Improve Freight Tracking with Intermodal Container Scanning

Intermodal Containers on a Cargo Ship

Intermodal containers are standardized containers, used to transport all kinds of cargo & freight. With their widespread use in major intermodal terminal facilities around the world, enhanced freight tracking systems are a business-critical aspect in the management of every logistics hub.

Mobile scanning technology gives you the right tools to improve supply chain management & optimize cargo tracking systems.

Freight tracking with mobile container scanning is the perfect logistics tracking solution for managing the arrival, inventory & departure of intermodal containers. OCR (Optical Character Recognition) makes sure that your cargo tracking processes get efficiently recorded throughout your whole inventory & SCM systems – quickly and accurately.

By reducing the amount of manual data entries into your freight tracking systems, intermodal container scanning also saves valuable time for logistics employees and supply chain managers, while reducing costs significantly.

With improved freight management and more time to focus on core routines, you can optimize freight management processes and reduce costs at the same time. Discover the benefits of scanning intermodal containers with any kind of mobile device at hand and see how you can use it to further enhance freight & cargo management operations.
