BuyCo overview

What is BuyCo?

BuyCo is a container shipping management and tracking solution, designed specifically for the maritime industry, that offers tools for gaining visibility into shipments, storing documents, live status tracking, collaborating on the supply chain, tracking costs, and more. In order to help maritime shipping enterprises with logistics management, BuyCo aids communication between suppliers, partners, members, customers, and other stakeholders, and provides full visibility into every step of the supply chain.

With BuyCo users can gain visibility into shipments with real-time insight into details such as type of shipment, location, current status, assigned tasks, owners, documents, and more. Entire containers can be tracked within the system which provides data on geographic location, ETD/ATD, and ETA/ATA, and notifications and alerts are automatically sent when any delays are expected or incurred. Information can be shared between the affected parties in order to increase transparency and ensure that clients are always kept up-to-date with the whereabouts of their shipment. BuyCo also facilitates the comparison and booking of shipping vessels, with the ability to view prices and negotiate rates, as well as manage contracts and book within the platform. Real time reports and analytics provide users with insight into KPIs and shipment progress across the entire supply chain.

Pros
The platform is very useful and dynamic. It provides a better way to work and so we can organize the shipments since the moment we ask for the booking. I also liked the platform communication with the shipping companies system via EDI, because If something is changed by the carrier in the booking, the BuyCo automatically update all the information on the platform.

Cons
Few types of equipments are not available in the platform. There are few restrictions for Open Top containers and IMO cargo containers.

Response from Buyco


Hello,
Thank you for your feedback. We have added Open Tops to equipment managed on Buyco a month ago ! Same for IMO cargo that can now be managed :-)

Pros
Easy navigation. Shipment tracking function.

Cons
The flag indicating a new document disappears after the document is just opened, even if the document was not downloaded. It would be helpful if there is a icon which indicates the document was downloaded or not.

it is very useful when you work only with shipping orders

Pros
The possibility to have all my currents shipments on the front page. We can create a personalized template for each customer with some of the last updates. We can chose the orders of the colums we need to see first. We can see in the dashboard the shipments with new info.

Cons
The setup does not last each time we go back we get the inital setup which does not take in account the modifications we made (column size, selected tab...) When we put some documents for other people with partner access only, the default selection is "for full access only" and if we don't pay attention and just press ok the people will never see the docs. A blank case with a selection to make would be less error-prone.

I had the possibility to inform the customers for all delay on their shipments, when the shipping company do not inform him via BUYCO

Pros
In this software, the better is the facility to use it ; all is clear, it's easy to find an information, if the shipping company put it

Cons
It's a shame that it's obligatory to return on all the shipments ; it would be better to have possibility to return on the last shipment and not on the complete list
