Check our Tracking System here.

We have added support for twelve more shipping lines:

  • Atlantic Container Line (ACL),
  • Admiral Container Lines,
  • Heung-A Shipping,
  • Ignazio Messina,
  • Australia National Line (ANL),
  • Pacific Direct Line (PDL),
  • Crowley Maritime,
  • Ethiopian Shipping Line,
  • Pan Asia Line,
  • Pan Continental Shipping,
  • Marguisa Shipping Lines,

Our improved data transmission algorithms expands coverage and improves the accuracy of cargo tracking, allowing you to quickly determine ship locations. We are in the process of negotiating with other shipping lines to expand coverage.

Virtual Office

Our Virtual Office is a universal workspace that can be used conveniently by our users. It includes features for managing logistics or trading business.

In this release we have restructured the Virtual Office to provide 3 profile types:

  • Vendor - free account for carriers.
  • Carrier - account for DFA members.
  • Shipper.

This ensures that you are working with reliable freight forwarders.

We have added the DFA Networks tab. You can now watch and subscribe to other DFA members or Vendors.

Your profile indicates the number of valid rates for you and your partners. We also added priority services for each company - land, sea, air.
