Real-Time Tracking and Transparency

Gain complete visibility—tracking containers in real-time with updates provided in seconds when a new event has been added or a change to the shipment has occurred.

Automated Data Processing and Efficiency

Rely on automated data collection and standardization and use webhook to get updates based on triggered events. This eliminates manual data retrieval to increase your efficiency.

Integration and Scalability

Integrate with existing systems and track every shipment frictionlessly. Whether it’s hundreds or tens of thousands of shipments annually, Vizion API scales to your needs.

Complete Visibility Made Effortless

Subscribe to a container and receive complete updates from various sources including ocean carriers, terminals, and customs. All it takes is a Vizion API key and the specific container ID and carrier code. If the carrier is unknown, Automatic Carrier Identification can help.

Technology Supporting Agility and Responsiveness

A REST API, Vizion API delivers JSON-encoded responses, with standard HTTP response codes and verbs for easy use. Webhooks enable your systems to respond fast to events in real-time, transforming your data management and increasing your agility.

Configure Available for Pickup Notifications

All ports and terminals give shippers a certain number of days to pickup containers before demurrage charges start. Vizion’s Last Free Date event automatically alerts you to when those charges will begin so that you can coordinate pickups with your drayage providers.

Integrate Vizion’s Data with Leading
ERPs and TMSs

Connect Vizion’s port and terminal events to these leading platforms, plus any ERP, TMS or other software system. Adding Vizion data to your existing systems empowers advanced visibility into a container’s journey.

Stay Updated with Real-Time Vessel and Container Data

Vizion sends tracking data to your ERP, TMS or other software system, allowing you to understand a container’s movements in real-time and plan ahead for arrival at its destination. With this level of visibility, you can frictionlessly manage the movement from sea to land and beyond.

Many sources of container tracking data are not updated frequently enough to be useful. Vizion's container trace data lets you track in real-time and at a granular level, so you can monitor your shipments and prepare logistically for their arrival.

Making calls, sending emails, or visiting websites for container status updates are labor-intensive, error-prone processes that lack scalability. With Vizion API, you get access to more complete data, updated automatically.

Armed with the knowledge of when your containers are approaching their last free date and when they are ready for pickup allows for better coordination with drayage providers for better inventory management and a more efficient supply chain.

The container tracking data of Vizion API enables you to manage or even completely avoid costly fees. This visibility also supports auditing of detention and demurrage fees to ensure their accuracy.
