Automate Last Free Date Alerts

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.

Configure Available for Pickup Notifications

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.

Leverage Events for Full Visibility

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.

Know What’s Happening With Your Ocean Freight in as Close to Real-Time as Possible

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.


Enhance Your Visibility

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.


Eliminate Time-Consuming Processes

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.


Streamline Your Supply Chain

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.
