The new basic in supply chain movements 

Do you need to know where your container load is at all times and are you still retrieving this data manually? Good news: Shipment tracking at container level is the new must-have for every TMS on the market. All you need is the Bill of Lading (BOL) and Scope.   

One of the most critical parts in the global supply chain that many logistics service providers still struggle with today is transparency in shipment tracking. Long waiting times at major ports, staff shortages, problems with imports and exports; any kind of interruption along the supply chain leads to delays and subsequently to unhappy customers. To avoid this as far as possible, full visibility of every single shipment is essential down to container level. Many logistics service providers still scan countless websites of forwarding agents, transport companies and airports manually, call or send e-mails to obtain the necessary information. This is time-consuming, error-prone and consumes resources unnecessarily. On top of that, delayed shipments or missed milestones cause additional costs.  

What if a TMS was able to provide all these functions? Imagine being able to track all containers being shipped from one single application, without manual data entry or time-consuming system changes, and being able to send your shipment data as a pre-alert directly to the participating import agent. All this is available with Scope.
