Better Visibility & Intelligence
for Ocean Freight

Deliver bulk loads, full cargo loads (FCLs), cargo barges, and less-than cargo loads (LCLs) through ocean mode on time and in full (OTIF) and meet quality controls (QC) by automatically capturing every shipment milestone without relying on any actor in the chain of custody. Accurately forecast and mitigate business-critical disruptions across the multimodal network.

Challenges with
Ocean Freight

Today, the most common method of tracking ocean freight or freight moving through inland waterways is through transport visibility aggregation, leading to:

Challenge #1

Unverifiable, time-delayed, and unactionable information about the products and orders.

Challenge #2

Visibility at an order level with no insight into network disruptions caused by individual containers or a group.

Challenge #3

Complete lack of information on the condition & security of the cargo.

How Roambee Works for Ocean Freight Visibility & Intelligence

Step 1: Visibility

Better visibility by combining order information with real-time location and condition data from IoT sensors programmed for ocean hauls and data streams from port operations, vessels, marine traffic, freight forwarders, and carrier data aggregation platforms.

Step 2: Alerts & Signals

Built on verifiable visibility, alerts & signals empower better decisions and drive automation. For example, a business signal about missed containers is derived by sensing milestone anomalies, enabling you to minimize ocean cargo delays.

Step 3: Intelligence

Use AI-powered network insights & foresights for better supply chain planning & execution. For example, score on-time, in-full (OTIF) performance by lane, port, and freight forwarder and forecast this key performance indicator (KPI).

Business Outcomes with Roambee

  • Orchestrate the flow of goods & use real-time visibility to collaborate seamlessly across all parties involved in the first mile, at ports, during transhipments, and in the last mile with a single source of truth.
  • Increase revenue by delivering a flawless order fulfillment experience and building transparency.
  • Build a sustainable supply chain by increasing your share of carbon footprint, including Scope 1 emissions.
  • Automate your order-to-cash process to speed up receivables and reduce working capital.

Empowering You With Our Intelligence


  • OTIF performance scoring by lanes, carriers, and nodes.
  • Quality compliance (QC) performance across lanes, carriers, and nodes for cold chain and handling.
  • Dwell-time/Turnaround time (TAT) insights into ports, transshipments, and shipping operations.


  • Supply risk prediction at any given node on any given day.
  • OTIF and cold chain compliance SLA (service level agreements) predictions by lanes and carriers.
  • Handling and security risk predictions at ports, transshipment locations, and during the first/last mile.


One of the world's largest, US-headquartered electronics manufacturer transformed their ocean shipping operations to deliver predictably. Roambee's intelligence helped identify the top 4 of their 54 lanes globally that contributed to more than 55% of their dwell time (idle time) when estimated on a "per mile" basis. It enabled them to further identify the root cause and location where dwell times occurred on these four lanes. The result was an improvement in average ocean shipment transit times by more than 20% on an aggregate basis and proportionally lower inventory holding costs at distribution centers catering to the last mile.
