English term or phrase: tracking & tracing/ carrier freight
These will vary from insurance, legal and other matters to warehousing, dynamic route planning and tracking & tracing facilities. In addition to the transport of FTL/LTL and carrier freight, LogiGo.com will soon include other transportation modalities.

Explanation:
Tracking and tracing are sometimes used as synonyms, but there could also be the following fine difference:

tracking = (Sendung) Verfolgung = (Sendung) im Augebehalten = you know where the shipment is at any given time. -

tracing = (Sendung) Nachforschung = (Sendung) Ausfindigmachen = you do not know where the shipment is and are trying to find it.

I have read "carrier freight" in the LogiGo site text and it seems strange to me too. It might be Dutlish or maybe they want to say:

carrier freight = (Fracht) Sendungen die von Transportunternehmen befördert werden -

This could be in contrast to freight shipments transported by the person/company who owns it.

I am not 100% sure of any of the above, perhaps if you wait a little you will get an answer from someone who knows for sure. - HTH - Dan
