Disruptions to the supply chain, such as port congestion, service changes, and extreme weather, impact overall costs and performance and are especially challenging to overcome with outdated in-house systems, missing shipment milestones, and data latency. Shippers often spend several hours each day to consolidate and share shipment information to make it actionable.
CargoSmart is helping shippers to take control of their visibility. ForeSea is a global end-to-end shipment visibility and network collaboration platform that provides contextually relevant, predictive shipment visibility and breaks down traditional operational silos that exist within and outside organizations.
ForeSea lets you change the way you ship by connecting and enriching data from multiple data sources, layering it with predictive insights, and allowing you to quickly focus on issues that need immediate attention in your supply chains.
When you use ForeSea, you leverage the application’s connections to over 20 ocean carriers and live vessel information. Using algorithms to identify and fill in the visibility gaps from ocean carriers, ForeSea displays the most current estimated departure and arrival container status and cutoff times. And, you can collaborate with your teams to view and share updates through the platform.
Monitor dynamic estimated times of arrival and departures for your shipments with predictions based on live vessel data, historical route data, and vessel schedules. Reduce risk in your supply chain by easily identifying potential delays throughout the shipment cycle—at the port of departure, transshipment connections, and arrival ports.
Identify regions with potential delays and analyze trends in dwell times and port pair transit times so that you can identify issues to focus on for daily operations and for long-term port and carrier selection to improve performance.
