New Tracking Tool for Sea Freight
The new tracking tool „Smart Ocean” is a monitoring system that is used across sectors in sea freight and continuously shows in real time every station of the containers on the sea route. “Smart Ocean” was developed by the globally operated logistics service provider Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, together with the IT company Business Code.
“Smart Ocean” is aimed at logistics managers of companies in all industries whose supply chain depends on punctual and reliable sea transport. At the click of a mouse, the system provides an overview of the current location of the containers, independent of the forwarder, thus making it possible to compare the performance not only of the forwarders but also of the various carriers. Instead of following the route of the goods on track & trace pages of individual shipping companies, the users of “Smart Ocean” can view the collected data in a single system. This increases transparency of Container Shipping without changing the established delivery process.
