How to manage separate shipments with iContainers

As a seasoned shipper, it’s not uncommon to be dealing with separate ocean freight shipments made with different carriers at any given time. This usually means having to manage different reservation numbers, freight forwarders, and shipping lines.

If you’re a registered iContainers user, you may manage your separate shipments on one single page without having to locate reservation numbers or make any phone calls.

All-in-one view

As an iContainers client, you can view the details of all your bookings on one single page. There’s no need to log into the different accounts you have with different shipping lines in order to check on your booking status. This is what your ‘My Bookings’ tab looks like.
