Hurricane season

Logistics, Shipping, Terminals

Hurricane season officially lasts through November 30. If you're shipping cargo, are you prepared?

For major storms, ports can temporarily close and vessels can be diverted. Once ports reopen, blocked roads and rail lines can further delay deliveries. To complicate matters, getting updated information about what's happening can be a challenge.

Through all the chaos, we bring some simplicity to the task of tracking your cargo. To provide the most accurate data about shipments, we consolidate data from terminals, shipping lines, and traffic sources so you can see the location and status of your cargo in real time, without having to check multiple places.

So even if your cargo is diverted or delayed, you'll get real-time updates about the location and status of your containers, regardless of whether they're on a ship or at a terminal.
