We covered a lot of ground in the last year. Here are five of our most popular blogs from 2017.

1) Container tracking 101

In the logistics world, where data is mixed up and often messed up, it can be hard to know what's going on with your import containers. This post is a great place to start for those looking for easy solutions for managing cargo.

2) Why normalized data matters

If you're going to dozens of different websites to try to track down information about your containers, you're dealing with information in different forms and formats. Take a look at how we consolidate and normalize data from disparate sources, and how this can improve efficiency in your supply chain.

3) Container shipping industry terms and jargon

Gracing third place on our list is an overlooked but very necessary glossary of logistics industry jargon. This basic set of terminology will help you when you're dealing with ocean cargo and with our team when we're tracking down your containers.

4) Container holds and what they mean for your cargo

Container holds can add up quickly. This post takes a look at different types of holds that you may find on your cargo, and how to avoid them.

5) The year in review

Rounding out our top five blogs for the year is a recap of the major features we launched in 2017 to simplify container tracking. While our engineering team focused the internal algorithms that supply our customers with the most up-to-date data, our operations team tracked down the containers with missing or conflicting data.
