COSCO Container Lines and MISC to join CargoSmart

by Canadian Shipper

CargoSmart, a supply chain visibility portal providing shippers with one-stop access to global transit information, has signed Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) with two of the world’s leading carriers, COSCO Container Lines (COSCON) and MISC, to add them to its portal.

The deals mark an important milestone for CargoSmart in achieving its mission to provide shippers with access to transit information from multiple carriers worldwide.

“COSCON and MISC have joined already participating carrier OOCL as premier members of our service,” said Joseph O’Brien, Director of Marketing at CargoSmart. “Since our launch in October last year we have grown our customer base to over 500 companies who log onto our service an average of over 8000 times per month and in addition receive customized proactive email notifications on all shipment transactions. We expect these numbers to increase rapidly with the addition of COSCON and MISC.”

The service provides carriers’ customers with, real-time shipping details, international sailing schedules, shipment event-driven notifications, tariff information, online booking processing and a sophisticated profiling tool for managing how and when shipment information is shared with trade partners.

CargoSmart is also planning the release of online bill of lading processing and shipment instructions to further expand its powerful application.

CargoSmart’s recently announced partnership with Hewlett-Packard has now been implemented to ensure that CargoSmart’s multiple-carrier customer data is kept private and secure. Hewlett-Packard will host all of CargoSmart’s data and provide customers with a 24-hour multi-lingual help desk, production services and control, application support and facility management.
