Ports and terminals

Optimize your shipment data accuracy with Vizion’s Pro plan, offering additional milestones like 'Free time to expire' and 'Available for pickup' directly from terminal operators, reducing reliance on carriers

With Vizion’s Pro Plan, you can experience enhanced accuracy and completeness of your shipment data with milestones not commonly reported by steamship lines, such as ‘Free time to expire’ and ‘Available for pickup’, which are sourced directly from terminal operators. This allows you to receive events like ‘Discharged from Vessel’, ‘Gate Out Full’, and ‘Gate in Empty Return’ without needing to rely solely on carriers.
