Inland transportation is of growing importance to global supply chains. Drewry can help clients establish the competitiveness of different transport modes and hinterland systems, and optimise cargo routings, vendor set-ups or asset utilisation based on criteria such as cost, service or environmental factors.
We provide inter-range, inter-port and inter-modal competition studies to current and prospective stakeholders (port authorities, investors, asset operators, exporters/importers) who are interested in establishing the competitiveness of a sea port or an inland port as part of an integrated transport system.
We provide procurement support to intermediate users (shipping companies or 3PLs) and end users (exporters/importers) of inland transportation, helping them to reduce overall cost by optimising cargo routings and vendor strategies and implement asset utilisation improvement strategies.
As a trusted, ’neutral party’ in the industry, we can act as facilitators to enable horizontal and vertical cooperation and sharing of information to set up bundled supply chain solutions with the required critical mass.
