Empty Container Management:

How do we enhance the opportunities for transport operators to conduct empty container bulk runs into and out of Empty Container Parks, particularly after hours?

Notification of empty evacuation bulk runs to stevedores in the Containerchain system is becoming more prevalent – so, there’s more visibility about the capacity of the ECPs to handle other movements.

But, how can we get that message out in a more timely manner, and also, how could transport operators communicate more proactively when they have a bulk run need that could initiate a commercial arrangement for longer ECP operating hours?

CTAA will be providing the resources to continue the Melbourne Empty Container Park Working Group discussions in close cooperation with transport operators, ECPs and Containerchain to find practical solutions to this and other MT container management issues.
