Volume Breakdowns 1
Illinois Consignees with 50-500 Teus from China
Start your research of our US Customs data with a name, a location, a cargo description … and quickly assemble just the information you need to map your competitive landscape and pinpoint your business opportunities.
Product features are built to yield actionable intelligence for the sales, marketing, and strategic planning applications of freight forwarders, logistics services, transport, warehouse and distribution companies.
Importers’ total volumes in TEUs can be broken down by:
Freight forwarders can develop sales pipelines or profile existing accounts with answers to such questions as:
Know – before you make your sales call – who you are competing against, at what levels of service, in each trade lane with our VOLUME BREAKDOWNS.
Importers’ volumes across any selection of — or all — destinations can be included in a single report.
More often than not, forwarders run reports limited to activities within the territories that surround their freight stations. Our Multiple Location feature makes it easy to get the complete picture of all an importer’s activities … so you don’t lose sight of emerging opportunities within your own customer base.
For instance, a forwarder may be handling Importer A’s 150-TEU annual volume into their Chicago facility – completely unaware that Importer A also has 500 TEUs going to their Miami facility.
This happens more often than you might think – with our Multiple Location report it needn’t happen to you.
We apply our algorithm in examining each container recorded on each bill of lading to distinguish between full containers, LCLs (less than container load) and vendor consolidations.
The Automated Manifest System (AMS) doesn’t draw a distinction between full and less than full container loads. But freight forwarders know the difference.
Of small interest to shipping lines, LCL shipments can be a major source of revenues for forwarders. With custom brokerage, in/out fees for warehousing and margins on trucking, LCL business can widen the profit per file beyond the gross margin on freight rates. Our FCL-LCL Shipment Reports identify these business opportunities.
Master and House Bills can be displayed side-by-side so you can simultaneously search both for shared details – keys to tracing relationships.
This is an essential tool to monitor competitive activity.
Forwarders’ arrangements for importers’ shipments can be complex and involve multiple service providers. A forwarder might opt not to use its own service contract as an NVOCC — choosing instead a master co-loader’s service for a steamship line. Or, perhaps the forwarder’s origin agent is using its service contract. Under these circumstances, the forwarder’s SCAC won’t be on the house bill … but it will be on the master bill.
With the ability to examine both house and master bills, it’s easy to spot these multi-service arrangements – and keep track of your competitors.
