VISCO now offers automatic container tracking so customers have visibility on where their containers are from the moment they leave the supplier to the moment they are delivered to the warehouse or to the customer. The tracking service includes ocean, and rail, giving users real time updates on the status of the container, and changes in shipping dates.
Logistics Updates: By entering the container number in a container in VISCO, the user has the option to “Automate Tracking”, and allow the logistics tracking to be automated. There are multiple ways that the information form the shipping lines is used in VISCO. The first is general container information. These updates consist of Bill of Lading Number, Inland Origin, Origin Port, Inland Destination, Destination Port, and Booking Number.
Milestone Tracking: The second type of updates that are received are the actual timeline updates of the container’s progress. These updates consist of the event type, status details, whether the event has been completed, location of the event, mode of transport, transportation name:
Automatic Alerts: As logistics data and container events are updated, the system is watching these events and looking for potential issues that could cause problems in your supply chain. When these events are identified, the system will send automatic email alerts to internal logistics users, or directly to customers to let them know that containers are shipping, arriving, will be late, etc. An example of one of these email alerts is below:
Live Look: By clicking on the “Live Look” users can see in real time where that container is on a map
