Let’s get people excited about a career in Logistics!
Malcom McLean was a transportation entrepreneur who joined forces with Roy Fruehauf and the Fruehauf Trailer Corporation to develop the shipping container.
McLean contributed to the widespread adoption of the shipping container which revolutionized transport and international trade in the second half of the 20th century. He is often called “the father of containerization”.
In the 1950s, most cargo was loaded and unloaded manually by longshoremen. Hand-loading of a ship cost $5.86 per ton at that time. Using containers, it cost only $0.16 per ton to load a ship; a 39-fold savings.
Containerization also greatly reduced the time it took to load and unload ships. McLean knew “a ship earns money only when she’s at sea,” and based his business on that efficiency.
Don’t leave it to chance!
Know your incoterms in order to secure the best contractual terms for your company.
Incoterms rules or International Commercial Terms are a series of pre-defined commercial terms published by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) that are widely used in International commercial transactions or procurement processes. This is a series of three-letter trade terms related to common contractual sales practices. The Incoterms rules are intended to clearly communicate the tasks, costs, and risks associated with the transportation and delivery of goods.
It’s a carefully orchestrated journey from supplier to your final destination!
As the logistics manager, you are coordinating the supplier pick-up dates, the vessel cut-offs, quick turnaround at the ports.
Each of your service providers needs to know what the other is doing and when to chime in!
Every day a different piece played to perfection!
