Tracking System

Made minor improvements to work with CMA CGM, Hamburg Sud, Zim, MSC. There are also a lot of bug fixes and other smaller improvements coming your way, to make the Tracking System experience even more enjoyable than it already is.

Also, good news for our clients. We have added support for the following shipping lines: Interasia Lines, Korea Marine Transport (KMTC), Shipping Corporation of India (SCI). Support for a number of other shipping lines is expected to be added. We have updated all added shipping lines in the Tracking System documentation. You can check out all the updates here.

SSO (Single Sign-On) on SeaRates, LandRates, and AirRates

Single sign-on (SSO) is an authentication scheme that allows a user to log in with a single ID and password to any of several related, yet independent, software systems. It is often accomplished by using the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and stored LDAP databases on (directory) servers.

If you log in to your personal SeaRates account, you will automatically log in to LandRates, AirRates.
