Vessel Tracking

Vessel Tracking

Vessel Tracking involves real-time monitoring of a ship's location, course, and status, providing stakeholders with up-to-date information on maritime activities.

Vessel tracking involves utilizing advanced technologies and systems to monitor the real-time location and movement of vessels during their maritime journeys.

Through integrating GPS, satellite, and communication technologies, vessel tracking provides stakeholders with live and accurate information about a ship's current position, speed, and course. This capability is crucial for enhancing maritime safety, optimizing route planning, and enabling efficient logistics operations.

Benefits of Vessel Tracking

1. Enhanced Logistics Planning

Equipping logistics teams with reliable vessel schedules, including carrier-reported ETA, ETD, ATA, and ATDs for all ports the vessel will visit, fosters a comprehensive understanding of the vessel's journey. This facilitates effective operational planning and establishes a robust compliance monitoring process.

2. Contextual Insights with Live Position

The live position of the ship provides valuable context for both teams and customers, especially concerning the cargo on board. This information proves helpful for proactive reaction to disruptions or unexpected events and contributes to overall operational planning.

3. Minimized Demurrage and Detention Charges

Accurate ETA for vessels enables importers and exporters to plan container pick-ups and returns more efficiently. This proactive approach helps avoid additional charges related to demurrage and detention, resulting in cost savings.

4. Improved Customer Communication

Vessel tracking facilitates enhanced communication with customers by providing real-time updates on the status and location of shipments. This transparency builds trust and contributes to overall customer satisfaction.

Vessel tracking systems contribute to improved decision-making, better coordination of shipping activities, and increased transparency throughout the entire shipping process, benefiting those involved in the supply chain.
