Container Liner Shipping
The current pressure on container-liners from a lurking recession, low freight rates and
high energy prices challenges the cost management of all operators.
Depending on liner trade, ship size, age and their charter rates / capital cost, the best
control options are plentiful - yet controversial.
With Eco-Trips, we provide a computer application that maps key cost mechanisms into models and allows you to feed them into an optimizer. These mechanisms are common knowledge - as relationships between fuel consumption and speed, turnaround duration and unit numbers moved, reefer numbers and auxiliary power consumption - and revolve around the two key cost categories
Eco-Trips allows you to "play" with different scenarios, ships, cargo volumes, fuel prices, etc. It helps you to better understand what makes a cost-efficient production process.
The complexity in this decision-making-scenario is significant and hard to manage.
