A single platform for your entire supply chain

One system capable of retaining and exchanging your entire shipment data while offering a portal for all your trading parties to monitor and maintain their supply chain - providing standard connectors, simple status updates, and global visibility - all from the one platform.


No set up required. No plug-ins either

CargoWise is a fully integrated, single platform solution, which means there's no configuration, mapping or maintenance required. And with all your end-to-end shipment data embedded into the system, you don't have to worry about plugging in (or paying for) any additional third-party platforms.


A powerful, global network

We have a powerful network of CargoWise connections, drawing in thousands of nodes that bring millions of further connections – each carrier, each forwarder, each shipper, each party to a transaction, each module, each geography, and each technology create further nodes, and with them, exponential connections.


Make accurate, data driven decisions

With access to a range of legitimate data sources, our advanced machine learning algorithms allow you to make informed decisions, reduce risk and respond to supply chain volatility.

Events flow throughout the whole of the container lifecycle, automatically alerting users when a milestone is set to be missed, at which point they can swing into action, advise impacted parties downstream in the supply chain, and plan contingencies.


Direct data connections to the world's ocean carriers

Our growing list of direct container line connections means 95% of ocean freight can be booked through direct carrier integrations with ocean carriers and NVOCCs - providing you with access to direct electronic messages for schedules, bookings, contract rates, tracking, verified gross mass, shipping instructions, and bill of lading data.

I can very happily say that we've rolled out CargoWise to our entire ocean freight organization. For us to have just one global application is great, because a global application helps you to really show that the quality of your service is the same everywhere."

Optimize your quote to booking process

When a quote is received, CargoWise generates the cost rate and optimizes this for air and sea by using real-time carrier tariffs. Margins and surcharges are pre-populated, and you can choose the most suitable rate and route to maximize your profits. Once the quote is accepted, all information is transferred directly into the booking, without re-keying or re-entering any data. 

Monitor job shipments with ease 

Container movement updates are made available in real-time, removing the need to scour carrier websites. If a container is delayed, you are notified immediately and the appropriate messages can be triggered, keeping customers informed and helping to reduce penalties and wasted charges along the way. 

Automate and streamline your operations

At every stage of a shipment, completed tasks can automatically close and the system will generate and distribute the updated documentation and EDI, including transport documents, bills of lading and invoices. CargoWise can also automatically raise exceptions - such as a missed cargo ready date - to keep everyone updated on the cargo's status and minimize delays.

Easily configure workflow templates for different shipment types (based on modes, trade lanes, directions or clients), allowing you to alter screen layouts and add custom fields to reflect the unique needs of each project.

Make it easy for your team members to keep track of their own individual tasks and make sure everyone knows what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, and who is responsible for completing upcoming items, with real-time visibility of individual shipment jobs.

From the point of pickup through to delivery, we provide data connectivity from multiple parties including shipping lines, port systems, vessel AIS, as well as customs and transport, to provide the most complete picture of your cargo movements. This is all in addition to your internal events, such as document creation, invoice production, and more.

Whether you need to alert different parties to tasks that are needed to complete a milestone, send documents to outside parties or send correspondence to different parties when tasks are completed, CargoWise triggers will automatically do this for you.

A full log of every current and historical exception, with configurable alerts to automatically notify you if something is missed or nearing its deadline means you can better forecast timeline expectations and identify and amend repeated operational mistakes.
