CargoSmart Launches Newsletter Reporting Ocean Shipment Delays

Over 700 Shippers, Forwarders, and Carriers Subscribe to CargoSmart's Innovating in Debut Week

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 -- CargoSmart Limited, a leading Software as a Service (SaaS) global shipping and logistics solutions provider, today announced the launch of Innovating, a monthly, complimentary e-newsletter designed to provide shippers, logistics service providers, and ocean carriers intelligent insights about cargo delays around the globe. Subscribers will receive an aggregated view of shipment exceptions around the globe, reasons for the exceptions, and trends in the data that provide new visibility to improve their ocean shipment planning, operations, and customer service.

Based on over 12 years of shipment management systems experience and data, CargoSmart has found that on average, 95% of shipments go according to plan, while 5% of shippers' valuable cargo have exceptions. Reasons for delays include terminal congestion, labor strikes, previous port delays, weather conditions, engine problems, and lack of vessel space, all of which can lead to factory closures, missed sales events, or product shortages. The monthly newsletter focuses on three types of exceptions: skipped ports of call, missed transshipments, and delayed estimated times of arrival.

"CargoSmart's Innovating provides shippers and forwarders insights about cargo delays around the globe that can help them improve daily operations and strategic planning," said Graham Collins, CargoSmart director of sales and services. "We see growing demand from customers for deeper analysis about the reasons for cargo delays so that they may measure and strengthen their service and relationships with their ocean carriers."

CargoSmart's Global Vessel Voyage Monitoring Center (GVVMC) provides the data and analysis for Innovating. Located in Hong Kong and opened in October 2012, the GVVMC currently monitors and analyzes 17 ocean carriers' vessel movements covering over 3,400 vessels and 500 ports around the world. Using advanced analytical software tools, the center analyzes standard vessel patterns, compares them with actual vessel movements, and detects deviations that have the potential to cause shipment-plan exceptions.

The inaugural issue of Innovating provides insight on two vessels' actions around the Port of New York and New Jersey during the recent Hurricane Sandy, an interview with the manager of CargoSmart's GVVMC, and a captain's view of one vessel's maneuvers to avoid the worst of the storm. In the first week after publishing the newsletter on November 5 and making it available to CargoSmart's current customers, over 700 shippers, forwarders, and ocean carriers subscribed.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
