Trapped in the Endless Checking of Sailing Schedules and Vessel Statuses?

Aug. 27, 2020

 |  Innovation

Carriers are reinstating sailings after blanking hundreds of sailings over the past few months. However, global supply chains are still far from what they used to be. Operations are delayed due to port congestion, labor shortages at terminals and warehouses, strikes and other unforeseeable factors, making staying on top of sailing schedules challenging. 

The frequent schedule changes mean that shippers and freight forwarders have to keep monitoring the latest schedules that are available through multiple sources and endlessly update their in-house systems to share time-sensitive information across the company.

Directly Leverage Quality Data with API Integration

When you need to manage thousands of shipments with multiple ocean carriers, you don’t want to spend a lot of time maintaining the latest sailing schedules and vessel statuses in your in-house system.

CargoSmart's Big Schedules API Integration allows you to access and tap into a vast amount of current schedule-related data on the fly. With an easy integration setup, you may access the data through your in-house system.
