CargoSmart Debuts Three Shipment-Planning Services

CargoSmart Limited, a vendor of software for global shipment management, is offering three new services to improve shipment planning.

Private Label Sailing Schedules allow non-vessel operating common carriers and freight forwarders to provide ocean carriers’ schedules through their own branded websites. Third parties can help shippers to plan and customize schedules with additional fields such as shipping instructions, cutoff times and container freight station closing times. Schedule Delay Alert notifies shippers and logistics service providers of sailing-schedule changes from the time of booking confirmation through arrival at the port of discharge. It will help customers to plan for cutoff dates, export customs filings and arrival pickup arrangements, CargoSmart said. The new SSM+ Mobile App allows unrestricted sailing-schedule search for all ports and 28 ocean-carrier schedules. It includes schedule-reliability rankings in the search results, and four-week performance trends for 20 carriers across select port pairs.
