Its data is called Google Map data, using the Google Map platform to simplify global transportation, so it has great reference value in our practical application.
However, it is important to consider that the complexity of customs procedures and potential delays at border crossings can affect the transit time of shipments. Factors such as the volume of cargo being processed, the accuracy of documentation, and any unforeseen inspection or regulatory requirements can also lead to longer transit times. So, the search results will also match this route, and output some real-time data from the shipping company, and now you can use this tool to answer the few questions at the beginning of the article.
