Cost Optimization for Sea Freight and International Shipping

Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA) are delighted to announce the launch of our Sea Freight Solutions. This is a global competence group formed as an integral part of ERA’s Supply Chain Management expertise area.

The main services will be focused on offering customers assistance with the negotiation and follow up of sea freight contracts. This is a market with a very complex pricing mechanism with no clear link between volume and price. In addition, there is an abundance of various surcharges making the final invoice very complex to penetrate.

The market is dominated by roughly ten international container shipping companies leading the race in terms of scale of operation. In addition, there are an endless number of Non-Vessel Owned Operators.

With more than 200 years of combined experience from the container sea freight industry, we are well equipped to support clients to manoeuvre this opaque market, avoid common pitfalls and mitigate risks which can increase costs as well as organisational frustration.

Group leader Hans-Henrik Hansen says, “We are delighted to kick off this service and we are really looking forward to serving our clients with a high calibre offering. We are scaling our objectives to become a leading global competence house within Sea Freight/Sea container logistics”.
