CARU Containers is a global container trader operating eight offices worldwide. CARU Containers aims to make buying and leasing containers as easy as possible. Like containers, the company is always on the move, exploring new countries, new ways of trading, and new digital technologies.
The objective of the project for CARU Containers was to create an online platform to optimize the internal sales process. There is an abundance of data about sea containers from different sources, which makes the information almost unmanageable. For a global-scale business, it is vital to track and measure commodities.
With this in mind, Moqod has developed a web application that uses open data from APIs from different industry sources. Thus the web application is the streamlined source of information for the organization. The platform is based on multi-tier architecture based on AWS, considering the necessity to track a huge amount of data, store it, and keep the system performance high in different parts of the globe. The data is stored on an instance with Elastic Search, and Grafana is used as a BI tool to make data-driven decisions for the management team.
The agile approach to development enabled fast delivery and quick iteration cycles. So far, the system is in use in multiple offices of CARU Containers worldwide.
