Issues and Challenges
Transporting goods internationally is more costly and complex than shipping them domestically. More parties are involved, lead times are longer, base transportation rates are higher and movements are subject to a host of assessorial charges that are difficult to decipher and calculate. Such complexity makes it difficult to effectively route ocean shipments to meet transit time and delivery objectives.
Identifying available ocean carrier schedules and transit times can be time-consuming and labor intensive, especially when done manually. Often times, transportation departments are manually accessing ocean carrier sites to obtain transit times and shipping schedules by shipping lane. This information is then analyzed to determine the optimal schedule and carrier.
