Shipment Details & Visibility

Harness the power of in-depth tracking information right at your fingertips. Our platform provides real-time updates on all essential cargo milestones. Each tracking number is linked to a view of its associated container and PO data, revealing real-time lifecycle milestones from in-gate to empty return. This dynamic feature also gives you the power to approve, modify, or deny new bookings as circumstances demand. Plus, customize your interface to spotlight only the data paramount to your business, ensuring you're not overwhelmed but always informed.

Staying proactive: receive alerts when action is required

In the fast-paced world of global logistics, ASF clients are one step ahead. Our sophisticated shipment tracking system ensures this by proactively sending automated alerts directly to your inbox. By opting in for our notifications, you'll be the first to know of vital events such as changes in Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA), new bookings, and more. Our commitment is to keep you informed at the frequency and detail level that your business requires, allowing you to focus your time and energy where you’re needed most.
