Green Bay, WI - 14 December 2016 - MatchBack Systems, Inc. (www.matchbacksystems.com), the leading software solution to automate, plan and optimize matchbacks, was referenced in a study published in November 2016 by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG). "Bringing the Sharing Economy to Shipping," provides insights into the costs to reposition containers and the imbalance that currently exists in the marketplace. The study notes that expenses associated with transporting empty boxes to locations where they can be loaded with cargo represent 5% to 8% of a typical carrier's total operating costs and amount to $15 billion to $20 billion each year for the industry.
Todd Ericksrud, President & CEO of MatchBack Systems, said it's possible to eliminate waste in the empty container marketplace today using technology. "MatchBack Systems is proud to be recognized as one of the companies reshaping the shipping industry with our street-turn (or matchback) platform. To restructure an industry, there needs to be a standard, and we've created one for matchbacks. Daily, we calculate over one million potential matchbacks and use our big data analytics to identify which ones are critical to automate for each customer. A matchback occurs when an inland container is paired with its next pick-up without going back to the port. Each matchback delivers between $150 and $400 for our customers."
"Traditionally, matchbacks have been difficult to execute. With our technology, matchbacks are a key strategy for customers to reduce cost and eliminate waste in their supply chain," continued Ericksrud. "Our mission is to utilize technology to create a paradigm shift in container repositioning and we have customers who eliminate up to 80,000 miles per month via matchbacks." MatchBack Systems currently works with companies like Kuehne & Nagel, Container Port Group and MOL to reduce costs associated with empty container repositioning and to eliminate emissions.
