Cargo stream offers empty container app

[ February 2, 2021   //   ]

A Cargo stream, app which its authours say is the first in Europe designed to optimise booking returning containers using a smartphone or a computer, has gone live. They say that existing solutions are limited to desktop applications, and force users to manage most procedures by phone calls or email. The Cargo stream app, backed by the logistics accelerator in Hamburg, allows users to make container bookings and offers or search for a specific container. It facilitates a full exchange between cargo senders, forwarders and carriers and provides a single portal to manage the entire container communication with shipping lines in real time. A location tool also helps find and book suitable empty containers.
