Worry-Free Container Tracking Software

When shipping overseas, tracking ocean shipments is a daunting task as containers become harder to track once they leave a port. Plus, if one of your shipments does not reach its intended destination, it’s nerve-wracking when you have little visibility into its whereabouts.

However, Magaya Container Tracking takes the worry out of tracking your shipment. You can rest assured with easy access to important information regarding the different stages of the logistics and transportation process, including all the details of the status changes of the container.

The solution enables global monitoring of your ocean container numbers, delivering better control and freight management as your shipments move from origin to destination.

1. What happens when specific shipment events have been completed? Does LiveTrack continue displaying and tracking the shipment?
The system will continue displaying the events until the user manually removes them.
2. How is the Container Tracking extension different than the LiveTrack Mobile App?
The two work together seamlessly. Your customer sees events that are in your Magaya system. The Container Tracking extension automatically puts those events there. Without Container Tracking, you’d have to manually put events in your Magaya system, for your customer to see in LiveTrack. Without LiveTrack, even if there are Container Tracking events in your Magaya system, you’d still rely on email and phone calls to communicate those events to your customer.
3. What is the source of the tracking data?
Carrier EDI (Electronic Data Interchange).
4. Who sets the shipment statuses?
The vessel line sets the statuses.
5. Since container numbers are not always unique, does this cause conflicts for tracking?
Once the sealine has ended a shipment, this is communicated via the Container Tracking updates, and when the container is reused for future shipments, the system will not start a brand new tracking (unless you are shipping in the same container again).
6. Can we add multiple containers under a single shipment?
Yes, the process is just as simple as adding and repacking the additional containers on a single shipment.
7. How frequently is the shipment information updated?
The system pulls updates from the sealines every night, and updates can also be obtained instantly, on-demand with the click of a button in the Magaya system.
8. Can containers be automatically added to tracking when creating a shipment?

No, and this was by design. You do need to select which containers to track because many of our customers expressed the desire to retain control over which containers are tracked and which are not. Adding containers to tracking only takes a few quick clicks, and multiple shipments can easily be added in bulk, so the process is fast and simple, and still a significant time-savings as compared to obtaining the information from sealines and sharing it with customers manually.

9. Do I need the newest version of the Magaya software to use Container Tracking?
Container Tracking is compatible with all recent versions of Magaya software. Some very old versions may not be compatible. Contact your CSM for more details.
10. Does Container Tracking work for both import and export?
Yes! As long as you have a container number, you can enjoy the benefits of the Container Tracking extension.
