CASE STUDY:
NYSHEX, A NEW WAY FORWARD FOR CONTRACTING

Location: TBD

Container shipping has been correctly described as an industry that destroys value rather than creating it. The volatile market in which carriers have little to no control over pricing means they have limited ability to create value for customers through enhanced levels of service. When a quarter of booked containers fail to show up for loading with no consequences to the shipper, there is something dreadfully wrong with the way the industry functions. The same can be said for cargo that does show up on time, yet is rolled to a later sailing. Is there a different way? How does an industry expect to change after it has been stuck in its ways for so many years? A promising new initiative called the New York Shipping Exchange, or NYSHEX, is building support around a new slot exchange concept that has gained the support of carriers, beneficial cargo owners, and forwarders in an attempt to address these core issues of dysfunctionality. Participants will discuss the exchange and how it is seeking to chart a new direction for the industry.

CASE STUDY:
CUTTING THE FAT FROM THE BOOKING AND DOCUMENTATION PROCESS

Location: TBD

Shippers increasingly are attempting to cut costs by reducing the often-bloated time and expense associated with booking and documentation. When achieved, these become permanent savings, unlike freight rate reductions that can be wiped out if rates increase.One high-profile logistics startup focusing squarely on addressing this problem is Haven, based in Singapore and San Francisco. Haven says it can reduce the average time to process a bill of lading by 90 percent — which in one example meant 5 hours and 40 minutes — by eliminating emails and collapsing all tasks into a collaborative working environment around individual B/Ls. Under the Haven platform, as many as 300 emails around a single B/L can be slashed to zero. This Case Study will examine the time and costs beneficial cargo owners can save in this labor-intensive and painstaking administrative process.

The editorial team determines session topics and extends all speaker invitations based entirely on the goal of providing highly relevant content for conference attendees. Certain sponsors may give welcoming remarks or introduce certain sessions, but if a sponsor appears as a bona-fide speaker it will be because of an editorial invitation, not as a benefit of sponsorship. Sponsorship benefits do not include speaking on a program.
