International container traffic has recently reached record volumes as traffic ramped up through much of the pandemic and container movements continue to grow.
In North American ports, there are huge delays in working the ships arriving from Asia and the inbound/outbound container imbalance is creating container shortages for export shipments.
Throughout this rapid business expansion, there remains a strong focus on supply chain visibility among ship and port operators, railroads and truckers.
Shippers and beneficial cargo owners want better tools to see and track shipments from release to delivery, in the same way consumers track Amazon or FedEx shipments. As consumers become more accustomed to better tracking and service standards, these capabilities are needed at every stage of the transportation and handling process.
