Sixfold helps freight forwarders and major shippers to track goods and vehicles in real time; Transporeon operates Europe's platform for order placement in logistics. This gives both companies a comprehensive, highly up-to-date overview of the actual flow of goods in Europe. This data on border waiting times is now presented clearly and free of charge on a detailed map:
The information is based on anonymised data from the GPS trackers fitted in tens of thousands of trucks involved in cross-border transportation. It is processed in real time and used to calculate the current waiting times at all European border crossings. This allows problems to be identified at an early stage and alternatives planned. The data can also help politicians and administrators to better assess the situation.
The border crossing time provided by Sixfold is the average time that trucks spend in the border crossing corridor. These corridors are approximately 10km long; their centers are displayed on the live-map. The data is collected over the past 6 hour period and is refreshed roughly every 20 minutes. The crossing times are not affected by trucks that do not cross the border.
Sixfold provides the information for free to help out the public. Please reach out in case you have any more ideas, comments and suggestions how we might be of additional help.
