Our schedules component gives insight on available departures of selected ocean carriers when evaluating booking alternatives. For other modalities like rail and short sea, we can incorporate timetables that allow for better planning but also for more accurate visibility when connecting to delayed ocean legs.
Your customer is active on specific tradelanes and with specific preferred carriers and contracts. Can you maintain a running overview of the available schedules over the next few weeks? Does this cover direct as well as transshipped services? Now you want to book an ocean slot from Antwerp to Chicago within the next week. Which departure slots are available at this very moment and what are the transit times? Only when this information is available you can make a truly informed decision about your logistics alternatives. This is exactly what our schedules component does.
- Pick up schedules data that are in line with the carrier’s published data
- Use timetables for other modalities like rail and short sea
- Have schedules integrated into the multi-modal planning process
