An empty container transportation centre has opened in Shanghai, the world’s largest container port.

The giant new facility located in the Yangshan Special Comprehensive Bonded Zone can handle 3m teu per year.

“The new centre will help us to apply digitalised and intelligent management to promote communications between ports and shipping enterprises, so as to provide empty container services for shipping operators as well as customers in Northeast Asia, along the Yangtze River Delta region, and areas along the Yangtze River,” said the chairman of Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG).

Maersk, CMA CGM, MSC and Evergreen have come onboard as partners in SIPG’s new empty container site.

The availability of empty containers has been a serious issue throughout the pandemic, with many containers becoming stuck in North America. Analysts at Sea-Intelligence are predicting there will be an increasing pile of empty containers in key destination regions coming up again shortly, and not enough vessel capacity to repatriate them.

NEOLink cooperated with our order processing system. He did not replace it or force solutions. Logfret did it better than other companies on the market – it adapted its system to ours. Logfret didn’t come to us saying, “We have this solution, and you either use it or we won’t cooperate.

We made a huge improvement in global visibility with a global platform—anyone can log into NEOLink and look at a shipment anytime, anywhere in the world. We wanted a freight forwarder with a good technology platform, which could handle the complexities of our business and we found NEOLink!

My suppliers have less or zero experience with international logistics. Thus, not able to create proper documentation which leads to tremendous delay. Thanks to Logfret who provide training to all suppliers and work with us to build up a consolidation hub to reduce transportation costs significantly.
