An importer of plywood was shipping in ocean containers at a max payload of 44,000 pounds. I.C.E. Transport recommended increasing the payload to over 55,000 pounds and arranging heavy-load carriers to ship from the port to consignees. While the OTR costs rose, the overall freight costs dropped. The customer is now saving $40.95 on every metric ton shipped because of more efficient ocean shipping. Based on annual tonnage moved, the strategy will result in a $93,000 yearly savings.
