Carrier Network Optimization
LinerGrid allows a carrier to upload their full global network, or selected trade lanes thereof, into the cloud based tool for optimization calculations.
The carrier’s cargoflow at a granular level is matched against the baseline network, whereupon the network is modified to reduce the overall costs for handling the carrier’s demand flows.
The output from the optimization calculation can be used by trade management to perform fact-based decisions pertaining to trade-offs between e.g. network cost efficiency, product differentiation in terms of direct versus transhipment services, transit time differentiation and various vessel utilization measurements.
The optimization tool and the process framework supporting it can be put in place quickly and does not require the carrier to implement a new IT system
