The logistics community has been discussing the shortage of professional drivers for quite a long time. The recent statistics figures show that the current situation is not just a temporary difficulty but a developing negative trend.
Evgeny Deshchenej, Head of the Department of multimodal transportations of TELS Group of Companies, shares his view on the container shipping market and rate trends expected in the new year.
A lot of cases have been published on the web-site of TELS Group of Companies in the last year. The cases bring into focus the results of our employees’ work involving preparation and optimization of logistics schemes for clients. I can take the liberty to say that a creative approach in the work of logistics managers is one of the key competencies today allowing to cope with the assigned tasks successfully.
TELS Group of Companies provides comprehensive services for international freight transportation by all modes. Experts have been sharing their experience in transport logistics for 16 years following up important events and giving their comments, analyzing the TLS market, making forecasts of its development.
Against the rapid post-crisis growth of the freight transportation market in 2017, forwarding companies are facing the shortage of international transport, which resulted from the reduction in the truck fleet during the years of crisis. An obvious lack of transportation capacity is especially noticeable when arranging deliveries from distant regions of Europe to the countries of the EEU.
In November 2017, TELS Group of companies participated as an exhibitor at TransPoland exhibition in Warsaw. This year the exhibition gathered 190 exhibitors and more than 6000 participants from 34 countries. TELS Group of companies shares the “outward” view on a number of features of the current state and development trends of the European transport and logistics services market (TLS).
Case. Scheme of Uninterrupted Delivery of Edible Fats against Short-Term Production Requirements Planning
In order to minimize the costs of raw materials storage, our Customers often come with the idea of connecting production and logistics in a way to provide the delivery of raw materials in the required volumes meeting the deadlines. The service is quite common in TELS market, but things becomes more complicated when raw materials require certain conditions of transportation and the delivery is performed against short-term production requirements planning.
Case. Delivering Pharmaceutical Products from France to Russia Quickly with No Direct Transport Available
Transportation of pharmaceutical products often requires strict compliance with temperature conditions. It is usually quite easy to find the available refrigerated transport when arranging the delivery of such cargoes to the EEU countries from the near regions of Europe. However, when it comes to delivering from the distant regions of the European Union, it is always a problem to find refrigerators, especially in market growth conditions.
Case. Optimization of the Scheme for Veterinary Cargo Delivery from France to Russia with Limitations in Supplier’s Veterinary Service
TELS group of companies provides international shipping of cargoes for its customers, including those that require veterinary certificates to cross EEU border successfully. What can be done when supplier’s veterinary service issues certificates only on Thursday and Friday and the supplier requests to perform loading proportionally during the week? In this case, the car loaded on Monday or Tuesday has to stand idle for 3-4 days.
TELS group of companies participates in the exhibition TransPoland 2017 in Warsaw on November 8-10.
In January-June, 2017, the volume of road transportation in/from Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan increased over the same period in the previous year. The volume of imports to Russia also increased, while the exports revealed a negative trend, which happened due to the reduction in the exports of commodities.
