Keeping Your Shipment Visible 24/7 With Real-Time, Global Track And Trace
Posted on 12.05.2021
Being able to accurately locate and track your air or sea freight is of paramount importance to you as a business and for us as your forwarder. It means you can plan and we can manage.
Knowing at any time, where your goods are, anywhere in the world, and what the onward journey is, port to port, or airport to airport in real-time with live map tracking, can have a massive impact on your sales plan or your customer’s expectations, because you can have confidence in your import or export timelines. This is equally important to us at Amco, managing your shipment, being proactive and knowing that we can, if needed intervene.
Keeping our customers informed via automatic live updates of arrival at port or airport, and onward movement means the shipment’s journey progression and any disruption to the planned schedule can be communicated and managed. This keeps everyone informed and up to date, manages expectations and prompts any required logistics intervention from us, to expedite your shipment to its point of delivery.
Should an issue arise, we can notify our customers of any disruption to their shipment in real-time. This allows us to take corrective action (if possible) immediately, minimising any delays to the consignment.
Logit One™ enables us to manage and control end-to-end, multi-leg shipments spanning multiple countries, modes and parties. It is truly multi-modal and works with our Transport Management System (TMS), presenting a harmonised and coherent picture to our customers.
Why do Amco Provide Live Real-Time Visibility of Where your Shipment Is?
Supply chain visibility and reliable freight schedule information is one of the main challenges in the logistics industry, often having blind spots when it comes to accurate shipment timings and reliable scheduling.
We want to take our customer service to the next level through the investment and utilisation of digital solutions. We use a world standard digital solution called Logit One™.
How Does it Work?
Logit One™ is a data-driven solution that integrates multiple data sources and artificial intelligence to enable real-time visibility of shipments. It does not depend on expensive tracking devices or hardware.
Competitor systems provide limited information, for example, no shipment loading times, no port departure information and little real-time information, resulting in little control.
Logit One™ eliminates blind spots through the shipping journey, which enables us to provide our customers with accurate updates, including being able to proactively inform customers of shipping delays to better manage their own business processes. Knowing about delays in real-time also allows us to plan corrective measures and manage alternative solutions, such as selecting an alternative discharge port to help meet pre-planned deadlines.
Our investment in IT and cloud-based platforms provides further added value to our customers, continuing to provide high levels of customer service based on reliable digital data. The Logit One™ platform and its tools enable us to work smarter and closer with our customers, helping to manage our customer’s supply chain challenges.
Logit One™ is now embedded into the Amco IT system, we are the ONLY UK logistics business to harness the power of this real-time integrated system, helping us to stay informed and in control.
