How Performance Monitoring Works

Vizion Performance Monitoring provides the most granular level of data for enhancing decisions, with data correlated to port performance, port pairs, and port activity. By focusing on three essential port performance data sets, Vizion offers the actionable insights you need to ensure that high-stakes shipments stay on track.

A digital interface showing vessel activity at Oakland Port. The display indicates an arrival to berth time of 0.85 days, with 3 vessels arriving, 3 vessels departing, and 3 vessels berthed. Another section shows a vessel dwell time metric of 11.18 days, highlighting operational data for the port. The background features a dark-themed world map.
01

GHG Monitoring

The Greenhouse Gas CO2 Monitoring report provides analytics-ready data that enables cargo owners and freight forwarders to obtain accurate CO2 emission values for their shipments tracked with the Vizion API.

Accurate

Obtain precise CO2 data to accompany your tracked container at the completion of its multimodal journey.

Save Money

Shippers can evaluate the sustainability performance of their suppliers by assessing the sourcing practices, the environmental and social responsibilities 

Coordinate

The response includes Scope 3 emissions, encompassing CO2e Well-to-Wheels (WTW) emissions for the shortest route, with detailed breakdowns of emissions from main engines, auxiliary engines, and boilers

A shipment detail interface displaying CO2 emissions for various shipping routes: CNSGH to BRPNG (2.255 t CO2e), MYPEN to USLAX (1.986 t CO2e), CNSGH to SIKOP (1.478 t CO2e), CNSHK to HRRJK (1.339 t CO2e), and SIKOP to USSAV (1.182 t CO2e). A graph shows CO2e average trends over months from February to December.

Port Performance

By leveraging historical vessel volumes and processing times, Vizion’s Port Performance Data Set enables end-users to develop a data-driven understanding of vessel and container throughput. With actionable insights into historical performance, end-users can then make informed decisions when route-planning and scheduling.

Performance is Key

Prioritizing container journey performance provides end-users with an at-a-glance understanding of end-to-end container and vessel processing.

Actionable Awareness

Global vessel events ensure that end-users maintain awareness over the events affecting their high-priority container shipments.

Maximum Customization for Insights

Customizable time-frames allow for easy comparison of data aggregations.

A performance metrics display for Jacksonville Port showing a 7-day performance average of 4.738 days. The performance week over week change as of October 13, 2023, is -0.560 days (-10.6%). A line graph illustrates the 7-day average performance over a period of time
03

Port Pairs

Vizion’s Port Pairs Data Set uses the latest U.S. Customs data to develop a volume-based metric for understanding of container volumes at any U.S. port. By harnessing U.S. Customs data to build an industry-wide understanding of container volumes, end-users can build dynamic awareness of the relationship between global ports of lading and U.S. ports of discharge.

Data-Driven Insight

With standardized container volumes from all U.S. ports ranked by port for YTD and prior two weeks, the Port Pairs Data Set provides end-users with unparalleled industry awareness.

Dynamic Intelligence

The ability to group shipments by port of lading and port of discharge enables shippers to access an at-a-glance global view of containerized freight operations.

Answer the Big Questions

With Port Pairs Data Sets, shippers can get answers to the big questions: What are the latest import trends? Do my preferred ports have seasonality issues? Which black swan events are taking a toll on U.S. containerized freight?

A world map highlighting container counts at various locations: 2 containers in Norway (latitude 59.47, longitude 10.3), 1,522,792 containers in China (latitude 28.56, longitude 117.8), and 69 containers in Arab Emirates (latitude 24.75, longitude 54.8). Yellow dots mark these locations on the map.
04

Port Activity

With Vizion’s Port Activity Data Set, end-users can access near real-time vessel and container movement metrics. On-demand access to real-time, core port activity metrics allows shippers to access invaluable insights, including the number of vessels at berth at a given terminal, average berth time, and average container dwell times.

Build Accurate Understanding

With near real-time visibility over port activities, end-users can build an accurate understanding of port side operations, including vessel volumes, import dwell times, and the average time a vessel spends in a given state.

Real-Time Reliability

Vizion’s Port Activity Data Set is updated hourly, giving shippers as close to a real-time understanding of container and vessel position as possible. Standardized, actionable data allows for the quick decision-making demanded in today’s maritime landscape.

Averaged Data for Future Performance

By including and averaging import dwell times, end-users build an on-the-ground understanding of current import conditions at busy ports.

 A port statistics display for Altamira with coordinates (latitude 22.5, longitude -97.9). The data shows 2 vessels at berth, 1 vessel waiting, time spent at berth of 1.200 days, and time waiting for berth of 2.020 days. The time of update is December 29, 2023.

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.
