GateHouse launches AIS-based cargo tracking system

GateHouse Logistics has launched a new Cloud-based service using AIS signals to provide real-time tracking of loads port-to-port, aimed at manufacturers, cargo owners, logistic service providers, container owners and other players in the supply chain.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The ghVessel system collects vessel AIS (Automatic Identification System) broadcast signals from satellite and land-based sources to calculate estimated time of vessel arrivals of loads at sea. Knowing the name of a vessel carrying a specific load, its arrival time at a port can be shown at on a ghVessel arrival board.

By matching the vessel and a load, logistics providers will be able to view the location in near real-time and to calculate an ETA at the next port. The ghVessel service calculates next-port ETA based on years of historical data and typical vessel behaviour combined with information found in the AIS transmission.

“Traditional ocean freight Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) often has days of latency between transmissions and is no longer fit for the dynamic logistics industry,” said Jesper Bennike, CEO, GateHouse Logistics.

“ghVessel brings immediacy and transparency of load data to ocean freight logistics.”{/mprestriction}
