, 2012

CargoSmart Limited’s VisibilitySmart alerts shippers and logistics service providers with daily, early notifications of potential delays and measures carriers’ on-time performance and delay reasons with monthly scorecards. Shippers can begin working with carriers as soon as potential delays are detected, gaining more time to adjust downstream operations. This system monitors and analyzes live vessel data through the Automated Identification System (AIS), sailing schedules, historical route patterns, and shipment plans to anticipate delays. It offers coverage of 21 carriers, 3,500 vessels, and 800 ports. It monitors three types of delays: skipped ports of call, missed transshipments, and late arrivals. A daily e-mail provides shipment delay summaries to support operations.
