Lowering Your Ocean Freight Costs UAE And
Boosting Margin
  • Every freight forwarder and shipper tries to
    negotiate the best container rates when it comes
    to total shipment costs. Ocean freight costs
    UAE are a major component of total shipment
    costs. Preparation is the key to a successful
    carrier rate negotiation understanding your own
    shipping requirements, monitoring market
    conditions, and leveraging this knowledge when
    negotiating rates with carriers.
  • Understanding freight costs, reducing ocean
    freight spend, and realizing better margins are
    three significant challenges for shippers and 
    freight forwarders. Dynamics and trends in the
    market play an important role in determining
    transportation costs, your business can also use
    visibility data to forecast fluctuations and
    trends in the market.

Here Know The Few Tips For Lowering Ocean Freight
Costs UAE
  • 1. Know The Market, Your Business, and Sale Terms
  • Be aware of the market you play in and avoid
    paying vendors more than the market rate. Make
    use of freight cost benchmarking techniques, such
    as asking different forwarders for quotes so you
    can see what they are charging and then decide
    what you can afford. You can manage your
    businesss production time more effectively
    before the peak season if you know the freight
    rates and trends.
  • 2. Plan Carefully Not Everything Is Urgent
  • Ensure that you know exactly what is required.
    Know the scope of the business, the frequency of
    shipments, and the quantities that have been
    agreed upon. Take this information into
    consideration when planning your approach.
  • 3. Opt Right Mode Of Cargo
  • Is it a full container FCL, LCL, or groupage?
    Make sure you are using the right mode of
    shipping for your cargo. A LCL or groupage
    shipment involves multiple charges compared to a
    full container shipment, so determine if its
    necessary. Similarly, determine whether FCL can
    be optimized to save costs.
  • 4. Select Best Route And Packing For Your Cargo
  • Reduce your freight costs by optimizing your
    routes. In terms of cost savings, the cheapest
    quote isnt always the best. Be sure to compare
    the routes each carrier takes and choose the
    carrier that will deliver your cargo for the best

  • 5. Be prepared
  • Taking the time to plan, prepare, and implement
    your tender management process can dramatically
    impact your freight costs if your procurement is
    based on a tender. It is important to keep in
    mind that effective preparation happens both on
    land and at sea, and both can pay off in cost
  • 6. Triangulation
  • Triangulation is another option that carriers
    favor, and they may offer special deals to
    customers who can do so. When triangulation is
    used, a container is used for export and import
    purposes at the same time, meaning you export
    from A to B, and then import from B to A using
    the same container and the same carrier.
  • 7. Better Communicate With Your Carriers
  • Communication is key to any business arrangement.
    Having open, clear communication with your
    carriers can go a long way in avoiding any
    mishaps that may arise as a result of
    miscommunication, which could prove to be
    expensive later on. Be sure to keep everyone
  • 8. Audit Your Quotations And Invoices
  • Ensure you audit your quotations and invoices
    thoroughly. Ocean invoices contain more than 25
    errors, and these are costly! Carriers often fail
    to add shipping surcharges and ask for payment at
    a later stage. Cost planning and negotiation may
    be affected, and the customer may not agree to
    pay for additional charges, so youll have to
    cover them.
