Port of Halifax Offers Enhanced Container Tracking Tool

[ February 11, 2016   //   ]

The Halifax Port Authority is now offering an enhanced web-tracking tool for importers and exporters moving containers through the Port of Halifax’s container terminals operated by Ceres-Halifax Inc. and Halterm Container Terminal Ltd.
The existing site, Halifax Gets It There (, has been updated to include several new features designed to make it easier for importers and exporters to do business through the Port of Halifax. The enhancements are the direct result of feedback from the market.
The enhanced tool includes container visibility after vessel discharge (import) or before vessel loading (export). The container’s status is tracked as it moves through the supply chain (vessel/terminal/intermodal/truck process).
The enhanced container tracking tool allows importers and exporters to track a container by setting automated alerts that are sent back to them by email or SMS. Users can enter a single container number or upload a larger list of files and identify the specific alerts they wish to receive.
