What are the best tools for ZIM tracking?

When it comes to ZIM track and trace, you have options ranging from using spreadsheets from your freight forwarder to manually checking ZIM's online cargo tracking portal, or leveraging unified visibility solutions for real-time supply chain insights.

Relying solely on spreadsheets or carrier-specific portals may hinder efficient shipment management or disrupt handling across different carriers and forwarders. Beacon’s cargo tracking solution, on the other hand, consolidates all shipment information into a single platform, enabling customized notifications for exceptions, detailed analysis of tracking milestones, and optimization of lead times to enhance overall supply chain performance.
