THE Container xChange poll shows that 60 per cent of freight forwarders, NVOCCs, and traders, find it challenging to keep track of pick-up and drop-off of containers, reports PR Newswire.
Fifty-seven per cent of forwarders declared containers as their biggest challenge in the coming peak season, and 43 per cent poll for "lack of real-time visibility" as the second biggest challenge.
"As the container logistic industry still grapples with unprecedented challenges, it becomes important that companies realise the power of digital adoption for tackling future uncertainties," said Container xChange CEO Johannes Schlingmeier.
"Container Control is a tool for freight forwarders that gives visibility into a container's journey from pickup to drop off and provide transparency for a user, so they can save time on manual repetitive tasks. Thus, the aim is to increase container operations per month and deliver better customer service," he said.
"The idea is to automate the container management process for freight forwarders so they can focus less on manual operational work processes and more on expanding their business across geographies. We equip them with the data and processes that simplify their business. And for the industry, it solves the challenge of monitoring and managing containers all at one single sophisticated platform," said Mr Schlingmeier.
"From the moment the container is born, to its last journey, we want to digitalise every process and this product is a huge step in the right direction. By bringing all the parties online, Container Control will transform the way container logistic companies connect and do business."
