It’s 10 p.m. Do you know where your cargo is? (Don’t worry, we do!)

At IMC Companies, one of the benefits of being served by our family of brands is real-time tracking of your cargo. We know that the whereabouts of your cargo are of the utmost importance to you. That’s why we developed our proprietary Sixth Wheel Software, so that you can find out the location of your goods anytime, day or night.

Here’s how:  Simply enter your reference number or Bill of Lading, along with your container number to gain instant access to:

  • Container location and status
  • Load event details
  • Documentation
