an INTTRA company announced 10 September 2018 that CMA CGM and Hapag-Lloyd, two
of the world’s largest liner shipping companies, are offering reUse container
management services in Mexico.
reUse is a
container triangulation service for transporters made available on Avantida’s
online platform. It is the first time that this service is offered in Mexico,
and for Avantida it is their first step into the North American market.
This is how
reUse works: once an import container has been unloaded it must be taken back
to the port or assigned depot. With reUse, transport companies can request the
liner shipping company to use that same container and bring it straight to
their export customer to get loaded. This way, they avoid waiting times at
depots and terminals and eliminate unnecessary mileage, which provides the
additional benefit of reducing CO2 emissions in addition to overall costs.
a completely new concept for the container transport sector in Mexico. Using an
import container to go straight to your export customer without having to go
back to the terminal is a refreshing advancement for planners and dispatchers.
Being able to manage this on Avantida’s platform makes this new way of planning
even easier to adopt,” said Kapil Garg, head of inland operations Latin America
at CMA CGM.
“This is a
great opportunity for transporters! We are delighted to offer empty container
re-use in Mexico. The Avantida platform will bring a new dimension to their
planning strategies, optimising time on the road and reducing transportation
costs. For us, we expect a similar structure and efficiency it already provides
n Europe,” said Niklas Ohling, senior director of container steering at
successfully rolling out our platform across Europe, we are absolutely thrilled
to be able to help container transport companies in Mexico become more
effective,” said Luc De Clerck, Avantida’s CEO. “The Avantida platform will
provide fantastic new opportunities to the Mexican transport community to save
both money and time every single day.”
past year Avantida has both expanded in existing markets and entered new ones,
including Germany, France, Poland, Lithuania and now Mexico. The platform is
now available in 12 countries, with almost 4,000 registered companies and an
average of 1,600 transactions a day.
