Samenvatting

For the Export orders (Sea-containers) from Europe, Dow calculates the Lead time to the different destinations around the world.
Often, when booking a vessel, Dow finds out that they are not going to make the initial calculated transit time, and have to confirm to the customer that it will be later. This calculation has not been structurally updated for years.
Commissioned by ITO, Romy de Grip offers recommendations for improvements and a structural plan on how to calculate and maintain the transit times for Export orders (Sea-containers) from Europe to the different destinations around the world.
To achieve the recommendations that are made, information is gathered out of three sources; 630t (transit time table in SAP), Eta Ata (file out of Business object) and booking plan (carrier agreements).
With the gathered information and the knowledge and experience of supply chain employers, the follow recommendations are made.
• To get a realistic transit time historical (Eta Ata) and provided (booking plan) data should be gathered to make a good assumption.
• The supplying plants will classify on country level because of the low differences in transit time from delivery plant to the port.
• Regions
Countries, with ports that received more than 200 containers last year, are qualified for regions. The remaining countries receive an overall average. The regions that are recommended consist out the several assumptions that were made. Only the countries that supply the exporting country will get a region for the destination.
• Update and control
Every year, after the tenders with the carriers have been handled, an update of the 630t table is requested. When a new lane arises, the import/ export coordinators must be notified to implement them in the table. To avoid congestion of the table, a screening of the shipping lanes from the last 3 years is assumed. The screening can take place at the same time the transit times are updated.
• Communication/ responsible parties
The communication between the various parties should be clear and consistent. The department import/ export coordinators are responsible for maintaining the table. They should communicate with the different parties about changes and recommendations in de transit times.
With the recommendations that are provided, control and maintenance of the table will lead to a decrease of issues. It will also provide better lead times, which results an increase of the performance to the customer. Monitoring and controlling of the carriers performance will create more transparency.
