Ocean Freight Visibility API
Track your ocean container shipments, from departure to arrival, through the containers’ entire journey. Easily integrate Windward’s insights into your existing tracking systems and receive real-time updates on a shipment’s ETA, live location, predictive risk of delay, and location-based notifications on departures and arrivals.
Tracking can be executed by actively searching for specific containers of interest, or by customizing automatic push notifications that will update regarding changes to the shipments in question – directly into your existing workflows.
