Automatically push container-related Port & Terminal Events like Last Free Date and Available for Pickup to your ERP, TMS or other software system.
Our Last Free Date (or Free Time to Expire) event alerts you to when demurrage charges will start so that you can plan for pickups and reduce these avoidable costs.
The Available for Pickup event lets you know the date when and the terminal where your containers can be collected, allowing you to coordinate with drayage providers.
Vizion’s Port & Terminal Events work in tandem with our other events to empower you to audit your detention and demurrage fees — and to verify that they are accurate.
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.
Shippers must clear all fees and know where their containers are located before arranging for pickups. Vizion’s Available for Pickup event allows you to eliminate time and money wasted when drayage providers arrive at ports and terminals before containers are ready.
Maximize visibility by using Port & Terminal Events in tandem with other events that share when containers discharge from vessels, when they gate out of ports, when they return empty, plus others. These events collectively give you enhanced visibility into your supply chain.
Case studies from some of our amazing customers.

Connect Vizion’s Port & Terminal Events to these leading platforms, plus any ERP, TMS or other software system.
Vizion automatically pushes Port & Terminal Events to your ERP, TMS or other software system, empowering you to reduce demurrage fees while increasing visibility into port activity. The result is that you can more proactively and strategically plan the movement of containers once they discharge at U.S. ports.
Few cargo owners or freight forwarders know what happens with their containers after discharge at ports. Vizion’s Port & Terminal Events give you accurate status updates that help you better plan and manage your supply chain.
Traditionally, cargo owners have made calls, sent emails and visited websites to get status updates on their containers after discharge. But these manual tracking processes are time-consuming, prone to error and impossible to scale.
Knowing when your containers are nearing their last free date and when they are available for pickup allows you to better coordinate with drayage providers. This level of visibility leads to better management of inventory and a streamlining of your supply chain.
Port & Terminal Events, when used in tandem with other Vizion events, allow you to better manage or avoid altogether costly fees. These events also allow you to audit detention and demurrage fees, verifying that they are accurate.
