Software-as-a-service provider CargoSmart Ltd. has created VisibilitySmart, a new visibility solution that alerts shippers and logistics service providers to cargo delays.
The solution provides shippers with early notifications of potential delays. It also offers a monthly scorecard for measuring and tracking carriers' on-time performance and delay reasons.
VisibilitySmart monitors and analyzes live vessel data through the Automated Identification System (AIS), sailing schedules, historical route patterns, and shipment plans to anticipate delays. It offers coverage of 21 carriers, 3,500 vessels, and 800 ports. The new solution monitors three types of delays: skipped ports of call, missed transshipments, and late arrivals. The system provides a daily e-mail with shipment delay summaries.
