Network Design and Optimisation

Our advisory capabilities in this highly specialised area include transport network strategy, design and optimisation to maximise cost efficiency, productivity and exploit market opportunities. Through supply chain mapping, analysis and modelling we help pinpoint where efficiencies can be built into existing processes. 

We can help you assess and validate the optimal international shipping routes (both at sea and inland), the optimal transport mode (bulk, containerised, multipurpose) and optimal ports of loading and discharge to meet your supply chain objectives.

We are experienced in finding and assessing alternative international backup routes to reduce supply chain risk. We are also experienced in assessing and recommending transhipment possibilities for larger bulk vessels whose cargoes are containerised at a port hub for final shipment to smaller ports.

Customers use Drewry because we have industry experience, a track record of practical recommendations and unrivalled access to real comparative logistics costs and actual freight rates for all realistic routes and network options.
