Carrier Performance Metrics and Management

A new suite of advisory services, built on best-in-class ocean shipment data analytics, that helps shippers/BCOs improve their supply chain outcomes.

In today’s chaotic market, circumstances, needs and expectations have come together and reset the focus for shippers/BCOs in their dealings with carriers. Primacy has shifted from the conventional mandate of securing the most competitive freight costs to ensuring strict adherence to service levels, delivery and performance.


Service performance metrics and monitoring now mandatory

Drewry’s new carrier performance advisory services are built on best-in-class shipment milestone data and analytics to make your supply chain more competitive through:

  • More reliable logistics planning
  • Optimised vendor allocation decisions
  • More robust vendor management processes

"Drewry's thorough analysis and practical recommendations enabled us to adjust our internal organisation to the 'new normal' in liner shipping. Our international supply chain has become more resilient and we have improved the accuracy of our customer promises in a context of reducing liner shipping network performance."
