International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) has launched the new ICTSI App to give port users access to the company’s newest digital services.
The app grants port users real-time access to critical logistics data across ICTSI’s global operations.
Using the app, port stakeholders can monitor trucks, containers and vessels, as well as view payment estimates from corresponding ICTSI terminals in advance.
These services enable port users to optimise their cargo through ICTSI and reduce costs.
“As the largest independent port operator across six continents, ICTSI is leveraging digital platforms to bring new levels of interactivity and supply chain visibility to our stakeholders. From shipper to vessel and vessel to consignee, ICTSI looks to provide the most transparent and most visible logistics process while maintaining our shipping line neutrality,” said Brian Hibbert, ICTSI Group chief information officer.
The ICTSI app eliminates conflicting and late information by providing users with real-time visibility in the app.
Using the Watchlist feature, users can monitor containers, trucks and vessels and receive updates via email or SMS for every development on the container, truck or vessel being monitored.

The app also enables users to leverage native device-sharing capabilities to send information directly to the users’ customers.
Users can access payment estimates for their transactions and make online payments across a growing number of ICTSI terminals using the app.
Leveraging a unique and global platform approach, ICTSI is fast-tracking the roll-out of these services across every ICTSI terminal following the initial launch in the Philippines, where it is headquartered.
The ICTSI App is available for iOS and Android and may also be accessed via web. User registration is required to use advanced app features.
In June ICTSI announced it will acquire a majority stake in an Indonesian port.
