Mountains of paperwork and outdated legacy processes have long separated and siloed different forms of transportation. This increasingly complex business challenge continues to drain operational efficiency and stands in the way of providing real value for your customers.
The remedy? The visibility and document management tools of TradeLens. They usher in a new era in digital asset planning for intermodal operators, so you can make informed, intelligent decisions and provide transformative value-added services across your supply chain ecosystem.
TradeLens is processing over two million shipping events and 25,000 trade documents every day. Learn how TradeLens can accelerate shipments to markets around the world.
Slow decision making – or worse, a decision you’re forced to make due to an unexpected event – is a business problem you’ve lived with long enough. To maximize utilization and stay ahead of disruptions, TradeLens increases upstream and downstream visibility with transparent, open and neutral information direct from supply chain participants. For any asset owner, TradeLens becomes a game changer with access to unparalleled data, improved planning cycles and optimized asset utilization.
TradeLens provides unprecedented upstream transparency of container movements, equipment availability and cargo availability at port.
Customers should never be left at the mercy of circumstances beyond their control.
A single missing document can sink an entire shipment for a customer. You don't want it to happen on your watch.
The true test of your business is how it reacts to its most challenging moments. With TradeLens, your customer service teams can finally elevate their role from reaction to proaction, where all participants benefit from working with a single, trusted data source.
Multiple data sources – often submitted in different forms, and often in conflict with one another – slow movement of goods and accelerate costs.
Legacy communication systems – phone, email and EDI-based systems – all changed the world.
Time spent waiting is time wasted.
Shippers need operators that can manage, share and integrate their data. TradeLens helps you create innovative solutions that unite parties across the supply chain. Help your teams focus on the customer by automating manual and mundane tasks that impact productivity.
A shipment arriving at its destination can be far different than the one that left due to unforeseen costs and extra fees.
What actions are slowed by frictions that you've always thought were the cost of doing business?
When IT resources are used to add value to the customer experience, you look at their investment in an entirely new way.
TradeLens integrates with users’ in-house systems via non-proprietary, publicly available APIs that are designed for ease of set-up and use.
Open APIs enable real-time data transfer between supply chain participants via publish, subscribe, query and doc share functions.
Reduce EDI maintenance costs with a family of open-standard APIs for real-time data transfer between supply chain partners.
Spur innovation at all levels of your IT division by unlocking creative energies formerly locked up in EDI set-up and operation.
