Container tracking help - IE setup
Internet Explorer has a function for privacy that can lead to problems with display of tracking results for some shippers. In short the reason is that standard configuration of these does not allow setting of cookies from third party websites when displayed in a frame.
The affected companies are:
- Allalouf grimaldi.co.uk
- Finnlines grimaldi.co.uk
- Grimaldi grimaldi.co.uk
- Matson - Logistics matson.com
- Pacific Direct Line pdl123.co.nz
- Textainer textainer.com
- The China Navigation Company swirecnco.com
- Touax touax-container.com
- Wan Hai Lines wanhai.com
To make these work with track-trace in Explorer one of the following methods can be used:
- Open results without frame
- Use "Track direct"
- Configure Explorer to allow cookies for the domain
More information about using these methods can be found below.
Open results without frame
When the tracking result for one of the shippers above is displayed in Explorer a warning message is displayed. The warning message includes a link that opens the result without the frame allowing it to be displayed correctly.
Use "Track direct"
If you use the "Track direct" button the results will not be displayed in the frame in most cases and should therefore not be affected by these issues. The drawback of this is that you loose the option of tracking with other companies when viewing the result. Also note that this button is not available at the main page, you have to use the dedicated container tracking page.
