New Year Message From ShipsGo
We had a very fruitful year in 2019 as ShipsGo. We have created remarkable improvements and innovations in our products. We were always loyal to our mission "Organize the container shipping industry's information through our algorithms and make it universally accessible and useful to all parties in the container shipping industry". The valuable feedback from our users and partners have undoubtedly made the most significant contribution to our developments. We do always appreciate their invaluable input.
As we are approaching the end of 2019, ShipsGo has reached over 100 customers in 25 different countries. We have also tracked over 140K containers (over 225K TEUs) and updated more than 1 million routes.
In 2019, we have launched our "one page only" interface. This "one page" is the "search & visibility" engine of ShipsGo. "Search Route" engine allows users to search for all routes by using the POL (Port of Loading) and POD (Port of Discharge) options. Users have the benefit of comparing transit times of all container carriers. Users can also observe the alternative ports in selected routes. The second engine of ShipsGo interface is the "Track Shipment" that allows the users to track their containers for the sake of visibility.
We have also introduced our "Grow with ShipsGo" feature to our users." "Grow with ShipsGo" is designed to communicate the benefits of our digital platform in terms of operational efficiency and cost reduction. This tool is a simple page sharing the stories of the current customers and how to use Professional services of ShipsGo platform.
This year we have confirmed the validity of one of our fundamental principles. "Even the smallest of assets can change the course of the future." The youngest friends who joined our team always made incredible contributions to us.
What made us most happy in 2019 is that we have started to understand the importance of the data in container movements. In this journey, we are quite aware that we are still at the beginning of the road. In the first quarter of 2020, we are planning to share this excitement with our partners and users. We call it ShipsGo's "Analytics 360". In the first quarter of 2020, our users and partners will able to enhance their decision-making process by using "Analytics 360".
The container and its movements tell us many things. We believe that we can see and understand the value of container movements only with our partners and users. Our goal has been to develop new services that significantly improve the lives of as many people as possible in the container shipping industry. We still stick to this principle.
Happy "New Year" to all.
Ship Together, Go Better
