Damco can help our customers ensure they are using vehicle, shipping, or storage space to its best advantage. We have for 20+ years assisted customers in increasing container utilisation and reducing shipping costs.
Our load optimisation analyses are easy to use and can work with different load and vehicle/space types to increase cube yield. Load optimisation provides direct benefits in lower shipping and storage costs, but our systems with their sophisticated reporting and network support also ensure that all partners are working to, and prepared for, the same load plans, increasing efficiency and minimising damage.
Traditionally supply chain optimization has focused solely on container utilization, mode conversion and optimal routing. However, any efficient supply chain must master the logistics network as well as packaging optimization. Damco offers just that.
Packaging optimisation can reduce your total logistics costs by 10% and fulfil your sustainability objectives. We can provide customers with a suggestion on the type of material (strength, thickness) and dimensions for the cartons. By implementing packages that suit your end-to-end needs, you will not only reduce your logistics costs but also minimize the environmental impact of your supply chain.
