All your shipments in one dashboard.
Our platform puts your shipment and PO data in one place, removing the need to repeatedly check multiple forwarder and carrier systems for updates.
Being forwarder-neutral means you’ll stay informed and independent, able to switch between providers without losing sight of your goods at any time.
Live ETA tracking at a PO and container level.
Beacon aggregates the latest data through direct carrier, and port integrations, providing you with the most up-to-date information whenever you need it. Our bespoke email notifications flag ETA changes as they happen, helping you respond quickly, and minimising impact downstream.
Insights that power informed decisions.
Review past ocean shipments at a PO or container level, analysing delays and volume distribution by port pair, journey time, carrier, or freight-forwarder. Our digestible reports can be read, downloaded, and shared easily.
Track and offset carbon emissions.
We’ll track your port-to-port carbon footprint across all forwarders and carriers, and can neutralise emissions with carbon offsetting.
