Service changes and disruptions cause over five million sailing schedule changes each month, with significant cost impact to shippers’ supply chains in terms of airfreight charges to expedite shipments, chargebacks for missed sale dates, lost cargo value, and increased trucking, warehouse, and inventory carrying costs. Monitoring updated carriers’ schedules can also be time intensive.
