ITCO has published a new Best Practice Guidance Document, focusing on the topic of shipment tracking and automated milestone messaging.

Embracing Automation 

The tank container industry is experiencing a rising demand for detailed tracking and tracing of bulk liquid shipments, with customers, manufacturers, traders, and partners seeking automation platforms for real-time information.

Moreover, there’s an exciting opportunity for the industry to improve continually by using data from delayed or non-compliant deliveries to prevent future deviations. The key is to think proactively and anticipate potential delays, enabling customers and logistics service providers to stay informed through frequent and accurate transport milestone messages and ETA updates.

Laying the Foundation 

The ultimate goal of the ITCO Guideline is to establish an industry-wide “ITCO Standard” for supply chain milestones in overseas shipments. This standardized framework will be accessible to all customers, providing a common market norm.

The standardized framework serves as a vital foundation before implementing individual telematics and tracking solutions. It fosters transport visibility, interoperability, and real-time information exchange among all logistics actors in the chemical supply chain.
