List of container milestones

Below is a list of container events published by Chaine. Chaine first tries to normalize all events received from the different ocean sealines to the ones specified in the table below. Some sealines may not provide the complete list below, and in most cases they provide only a subset. To see how best to utilize these events, see the how to utilize events

Chaine normalizes these events to the following:
