CargoSmart Wishes You a Happy and Prosperous 2018!

CargoSmart wishes you a Happy New Year!

We hope that you had a wonderful holiday season. We would also like to thank you for your support in 2017.

In 2017, CargoSmart leveraged advanced technologies to help shippers improve their supply chain visibility and shipment planning. CargoSmart launched a live vessel monitoring dashboard that taps into the Internet of Things (IoT) to help shippers track their affected vessels during numerous disruptions, including Shanghai port congestion in April, a cyber attack in June, and severe hurricanes hitting North America in August and September. Furthermore, CargoSmart leveraged big data analytics and machine learning to offer intelligent tools for shippers to improve route planning during the mega alliance changes and review carrier performance on specific routes.

In the coming year, we will continue to deliver innovative solutions that improve visibility and demonstrate our commitment to providing high quality services.

We wish you a great year ahead!


Season’s Greetings from CargoSmart!

CargoSmart wishes you a happy holiday season. May technology help you reach your shipping goal this season!
