Beacon Live Boards allow you to share real-time updates with everyone who needs them, bringing Google Docs style sharing and collaboration to the world of supply chain and logistics.

Simply filter your ocean and air shipments based on port, airport, estimated arrival date, carrier, SKU, PO or any other attribute, and create a shareable view in just two clicks.

Live Boards can be made public or private. With public boards, all users need is the URL to access shipment updates. Private boards allow you to restrict access to users logged into your Beacon dashboard.

Common uses of Live Boards include:

  • Scheduling port pickups with trucking partners

  • Providing warehouse teams an accurate view of incoming shipments

  • Creating a triage list of at risk shipments

  • Keeping merchandising teams and buyers in the loop

  • Sharing tracking updates with customers

  • Commenting to swiftly coordinate responses to delays and disruptions with your supply chain partners
