Optimize a Container’s Transition From Sea to Land With Ocean Plus Rail Tracking

With Vizion’s Intermodal Rail Tracking in place, you can automatically push events to your ERP, TMS or other software system. This level of visibility empowers you to closely monitor the progress of your containers in a way that reduces costs (including costly detention and demurrage fees) while streamlining your global supply chain.

Shippers, freight forwarders and LSPs have traditionally tracked containers by calling carriers/railways and visiting websites. Vizion’s Intermodal Rail Tracking allows users to achieve visibility by automatically tracking across ocean and rail.

Manual tracking processes are time-consuming and prone to error. When you choose automated container tracking through Vizion, you save time while also eliminating errors. Connect our data directly to your existing ERP, TMS or other systems.

No longer are you forced to stitch together location updates and ETAs from disparate sources. Optimize your global supply chain and make confident decisions when you choose Vizion as a single source of truth for container location updates, ETAs and other data.

Demurrage fees and similar charges can quickly add up, cutting into margins and complicating supply chain management. Our Last Free Date and Container Available for Pickup events allow users to closely monitor and reduce per diem fees.

Ocean + Rail With One Request

Most rail tracking providers force users to create separate transactions for ocean and rail. With Vizion, users can track containers across ocean and rail with a single request.

Last Free Date + Available for Pickup Events

Reduce demurrage charges and boost efficiency with Last Free Date and Container Available for Pickup events at inland facilities, which typically offer fewer free days than maritime terminals.

Gap-Free Container Tracking

Separate tracking requests create a gap that allows containers to get lost and start accumulating fees. One-request tracking with Vizion eliminates the gap and helps slash fees.

Configure Available for Pickup Notifications
