Low Sulphur Cap, Green Shipping and Corporate Citizenship
TIM CONSULT realizes survey among MII Global Ocean Transport members

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

As part of a survey realized in March, TIM CONSULT asked members of the Market Intelligence Initiative Global Ocean Transport and other interested shippers about their expectations concerning reduction of the sulfur maximum content in bunker oil from 2020 onwards, their opinions on green shipping, and their corporate citizenship regarding environmental sustainability.

32 responses were received from companies in Consumer Goods, Chemicals, Paper & Packaging, and Technology sectors, answering 39 survey questions.

The survey results show conclusively that shippers have high concerns about freight rate impacts from the sulfur cap regulations. The majority indicated that significant container freight rate increases from 2020 onwards can be anticipated.

Almost half of the participants expect liner shipping companies to modify their vessel operations to consume the expensive low sulfur fuel instead of conversion to exhaust gas cleaner/scrubber or LNG propulsion.

Opinions regarding green shipping and corporate citizenship over the next five years also show clear trends. 84% of the participants believe that environmental consciousness will become more influential in business conduct and 70% expect their companies to increase corporate citizenship initiatives regarding environmental issues.

These are partial results of our survey. If you would like to receive details, please contact Stefan Diener at TIM CONSULT. He will be pleased to answer your questions and provide further information.

Optimized Container Logistics Procurement Through Advanced Benchmarking and Market Intelligence
Björn Klippel contributes article to guide “Container Logistics”

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

Whilst the maritime container business has been studied in depth, the impact on shippers and how shippers deal with the given challenges has not been fully examined. The book “Container Logistics – The Role of the Container in the Supply Chain” bridges this gap and looks at the maritime business from a customer’s perspective. The book examines the challenges, solutions and the latest developments in the container industry as well as the interaction between the different actors involved, such as freight forwarders, supply chain managers and shippers. Current hot topics from the supply chain and the maritime business perspective are included.

This makes “Container Logistics” an essential guide for supply chain managers and shippers, as well as academics and industry professionals working in the maritime business.

The book has been edited by Dr. Rolf Neise, expert for supply chain management and logistics structures and lecturer at the International School of Management (ISM). For this publication, Dr. Rolf Neise had gathered an international team of experts who delivered invaluable contributions with the inclusion of clear examples of best practice and bona fide case studies.

We are very pleased that Björn Klippel, Managing Director TIM CONSULT, was invited to contribute to this interesting guide.

In his article “Advanced benchmarking and market intelligence – a key instrument in optimizing container logistics procurement” Björn Klippel presents the impact of efficient benchmarking and market knowledge on optimal procurement management.

“Container Logistics – The Role of the Container in the Supply Chain” has been published by Kogan Page Limited and is available since beginning of May.

The book can be purchased here: www.koganpage.com/CLog

Fireside Chat North America
Intralogistik-NetzwerkBW and TIM CONSULT host event

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

In the seasonal spirit, TM CONSULT and the intralogistics network „Intralogistik-Netzwerk Baden Württemberg“ met in Mannheim on 14 December 2017 for a fireside chat to discuss “Business Development and Logistics Trends in North America“.

Gerhard Mutter, Member of the Executive Board Logistics Automation, SICK AG, and Björn Klippel, Managing Director, TIM CONSULT GmbH, moderated the event.

15 participants discussed the business opportunities and challenges arising from rapid automation and digitization of the US intralogistics sector (warehouse, material flow, transportation). On one hand, German producers of sensors, automation tools, and conveyor technology have a dominant position in Europe but are not yet at a comparable level in the USA. Penetrating and expanding in this vast market is complex given established native competitors. High start-up costs may conflict with strategic objectives.

Conversation also addressed the following questions: What would be the expectations that German technology could replace existing processes? Are German companies organizationally positioned for success in terms of location, competencies, and cost competitiveness? Should markets be approached directly or via intermediaries? Should Canada and Mexico be grouped together or considered as separate markets?

Attendees were careful listeners and active contributors as these topics were examined in detail. Robert Maidman, Director North America, TIM CONSULT Inc., participated via web conference. He shared his experiences from daily business contacts and provided useful insights into strategies and operational trends of US competitors. After the web conference, individual discussions continued on TIM CONSULT’s roof top – with snacks, drinks and a virtual chimney fire.

TIM CONSULT’s experts are at your disposition and will be pleased to answer any questions regarding the US market and US logistics. They will be pleased to speak with you.

Retrospective of the 7th TIM CONSULT Transport Day – International CEP Transports
Intelligent strategies to counter market concentration

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

How can shippers address supplier concentration in the Courier, Express and Parcel Services (CEP) market intelligently? What is the best strategy for continuing to purchase inexpensively and with a high quality of service? Are collaborations a good way to counter market concentration?

Exciting questions on the 7th TIM CONSULT Transport Day, held on November 7, 2017 and organized together with BVL Regional Group Rhein/Neckar led to lively discussions among the more than 50 participants.

Patrick Mense, BVL Regional Group Spokesman, and Björn Klippel, Managing Director of TIM CONSULT, welcomed the participants together with Prof. Dr. Michael Schröder, Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW).

Participants were provided with a structured overview of current market information on Europe-wide and global CEP services, insight into best practices in purchasing, and experience reports from leading companies.

With Lars Schumm, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, and Andreas Kuhn, Saint-Gobain Isover G+H, managers from respected industrial companies described their strategic solutions.

In addition, renowned transport service providers provided insights into their strategies and the resulting solutions for shippers in Europe and worldwide. Stefan Thömmes, Divisional Manager of Operations & IT at Trans-o-Flex, reported on a new service concept for complex CEP network traffic in Europe, in particular the integration of information services. Volker Böhringer, Chief Executive Officer for Region Europe at Panalpina, presented innovative concepts as an alternative for the CEP market of the future.

International CEP Transportation – Facing Market Concentration Intelligently
7. TIM CONSULT Transport Day Rhein/Neckar

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

E-Commerce knows no boundaries or borders. In the past, deliveries were made primarily within the domestic market. Today, mail-order companies are active all over Europe and even worldwide. As customer expectations reach new levels, freight costs become a serious competitive and margin factor. Supplier concentration is revolutionizing the options for courier, express and parcel services (CEP). Four express service suppliers have become three, controlling pricing and capacity.  Maximizing spend efficiency is both more challenging and crucial than ever.

How can shippers best manage? How can tenders be designed to secure highest delivery reliability at lowest cost? What is the best strategy for success?

These and many other questions will be answered at TIM CONSULT’s Transport Day in collaboration with the BVL Regional Group Rhein/Neckar. This event offers current market information about European and global CEP services, insights into procurement best practices, and compliant sharing of experience.

After years of price erosion we currently observe a strengthening of global air freight prices, making reliable rate and capacity predictions more difficult than ever.

Containers on the Trans-Siberian Railway
Land bridge container transport is new module of MII Global Ocean Transport

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

Container transport via rail from Europe to China (or reverse) has been used by a small number of early adopters for some time now but is increasingly becoming a mainstream transport solution. The intercontinental journey takes containers via the classic route of the Trans-Siberian Railway and its Manchurian extension or via the so-called “Southern Route” through Kazakhstan and the Chinese province of Sinkiang.

Ocean and air cargo shippers now have the chance to make use of an additional mode of transport which provides a compromise regarding cost and transit time between the established modes of air and ocean transportation.

In order to provide full cost and service level transparency to shippers, TIM CONSULT is now offering Land Bridge Container Transport as new module of its Market Intelligence Initiative Global Ocean Transport. Our goal is to generate a comprehensive, current picture of the market. That’s why the analysis is geared towards rate and service levels of the entire door-to-door transport chain. At the same time we provide a current overview of available and novel handling and service alternatives.

Participation in TIM CONSULT’s Land Bridge Container Transport Model is open to all interested parties.
