ELIRON tracks LCL shipment all the way along the Silk Route
HONG KONG based cargo tracking solutions provider ELIRON has completed its first New Silk Road door-to-door LCL shipment tracking, based on the real physical location of a shipment rather than scans at certain points.
In the new Silk Route shipment, trackers were posted to the shipper in China, who attaches it to his consignment. 
In this case, the shipment went by road from Shandong province, on June 13, to the rail depot in Zhengzhou from where it departed on June 18. 
It then went by rail to Warsaw, Poland, on the LCL service, arriving on July 5. The forwarder picked up the shipment on July 10 and delivered it to Helsinki on July 13.
"The tracking worked very well, there were only a few blind spots in Siberia," said ELIRON chief executive Elias Heikari.
"Real-time visibility of a shipment is a big advantage for forwarders because of multiple transshipments and operators involved in Silk Route LCL shipments," he said.
"It's very time consuming to control each step of the transshipments, so real-time visibility helps in this and offers more comfort for forwarders," Mr Heikari said.
"It's very easy to check that the shipment has really loaded and train has departed, or crossed the border between different countries on the Silk Route," he said.
Mr Heikari said ELIRON solutions can be used by both forwarder and importer.
"Our customer was very happy, and was also very impressed with the visibility," he said. 
"The forwarder was able to build trust and confidence with the end customer and saved time." 
The new Silk Route is expected to be one of the main markets for the ELIRON tracking solutions.
