With eCommerce becoming increasingly prevalent in recent years, many consumers have become accustomed to the feeling of instant gratification and the fast delivery of purchased goods. Whether you’re online shopping for shoes from a department store or a leaf blower from a home improvement store, once you receive confirmation your order has been fulfilled, you typically want to know exactly when your package will arrive on your doorstep.
Believe it or not, the same holds true for our importers. Once goods have been produced and the container is loaded, most only want to know when it will arrive at their distribution center doors in the U.S. Although the transit overseas takes slightly longer than a domestic eCommerce shipment, very similar events occur. The goods depart a point and then may transship in another, possibly changing providers (steamship line to rail) until final delivery at the importer’s distribution center – or perhaps their customer’s door.
Our PEAK View application provides users the mechanism to track their ocean import shipment’s progress without the need to track individual containers on a carrier website. Those same updates, and often others, populate our tracking application. Further, we provide a map visual of the main ports and trade lanes associated with the shipment. An email function enables anyone to share the link with a brief message, easily equipping your partners with ready access to the latest and planned events.
Leveraging our PEAK Technology, users can easily view and access the following functionalities when they view shipment tracking information, including:
