SeaRates Updates - Week 13, 2021

If you missed our previous update, you can read it here.

Tracking System

This week, we’ve made improvements to the way we work with shipping lines including ITC Container Lines, Wan Hai, Hamburg Sud, Sea Hawk Lines, Cosco, ONE, Matson, Atlantic Container Line (ACL), Regional Container Lines (RCL) and Maxicon Container Line (MCL).

In addition, the metadata field is now available in the API response. We have also improved the validation of container numbers.

Logistics Explorer

We recently added the option to view rates in their original currency. First, the rate in US dollars will be shown, and when you book you can then see the price in the original currency.

Updated design for the Contact us page

We have redesigned our ‘contact us’ page on the Digital Freight Alliance site for a cleaner and simpler look and feel. You can now see the new design here.

Updates Pending

Booking System

Our IT team is working on the structure of the new Booking system. We will optimize the system to function more efficiently and improve the design, which will simplify usability and efficiency in booking.

Cargo Wizard

We are working on a new version of the tool which will give users access to Smart Documents. Cargo Wizard is at the same time calculating the optimal way to load a container or truck, providing the rate for transportation and auto-filling time consuming documentation.

We invite you to join our open group for communication on international transport activities, as well as our Telegram channel for shipping innovations and industry updates.
