SAN FRANCISCO: March 28, 2019. According to Ram Siddarth Radhakrishnan, vice president and head of Flexport’s LCL Product, only 64.6 percent of FCL containers were fully utilised last year. He thinks he has the answer:

“At Flexport, we took a look at 2018’s data and found that on average, only 64.6 percent of FCL containers were fully utilised*. Put another way, nearly half the container space of all FCL shipments last year destined to the United States was unused, creating incredible inefficiency in global supply chains.

“The impact of wastage can obviously be considerable for a business. But there are far greater consequences that create a knock-on effect that damages our overall global economy and the environment. Underutilizing containers means that there are more containers being moved over the ocean, rail, and road than necessary – significantly contributing to a spike in shipping costs, port congestion, truck and chassis shortages, and pollution.

“We’ve developed OceanMatch, an ocean freight offering that matches unused space in [a] container with other Flexport cargo, optimizing freight pricing for [a customer] without compromising on speed.

“High container volume into ports causes port congestion, which results in demurrage, high trucking wait times and fees, chassis shortages, and delayed transit times. What’s more, that increased volume will become even more difficult to handle with the truck driver shortages caused by the uptick in freight volumes, as well as high turnover and retirement across the industry.

ram flexport"Much like how street traffic is caused both by a surplus of cars on the road and poor infrastructure planning, congested ports are caused by poor infrastructure planning and a lack of cargo consolidation networks. OceanMatch is a cargo consolidation solution exclusively offered by Flexport that maximises cargo efficiency to address this problem.

“By intelligently matching shipments’ specific weight and volume, lane, and cargo-ready date using our global network of structured supply chain data, we can consolidate cargo and fully-utilise one container – eliminating the need for multiple semi-empty FCL containers. The resulting reduction in port volume aids in reducing port congestion and its after effects.

“We also understand that transit time is a critical part of maintaining a smooth supply chain, and is often taken into account when deciding whether to ship via an underutilised FCL container or traditional LCL. But OceanMatch only takes an average of 1-2 days longer to destination than FCL, while traditional LCL takes 5-7 more. OceanMatch shipments also save up to 35 percent on cost compared to FCL.

“If the shipping industry were a country, it would be the world’s 6th largest polluter. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) is already implementing new carrier regulations for 2020 to help mitigate the impact of ocean freight on the environment, and Flexport is doing its part to reduce freight-related carbon emissions with OceanMatch by reducing the number of containers sailing less than full and reducing overall carbon impact.

“By shipping carbon neutral every OceanMatch container is automatically included in Flexport’s Carbon Offset Program, free of charge. Tightening up global supply chains with fully utilized ocean containers contributes to the reduction of port congestion and freight-related carbon emissions.”

Flexport says it connects almost 10,000 clients and suppliers across 109 countries by offering services covering ocean, air, truck and rail freight, drayage and cartage, warehousing, Customs and trade advisory, financing and insurance.

*A Flexport analysis of PIERS and ImportGenius data for all Full Container Loads (FCLs) imported into the US in 2018, accounting for both volume and weight parameters, showed that containers on average were only 64.6 percent utilised.
