PHILADELPHIA, April 11, 2023 – Chain.io, a cloud-based integration platform that connects partners across the global supply chain, today announced that GateHouse Maritime, a leading provider of ocean supply chain visibility and predictability services, will be joining its network. The integration will enable forwarders to view and use insights from GateHouse Maritime directly in their transportation management system (TMS).
The integration between Chain.io and GateHouse Maritime will allow forwarders to track ocean freight at the container and vessel level through OceanIO from GateHouse Maritime. Shipment details from GateHouse Maritime, like vessel name, voyage number, origin, or destination, will pass through Chain.io for translation and be delivered into the forwarder TMS or other customer systems.
“Freight forwarders spend too much time manually looking for and gathering information about their customer shipments,” said Brian Glick, CEO of Chain.io. "By adding GateHouse Maritime to our network, forwarders will have another way to access milestones and shipment details from within their TMS so they can stay one step ahead of their customers’ needs."
By integrating data from GateHouse Maritime, forwarders can receive accurate insights in real time allowing them to be more proactive in their communication with customers about shipment location or potential disruptions. The integration between Chain.io and GateHouse Maritime helps forwarders offer better service, greater transparency, reduced operational costs, and time savings with easily consumable container data, container tracking, and ETA data.
Ulrik Rasmussen, CEO of GateHouse Maritime, said “GateHouse Maritime’s platform combines more than 300 billion data points and more than 30 analysis and predictive models, helping 3PLs and 4PLs share proactive updates with their customers. We’re excited to integrate with Chain.io to bring this data to a larger network of freight forwarders.”
