Manage by exception

Ingot tracks when your box is loaded, shipped on board, due into port and ready for onward distribution, as well as all data points in between.

Rather than micro-managing every shipment, Ingot alerts you only if there is a problem. This means you can spend your time proactively managing any delays and provide updates to clients quickly and easily.

Delay alert

Confidence in timings

You want to be sure your shipment’s ETA is accurate in order to arrange onward delivery efficiently.

Ingot brings together impartial live tracking data on port conditions, congestion, weather and the speed the ship is sailing to give you confidence that your container will arrive on schedule.


Protect your profits

By tracking shipments so accurately, Ingot helps you avoid the unexpected costs that can make the difference between profit and loss on a job such as excess duty charges.

With correct timings for when your freight will clear customs, you can avoid late pick up charges. Any extra costs that are incurred such as demurrage, are logged and added to the job costing, which can be automatically converted to an invoice.
