Analytics Dashboards for Ports

Copyright IBM Corporation and GTD Solution Inc. 2021

Overview

Sometimes a simple status report is not enough. At times we need more information and more sophisticated ways of analyzing what is happening in our supply chain in order to optimize an outcome or survive a shutdown or stockout. TradeLens connects you to a world of granular shipping data that is relevant to your ecosystem. With TradeLens Dashboards you can leverage pre-built reports and analytics to help you make sense of all that information, transform data into insights, and improve your shipping operations.

Analytics Dashboards in TradeLens will offer the following benefits:

  • Global snapshot: Thumbnail snapshot of your global in-flight cargo, summarized in a variety of ways such as terminal or country of loading and discharge, cargo type, carrier, arrival time, and others. Drill down to individual consignments.
  • Identify exceptions: See potential exceptions that may need to be acted on, including ETA updates, extended dwell times, and transhipment risk.
  • Flexible deployment: Access Dashboards directly from the web, or use our template in your own BI tool so you can run the Dashboard from your desktop.

Note: The Analytics Dashboards feature is only available for TradeLens Visibility and TradeLens Collaboration customers. The dashboards are not included with TradeLens Essentials. If you are interested in upgrading to TradeLens Visibility or TradeLens Collaboration, contact us at https://tradelens.com/connect to speak to one of our sellers.

If you have TradeLens Visibility or TradeLens Collaboration and your organization has been entitled for The Analytics Dashboard feature by the Onboarding team, you will see an Analytics Dashboards link on the left menu of the TradeLens UI. Click on the link to open your dashboards.
