Three new shipment planning tools for CargoSmart

New products aimed at improving schedule reliability and schedule disruption data to aid shippers and LSPs when booking.

   Global shipment management solutions provider CargoSmart has released three new tools aimed at improving shipment planning for shippers and logistics services providers.
   The solutions include a new version of its private-label sailing schedules, a new daily report to monitor sailing schedule changes, and an expanded sailing schedules mobile app that now allows unrestricted schedule search.
   The latest solutions allow customers to improve import and export shipment management with up-to-date vessel schedule information and historical schedule reliability insight.
   CargoSmart analyzes global vessel operations, as well as ocean carriers’ published schedules, to improve the completeness, accuracy, and timeliness of the sailing schedule data that is at the foundation of its shipment planning solutions. CargoSmart monitors factors that can impact vessel schedules, such as route deviations, port operations, weather, and vessel speeds to verify schedules with carriers.
   The Private Label Sailing Schedules tool allows non-vessel-operating common carriers and forwarders to provide ocean carriers’ sailing schedules through their own branded websites. NVOs and forwarders may now tailor the schedules available through their website to help their shipper customers plan, customize the schedules with additional fields such as shipping instructions cut-off times and container freight station closing times, and send special promotions to their customers.
   Schedule Delay Alert notifies shippers and logistics service providers of sailing schedule changes from the time of booking confirmation through arrival at the port of discharge to help plan for cut-off dates, export customs filings, and arrival pickup arrangements. The new daily report provides earlier shipment updates that are based on operational sailing schedule changes, rather than on shipment status notifications that carriers provide after cargo reaches specific milestones.
   The new app, meanwhile, allows unrestricted sailing schedule search for all ports and 28 ocean carriers’ schedules. The app also includes schedule reliability rankings in the search results and four-week performance trends for 20 carriers across select port-pairs.
