A shipper, freight forwarder, shipping line and port operator – that’s the complete container supply chain, and they were all interviewed by The Loadstar Live at the recent TOC Europe Container Supply Chain conference in Amsterdam.

David Learners, EMEA inbound transportation manager for Black & Decker, explains why the consumer electronics manufacturer is keen to reduce its use of freight forwarders; Helge Neumann-Lezious, intra-Europe trade manager for Kuehne + Nagel, claims forwarders still offer considerable value to shippers, such as the way KN helped customers circumvent congestion at the port of Gothenburg; Hamburg Süd’s global head of marine and terminal operations, Andreas Mrozek, talks about his company’s project to collaborate closer with terminals and how that could apply equally to forwarder and shippers; and the port of Liverpool’s deputy chief operating officer, David Huck, describes how ports can bring all these parties together to design new supply chain solutions.
