Webinar-Ocean Freight RFPs

International trading has increased enormously in recent years due to the acceleration of globalization. In 2011, international trade accounted for nearly 60% of global output. Global seaborne container trade is believed to account for approximately the same 60% of all world cargo transported by water and plays important part in integrated transportation solutions. Properly evaluated, negotiated, and executed Ocean RFPs help to optimize supply chain, associated costs and risks.

Proper preparation and execution of ocean Request for Proposal (RFP) is important part of transportation management. Many transportation managers, during the budgeting process and during operational execution of ocean shipments, prefer to procure service on case-by-case basis driven by factors such as price and transit time. However there are additional aspects that will yield further dividends for shippers, if taken into consideration.

The webinar will cover aspects of Ocean RFPs such as surcharges included in ocean freight, ocean pricing seasonality, ocean RFP timelines, preparation steps and execution of biddings. Clear understanding and proper evaluation of the available options allow shippers to determine the right balance of competitive pricing and quality of service, as well as optimize transportation costs through leverage of purchasing power.

After the webinar, participants will:

  • Know the fundamentals of ocean freight
  • Recognize the importance of seasonality and other factors important for cost decisions
  • Understand the framework and preparation of an ocean RFP
  • Be able to run bidding and agree on terms
