In case you missed the boat, our most recent episode of the Transport Operations Showcase series delved into the intricacies of managing complex ocean flows in the shipping industry. Headlined by Alex Listiski, Head of Product in the Transport Execution Tribe, the session focused on the challenges ocean shippers face and introduces innovative solutions to help streamline the shipping process.
The Current State of Shipping: A Fragmented Landscape
Many shippers continue to rely on manual processes, juggling multiple Excel files and separate systems to plan, price, book, and monitor their containers. This fragmented approach leads to inefficiencies, inaccuracies, and increased costs. To tackle this issue, Transporeon has developed a single unified platform that allows shippers to seamlessly manage their entire shipping journey, regardless of the different modalities and carriers involved.
Understanding the Complexity: Planning Multi-Modal Shipments
Shipping containers across continents involves meticulous planning, coordination with multiple stakeholders, and adherence to customs regulations. In a typical import flow, shippers deal with separate carriers for the ocean leg, road leg, and empty container return, each entangled in customs procedures. Transporeon’s Transport Operations simplifies this complexity in a unified platform where these aspects are all seamlessly integrated.
