The Big Problems For Shippers
As industry profit margins are under attack, suppliers are finding new ways to hide margin opportunities in the supply chain.
Unregulated and wasteful domestic carrier routing and billing practices.
Deeply discounted rates are still much higher than available wholesale shipping rates. Wholesale rates are attainable with knowledge of industry rules and regulations.
Excessive inefficiencies, erroneous practices and unscrupulous carriers and brokers are everywhere.
Optimal carrier and route selection are often not disclosed by carriers, as regulatory confusion enables them to thrive.
Fat margins and inappropriate freight classifications in retail rates offered by carriers, brokers, and distributors.
Carriers have no financial incentive to ensure businesses utilize appropriate freight classifications.
Challenges On The International Landscape
Surging cargo volume and bottlenecks, lack of available space for expansion and overburdened rail lines are causing West Coast ports to overflow with problems.
Approximately $80 billion is lost by businesses each year due to traffic congestion, and such waste will continue to increase in the future.
While crews wait for cargo to be unloaded, steamships are burning gas, polluting the environment, and wasting money.
About 80 percent of U.S. imports from Asia are imported through California ports, with long lines of trucks waiting to haul cargo away.
Projected imports from Asia alone will grow by more than 300 percent over the next 15 years.
Delayed shipments result in lost sales and higher shipping costs, ultimately impacting your ability to remain competitive.
Ports are unloading containers 24 hours a day to support increased traffic flow, as West Coast ports operate at approximately 130 percent of capacity.
As capacity problems mount with shipments via traditional ports, businesses will experience greater delays and expenses.
