Ocean Freight

Panalpina Ocean Freight

Panalpina is the world’s fourth largest provider of ocean freight services. The company’s relationship with customers is moving away from purely transactional business to value-added propositions.

 

Structure

The company is present in all major cities and ports and has a strong presence in Asia Pacific, which remains the largest ocean freight market globally. 

 

Carriers

Panalpina enjoys partnerships with the majority of the world’s biggest ocean carriers, contracting space allocations on a variety of their routes to manage capacity in line with the demand from its customer base. For Panalpina, a global network, service reliability, IT integration and financial stability are the major qualities it looks for when securing agreements with long-term partners.

 

IT infrastructure

A major contributor to Panalpina’s industry-leading position is its custom-built IT infrastructure. This connects seamlessly to both its customers’ systems and those of its shipping partners, allowing instantaneous order booking and real-time status updates along the supply chain.
