Container Tracking – Vizion Integration

Container Tracking – Vizion Integration

VISCO is now integrating with Vizion. Vizion allows for door to door tracking of a container, by using only the container number and shipping line.  The tracking service includes ocean, inland and rail, giving users full visibility from the factory to the customer (or warehouse). 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 two types of updates that Vizion passes to 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. 2021-05-05_11-16-18 Milestone Tracking: The second type of updates that Vizion sends to VISCO 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: 2021-05-05_11-17-48 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: Subject: Container MSMU7258631 has had its ETA changed Body: Container MSMU7258631 has had its ETA changed automatically from 06/03/2021 to 06/04/2021.
