Orchestrate the unreliable touchpoints in your sea supply chain

Moving your cargo by sea is complex and unpredictable. Even when you’re well-prepared, problems can occur at multiple touchpoints on the way from shipper to consignee.

Hitting the right notes

Every shipment harbours the potential for delays at any touchpoint in the journey. Staying attuned to what they are and where they happen lets you make decisions to mitigate their impact.

From our experience, 99 out of 100 sea transports do not proceed as planned due to challenges at one or more of these touchpoints.

Additional COVID-19 pandemic impacts

Since the beginning of 2020, global sea freight has faced added challenges that affected the rhythm of everyone’s supply chain. The abrupt initial decline in shipping, followed by a sharp upturn, resulted in significant disruptions including an all-time peak in schedule delays, equipment challenges and port congestion. These challenges have made the complex and fragile relationships and touchpoints in the supply chain all the more apparent.Orchestrate the unreliable touchpoints in your sea supply chain
