Who is it for?

As a forwarder, shipper or haulier, you can keep a close eye on your container / trailer in Cargo Tracker. This real-time insight enables you to optimise planning. In the event of anomalies, you can make adjustments immediately. Which means you can work faster, more efficiently and smarter, both within your own company and in partnership with other parties in the logistics chain.

Via web and API

The new Cargo Tracker is available via the web and as an API. With an API, you can build Cargo Tracker into your own software system entirely in accordance with your own wishes. We are working on the revised API specification.

From cargo information to cargo control

Besides seeing and tracking your containers/trailers, would you also like to have insight into cargo details and immediately take the right follow-up actions? Then consider taking out a subscription to Cargo Controller. This really puts you in control of your cargo. Based on the track & trace information, you can quickly and easily initiate the subsequent customs procedures in Cargo Controller or authorise others to do so.


To use Cargo Tracker, you pay a monthly subscription fee plus a charge for each container / trailer you request. There is a one-off connection charge of € 249.50 (exclusive of VAT). If you subscribe to the service via API, you get free access to the web screens.
