Forth ports offers online box tracking

[ September 6, 2019   //   ]

Forth Ports Limited has launched an online, real-time, container tracking system for customers using London Container Terminal (Tilbury) and Grangemouth in Scotland.

The system is available at – and allows customers to enquire in real-time about the status of their container within the two ports. The system has been delivered by the company’s in-house IT team in conjunction with long-term system supplier TCS and has been designed to be accessible without the need for a login or password.

By simply using a container number or booking reference, customers can locate up to 50 containers with status options ranging from exit by vessel; exit by truck; in yard; and exit by rail. 

The new container search system has been introduced as part of an overall business strategy for a more unified and consistent service across the Group.
