It is high time that logistics companies do away with manual tracking and adopt automated container tracking systems. Before the emergence of digital container tracking solutions, keeping track of all your global shipments was a time consuming, laborious process. It fell upon the logistics managers to manually visit the website, key in the booking number for each container and check the status.
Another major cause for shifting away from manual tracking systems is how the outbreak of the coronavirus and the aftermath, only brought home the fact that those companies that had more visibility into their shipments and knew exactly where their goods were, were better equipped to combat the consequences of the pandemic. To avoid major disruptions in the supply chain, logistics managers are soon realising that visibility holds the key to this problem.
And how can you achieve end-to-end visibility for all your shipments? There is only one answer to this question – invest in automated container tracking solutions.
Any efficient and real-time container tracking solution provides advanced monitoring capabilities that too on a single dashboard. It allows you to get live updates and alerts on the movement of your freight, which serves to effectively eliminate the need for manual tracking. Moreover, you have easy accessibility to all the required information, due to a centralized dashboard.

Some reasons to move away from manual container tracking…
Currently, most companies track their containers in one of the following two methods. One way is through location tracking – making the containers smart with technology, which is rapidly gaining popularity. The other way is the more traditional and painful approach – through communication.
When containers are tracked through communication, the logistics manager has to manually verify each checkpoint to make sure that the container is where it’s supposed to be. You will have to navigate to the website, insert the specific container number, Bill of Lading, or booking number in a search field manually and check for updates for each container, and there is no way to store this data anywhere. Each time that you need to check for updates, the entire process has to be carried out from the beginning.
To beat such challenges, there have been advancements in technology that have simplified container tracking. Any simple and efficient automated container tracking solution is capable of doing all this and plenty more, thereby streamlining your operations successfully.
