The apparent invisibility of the containers, once the ship sets its voyage in the deep vast ocean, is every shipper’s nightmare. The cargoes comprising of billion dollar deals are then left to the responsibility of the crew members who are being appointed by a third-party ship management company. Thus the cargoes shipped in merchant ships or by any other means are exposed to great deal of risk and the deceptive loss of control evokes certain kind of tension which an experienced shipper can’t even deny. Perhaps in this era of technological advancements the container tracking solutions is like a lifeline for every shipper around the globe. The objective of a container tracking service is to achieve more information during a supply chain process including shipment.
However, obtaining steady information or getting a global visibility is something which is yet very challenging. The situation becomes more acute in the case of bigger shippers who have cargoes being sent to various locations through various lines (shipping companies). In those cases, the shipper needs to browse through the individual sites of the shipping lines in a hope to get the perfect information assuring traceability of the cargoes sent through them. This process of browsing through different websites and obtaining information is not only time consuming but at the same time it is very mindboggling as per as the shipper is concerned as he/she doesn’t only have to keep track of the container and shipment number of his/her containers but at the same time the individual needs to juggle through the individual websites of the shipping lines to gain a perfect information. So while they keep on remain worrying about the possibility of their cargoes being lost at the sea, they themselves get lost in the ocean of scattered information available on the internet.
The good news is that one-click solutions are not totally absent but they are certainly rare. Most of the services providing the shippers with a single interface container tracking solution are version but the good news for the shippers is that Sailors Club is one such network where Container Tracking facility is absolutely free of cost. The shipper just needs to know the container and shipment number and then can select the line from the available list. In this way he/she can check the status of every container shipped in every shipping line under consideration.
