The Challenge

  • On average, the entire thyssenkrupp entity ships about 50,000 TEUs annually from all around the world.
  • Main shipping lanes are Europe to and from China, Latin America and NAFTA countries (US, Canada and Mexico).
  • To ensure thyssenkrupp Presta Steering was receiving the best possible rates, it needed a tool for benchmark purposes.
  • The company had been using a 3PL but the decision was made for a more neutral, transparent solution

  • Too much time spent on RFQs (Request For Quotations) and calculations

Solution | Outcome

  • A 3% decrease in costs based on thyssenkrupp’s target setting
