MANILA, Philippines – Port giant International Container Terminal Services Inc. (ICTSI) has updated its online container tracking system to further improve the operation efficiency at the Manila International Container Terminal (MICT).
ICTSI commercial and risk management manager Christian Lozano said the updated Track and Trace has been updated to version 4.0 further improving overall system functionality and user experience.
“The new version of the MICT Track and Trace further enhances the system’s overall functionality and value for both ICTSI and our clients at the MICT. As we have developed this system in-house, we could easily update and improve Track and Trace to become a more robust and dependable system,” Lozano said.
According to Lozano, version 4.0 features the new email notification function that delivers container movement updates straight to a client’s inbox.
He said users need only to enter an email address where they want to receive updates as the version 3.0 only featured the short messaging system (SMS) notification system.
“The Track and Trace system was specifically built to provide clients with visibility, control and automation, allowing them to stay updated on the status of their containers. The system embodies ICTSI’s initiative to provide clients with transparency, helping them improve their daily work output by giving them access to important information anytime and anywhere,” he said.
Container movement and storage period are on record, and stored in the system for three months. Trucks’ time of entry and exit to and from MICT are recorded into the system.
