New Track and Trace Standards for Container Shipping

February 5, 2020

In an effort to transform inefficient practices and accelerate digitalization through a unified industry effort, on Jan. 28 the Digital Container Shipping Association (DCSA), in conjunction with its nine-member carriers, published a common set of processes, as well as data and interface standards for Track and Trace (T&T).

“We are thrilled to introduce T&T standards for the industry that enable its customers to reduce complexity, cut costs and, over time, better manage their end-to-end supply chains,” remarked Thomas Bagge, CEO of DCSA. “As DCSA standards are technology- and vendor-neutral, every organization providing shipment tracking information to its customers today will benefit by adopting our T&T standard because it will simplify data integration with carriers and improve information quality.”

The standards can be implemented by carriers, shippers and third parties to enable cross-carrier shipment tracking.
