Container Shipping Platform to Support all Your US Exports Requirements in One Place

Effective export operations demand thorough preparation. Failing to strategize shipment plans by not incorporating sailing schedules, ERDs, and cut-off dates can lead to a rocky start in the supply chain. This can result in increased transportation costs, poor customer service, elevated inventory levels, and the need for more buffer stocks.

In addition, export operations are particularly complex to handle, becoming a burden for logistics teams.

  • Shipment planning with access to sailing schedules, ERDs, and cut-off dates
  • Shipment booking with connections to all shipping lines
  • Shipping instructions and VGM declaration management with control over document and VGM cut-off dates
  • Automated AES US Export filling connecting directly to CBP.
  • Collaborative document management at shipment level
  • Tracking containers at every milestone, including actual, estimated and predicted dates.
