We believe that the undiscovered country in maritime cost management is
hidden between engineering hardware solutions and
traditional cost-cutting approaches - it's name is
load-line forges key competences in engineering, logistics, modelling and numerical mathematics into cost models for maritime transports.
As a first approach, think of a transport - bulk or container - between two ports. The two antagonistic cost drivers when optimizing are
Our mission at load-line is to deliver these solutions to the maritime industry. We believe that - regardless of economic ups and downs - cost management effectiveness will be a long-term key-success factor for the maritime industry. And that transport process optimization will be part of it.
There are many applications to Eco-Hauls - our tool for bulk transport and Eco-Trips - our tool for container liner services - ranging from new building design optimization to contract negotiation, from capacity management and feasibility studies to novel hub- and spoke-concepts.
