Webinar- Ocean Freight RFPs

International trading has increased enormously in recent years due to the acceleration of globalization. In recent years 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.

Preparation and execution of ocean Request for Proposal (RFP) is important part of transportation management. Many transportation managers, during the budgeting process and 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 which yield additional dividends for shippers, if taken into consideration.

This webinar covers aspects of Ocean RFPs such as surcharges included in ocean freight, ocean pricing seasonality, RFP timelines, preparation steps and execution of buddings. Clear understanding and proper evaluation of available options allow shippers to determine the right balance between competitive pricing and quality of service, as well as optimize transportation costs by leveraging purchasing power.

After the webinar, participants will:

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