International Container Terminal Services, Inc.’s (ICTSI) mobile app for cargo visibility is now available for download in the Philippines via Google Play and Apple Store.
The ICTSI App makes it easier and more convenient for port users to monitor and manage their shipments at the Manila International Container Terminal, NorthPort, Subic Bay International Terminals and Mindanao Container Terminal by facilitating access to real-time shipping information directly from the concerned terminal. App coverage will soon expand to include other ICTSI terminals in the Asia Pacific, Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Using the app, customers can place vessels, containers and trucks on a watchlist and subscribe to status notifications via email or SMS for timely updates. This eliminates conflicting and late information that could lead to less optimal logistics planning and increased cost. Users are required to create an account to get full access to these transparency features.
“By providing 24/7 real-time visibility, we are empowering port users to plan their logistics better and make sounder business decisions leading to lower costs. We are opening the door for businesses to become more efficient the same way that we are constantly improving our efficiency to better serve our customers,” said Brian Hibbert, ICTSI Group chief information officer.
