CargoSmart Limited, a shipment management software solutions provider that leverages big data for greater visibility and benchmarking, announced that COSCO Container Lines Co. Ltd. (COSCON) has started to implement CargoSmart’s online customer service and ocean carrier analytics solutions.

The carrier operations solutions help COSCON to optimize their vessel operations. Using predictive analytics, COSCON leverages CargoSmart’s global vessel and route data to improve planning, marine operations, and cost savings. 

Increased visibility to vessel operation exceptions and potential disruptions enables COSCON to respond faster and save costs.

COSCON will be using CargoSmart’s private label solution for ocean carriers for its public website. The enhanced website will allow COSCON’s customers to streamline their shipment management processes throughout the full shipment cycle. The new features include an integrated process flow for online booking requests and shipping instructions, cargo tracking, exception management, reports, document sharing, and customer support chat.
 
COSCON is subscribing to carrier operations solutions that leverage CargoSmart’s Global Vessel Voyage Monitoring Center (GVVMC). CargoSmart monitors a complex interplay of sea traffic metrics, covering 90% of the world’s ocean container traffic, to deliver unprecedented insights for COSCON to make better decisions. In addition, CargoSmart uses complex event processing and advanced analytics technologies to process immense data sets and provide timely alerts to COSCON.
