Global logistics firm launches mobile phone cargo tracking App.

A first of its Kind in Qatar, Milaha has launched a Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) Tracking App for Smartphones.

Through the new, free App — named “Milaha NVOCC Tracking” (iOS, Android) — customers will have access to the company’s NVOCC voyage schedules, arranged by time or location, and will also be able to provide feedback on the company’s services.

“Further upgrades to the app are already underway and will include the ability to make rate requests and shipment bookings directly through the app,” the company said in a recent press release.

Established in July 1957 as the first public shareholding company registered in Qatar, it’s current activities include marine transportation in gas, petroleum products, containers and bulk; offshore support services; port management and operations; logistics services; shipyard; trading agencies; real estate investments; and asset management.

The new application will allow its customers to track their shipments around the world using a Bill of Lading ID or container number.

“In line with our commitment to provide transparent, versatile services to our customers, we have launched the Milaha NVOCC Tracking app, which will enable them to access the information they need on their cargoes wherever they are around the world,” Milaha’s President and CEO Mr. Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai said.

Very few NVOCCs and main-line operators have a similar mobile tracking app, which adds a layer of flexibility and accessibility for its customers as it complements its existing online tracking system, he added.

The launch of the “Milaha NVOCC Tracking” app comes as the Milaha group continues to enhance its diverse portfolio of marine and logistics services. The company has recently expanded into several new shipping routes and accelerated the deployment of new supply chain solutions across a number of countries. Milaha’s NVOCC services now cover 20 ports in the Middle East and Indian Subcontinent.
