Optimization - Control - Visibility case

Today's ocean market is extremely dynamic and introduces several challenges to both shippers and importers. Shippers want to manage the outbound flow of their goods and importers want stability and reliability for planning and executing the movement of their freight from origin through final delivery. Both parties want predictability and discipline throughout each node of the supply chain.

Expeditors offers the option of combining three stand-alone ocean services into one seamlessly integrated end-to-end solution. Total Container Management is a unique, managed service enabled by technology, providing unparalleled visibility throughout the shipment journey. Backed by industry experts who understand the nuances of international container movement, Total Container Management is service provider neutral and available to all.





Three Integrated Solutionscase

Carrier Allocation, Order Management, and Delivery Management are unique solutions that address specific challenges in a customer's supply chain network. Each service can stand alone, or seamlessly integrate to improve the process of planning, booking, and delivery. With Total Container Management, achieve unparalleled visibility throughout the entire journey.


End-to-End Visibility Platforms


The standard process of forecasting to ocean carriers is a highly manual, time-consuming process that can be disrupted by a number of factors such as port congestion, delays, severe weather, customs regulations, or unexpected events.

Carrier Allocation was developed with the largest shipper in the world. Now the platform is available to any shipper who would like to bring efficiency to their ocean management.


Traditional logistics is inherently reactive. Having the ability to adapt to unforeseen changes in your order process will help you avoid delays before they happen.

Order Management applies technology and the expertise of our network to optimize your supply chain and successfully adapt as needed. If you know what’s happening across your supply chain, you can solve issues before they cause a disruption.


Delivery Management utilizes a centralized team, which manages a common platform of end-to-end delivery-related data according to measurable business rules.

This team draws upon Expeditors’ core expertise of managing customer orders, carriers, and third-party service providers.


How These Services Work Togethercase

Carrier Allocation ensures goods are arriving where they need to be, when they need to be. Order Management manages shippers' vendors and bookings at origins. Shippers have planned optimally; origins then book as planned ensuring goods will arrive when they need to be there. Delivery Management leverages the optimal planning and shipment information to proactively plan and schedule drayage upstream of vessel arrival to ensure efficient and timely final delivery. Connecting the plan-book-deliver activities provides visibility from origin to destination to proactively manage exceptions and identify trends.
