If you missed the last release of updates - it's time to look at it. We continue to move forward and plan to implement each step according to the road map of the project. Thank you for your continued support and interest!

Booking System

Platform update for all users: We're happy to inform all that we've updated the Booking System design. It's essential that we not only saved all the blocks and functions that you are used to having, but also added several new ones. As always, we welcome your feedback to improve our products and services.

Virtual Office

Added notifications to Virtual Office. Now you can be aware of new events with alert and event pop-up notification. Keeping track of every event in the Virtual Office just got easier.

Ship Schedules

There was a big update this week on the MSC shipping line. Now you can see more information on transshipment ports (ship names, dates, as well as services). We create high-quality products and constantly improve the reliability standards.

You can add your storage facility when choosing the type of delivery  FCL (Land). This is convenient because now you can calculate the cost of delivery from your warehouse or to the client's warehouse. This update also includes bug fixes and other improvements. 

Tracking System

Refactoring the Container Tracking API code to improve its reliability. Changes were made to work with such shipping lines as OOCL, Hamburg Sud, Yang Ming. Made changes to the API of the first version. We’re constantly improving and optimizing the location tracking module.

Great news - a completely new self-learning module for auto-detection of shipping lines for Container Tracking. Now it will be able to automatically select the shipping line according to your container number.

Digital Freight Alliance development

New members from the USA, Israel, Ukraine, and  Iran joined us this week. 110 members from 44 countries have already joined the DFA.

The Digital Freight Alliance continued to receive positive feedback from clients through its client surveys, with the majority of respondents expressing general satisfaction with the quality of the services provided.

Stay tuned for DFA updates on LinkedIn and Twitter.

Updates Pending

Load Calculator

Work continued on optimizing container loading. The part of the code responsible for recursive loading has been rewritten (reduced complexity, removed duplicate parts of the code), optimization has been carried out. The optimization of loading barrels in a container is under development.

Marketplace API

With the development of a global logistics services coverage strategy with the help of local partners, in addition to the universal Marketplace application, which has been used by importers and exporters for more than the last 5 years, and which synchronizes tariffs from shipping lines, we’re working on the development of a new Marketplace API.

Stay with us, keeping track of further updates in the telegram channel, and share your opinion of using in the common chat! Respect all the like-minded SeaRates who believe in the transformation of world logistics - after all, this mission can not be completely alone, and we believe in our community!
