images6Z3M6084  So the moving crew has driven off with all your things, your house being called an “empty nest” is an understatement  and as you realize everything has now gone except for a few suitcases, you start to think, where is all my stuff and how can I track it?

Like everything else, “There’s an app for that”

Most movers have some sort of tracking on their web site (or should do in this day and age) but quite often they only give you the basics like confirming the weight and volume and may be what ship it’s booked on with an eta to the destination. To find out where your shipment actually is e.g. where the ship is going carrying your precious cargo, you need to get one of these apps for your phone.

Not only is this interesting for you, it can become a great geography lesson for the kids. Teach your kids and possibly your better half, about The Panama Canal, see pictures of the ship that is carrying your container and see where it last docked and where she is off to next! (The ship not your wife)
