The transport market is experiencing turbulent times. Global economic uncertainties, such as Brexit or the levying of protective tariffs, but also regional industry specifics, such as different legal regulations or toll amounts within Europe and, finally, the continuing shortage of truck drivers have a direct influence on transport prices and capacities.

Companies are faced with the challenge of achieving optimum conditions for their transport orders. But how do you find the best service provider for your transport order in times of price volatility?

Martin Beyrer, Director Business Development Europe, Ticontract and Christian Dolderer, Manager Market Intelligence Initiative Road & Rail, Tim Consult answer these and other questions in their webinar.

Answers to the following questions await you:

  • Timing: When should you tender?
  • Sourcing: Where are the best service providers?
  • Adapting: In what ways should your strategy flex?

The Future of the EU Consortia Block Exemption Regulation – Pros, Cons & Market Impacts
TIM CONSULT Market Intelligence

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

In April 2020 the European Commission will decide if the Block Exemption Regulation (BER) will be repealed or extended for another five years. The BER regulates the cooperation agreements in the liner shipping sector from and to Europe.

Alliances that restrict competition are generally banned by EU law. Under certain conditions the BER allows cooperation agreements of shipping lines aiming at providing joint cargo transport services. Their combined market share should not exceed 30%. The alliance should still have sufficient competition and should not be used to fix prices or share the market. Finally the alliance should have the aim to realize improvements in productivity and service quality.

If these preconditions are fulfilled, the alliances are exempted from the prohibition of anticompetitive agreements as laid down in Article 101(1) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).

At present the European Commission is working on an assessment of the BER’s future relevance and market participants are lively discussing the pros and cons. Until April next year it has to be decided whether the BER should expire or should be prolonged and under which conditions.

As it is our aim to provide our customers with current market knowledge our experts from the Market Intelligence Initiative Global Ocean Transport have prepared a short evaluation of the current BER situation. We present a summary of their findings in our May newsletter.

The Challenges for Ocean Transport in 2019+ Sulfur, Economics and Technology
Update Conference of the MII Global Ocean Transport

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

On April 10, 2019 TIM CONSULT had invited to its Update Conference of the Market Intelligence Initiative Global Ocean Transport to Frankfurt Airport.

Since 2002, we have been analyzing market developments and freight rates for worldwide ocean transport as well as associated pre-carriage and onward carriage in the hinterland for a community of large shippers.

Once a year the Community of freight procurement and supply chain experts meets at this shippers only event to discuss current analysis results, market trends, challenges ahead and best practices. Our participants appreciate the information as perfect preparation for coming freight rate negotiations.

Our Highlights at this year’s Update Conference:

  • Global ocean container transport – outlook 2019/20 and driving factors
  • Low Sulfur Cap 2020 – facts & correlations
  • Procurement professional’s experience: challenges and expectations
  • On the way to the “new normal”: panel discussion
  • Market Intelligence Initiative: relaunches, events and activities

This “Shippers only Event” attracted numerous renowned shippers in 2019, so that our number of participants was 30% higher than in the previous year. For us this is proof that our Update Conferences provide valuable input about the international container freight market.

The more than 100 participants showed great interest in our experts‘ top-notch analysis on current market developments and the underlying driving factors. In addition the valuable insights on performant procurement strategies and best practices were highly appreciated.  A highlight for all participants was certainly the exchange of experiences between the MII Community members and the “MII-Newbies” from different industries.

Thanks to the positive reactions of all participants, we are very optimistic and assume that we were able to win one or two new Community members at this year’s Update Conference.

Container transport: pre-carriage and on-carriage on the test bench
The ocean freight experts of MII Global Ocean Transport carry out inland analysis

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

For efficient sea freight transport, the pre-carriages and on-carriages in the countries of loading and arrival are also decisive for success. Influencing factors such as the political situation in the respective countries, legal regulations, road and rail infrastructures, capacity bottlenecks and price competition make life difficult for container freight shippers. For this reason, the sea freight experts of TIM CONSULT carry out regular domestic analyses.

Since the end of February the results of the last inland analysis of the Market Intelligence Initiative Global Ocean Transport are available. An overview of the analyzed markets can be found here.

Prior to this, our sea freight experts had examined the global market for container pre-carriages and on-carriages in detail. Their analysis revealed above all the challenges on the domestic transport markets described below:

The Brazilian transportation market is severely affected by strikes and infrastructure bottlenecks. Prices per kilometer are also significantly higher than in other emerging markets such as South Africa and Mexico.

The obvious price competition between road and rail for transcontinental transports in the USA also confronts global shippers with difficult decisions. Extremely high prices and capacity bottlenecks are proving to be problematic for short-haul shipments in the USA.

For European shippers, the loss of efficiency due to low water in 2018 and the resulting switch from barge to more expensive modes of transport play a decisive role.

According to Clemens Schapeler, Initiative Manager Global Ocean Transport, delays in sea transport are increasing as shipping companies consolidate. In this situation, pre-carriage and on-carriage as well as booking processes become decisive levers for the optimization of global supply chains.

There is no doubt that the global transport market is experiencing turbulent times. Low capacities and rising transport prices are colliding with an increased demand for international transports. Many shippers wonder whether it makes sense to put transport services out to tender in this situation. What is your strategy?

Martin Beyrer, Director Business Development at Ticontract – the leading online platform for freight tendering and e-sourcing – spoke with Christian Dolderer, Initiative Manager Market Intelligence Initiative (MII) Road & Rail, about this topic.

Find out in the interview:

  • how important in-depth market knowledge is in times of strongly fluctuating and incalculable capacities
  • why an intelligent tendering process can help in turbulent times
  • how to decide for the right timing to run tenders

Newest developments of the Eurasian Land Bridge
Update Report covering the Chinese One Belt - One Road Initiative

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

Traffic on the Eurasian Land Bridge is growing, continuously expanding the end-to-end supply chain service scope and delivery options between Far East, Central Asia, and Europe. Shippers are profiting from this developing alternative to air and ocean transport.

The rapid growth has been carefully monitored within our Market Intelligence Initiative Global Ocean Transport since Autumn 2017 and a new update has now been published. We comprehensively examine the entire Chinese One Belt – One Road initiative from several perspectives. This vast, long-term project bundles significant Chinese infrastructure investment and trade agreements but specifically accelerates freight transport connectivity. The Eurasian Land Bridge Container Rail Project is the most well-known part of this One Belt – One Road initiative, now encompassing multiple East-West routes.

Additionally, we provide an overview of available new railway routings, developments with regard to capacities and transit times, and a discussion of the current Eurasian Land Bridge competitive market.

If you are interested in the Eurasian Land Bridge Report, please contact Clemens Schapeler. He will be pleased to inform you.

Chasing Change: Are We Building Sustainable Strategies
F & L November Meeting 2018 in Madrid

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

 

 

On November 15-16, 2018, F&L, the European Freight and Logistics Leaders Forum, welcomed an international audience of speakers and participants to its November Meeting in Madrid. F&L is a non-lobby, non-profit organization uniting leaders from leading industrial and retail companies (shippers) and from different categories of logistic service providers from all countries of Europe in networking and exchange on future issues of European logistics.

Spain was the strategic location of choice for F&L’s event: fourth largest economy in the Euro zone, a thriving industrial sector, and critical function as ‘garden of Europe’. Pressure from stakeholders along the supply chain continues to drive innovation and ‘disruption’ across all sectors, capacity/service issues remain challenging, environment/society/politics present new problems and management needs tools and more information to plan for success in an uncertain global trading environment. Understanding, dialogue and positioning are critical as companies along the end-to-end supply chain find extra challenge in planning the next 3/5 years and beyond…

Interesting topics were discussed and examined in several sessions during the two days in Madrid:

Session 1: Industry insight: Retail and FMCG
Session 2: Visibility and tools for management control
Session 3: Responding to transport market pressures in European land and global ocean transport

For Session 3, F & L invited our Managing Director, Björn Klippel, to co-moderate the ocean ransport panel together with Berit Hägerstrad-Avall, Director STORA ENSO. The panel comprised Nicole Dubrow, Strategic Operations Manager, Pan Europe MARS; Mar Chao López, Head of Commercial, PORT OF VALENCIA and Andrew Huxley, Regional Development Director, TT CLUB. Together with 30 attendants the experts discussed the current situation on the ocean transport market and challenges from end-to-end supply chain perspective.

After two days of intensive expert exchanges and discussions the international participants could take home valuable new findings and insights.

If you are interested in efficient answers to the current European transport market challenges, feel free to contact us. We will be pleased to give you advice. Likewise please contact us if you are interested in joining F&L, the unique cross-sector network of over 100 logistics managers in Europe.

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.

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.

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

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. Fuel costs, security issues and an unclear political environment remain high-impact factors critical to successful tendering.  Booming Asian demand and ocean freight carrier consolidation are stressing capacity and pressuring rates.

TIM CONSULT’s air cargo experts invite you to participate in the annual Update Conference of our Market Intelligence Initiative (MII) Global Air Cargo:

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.
