Aug 22 2017

Innovative approach to gain efficiencies through fewer empty container moves adds significant value for ZIM’s customers 

 
Green Bay, WI and Rotterdam, NETH – 21 August 2017 MatchBack Systems, Inc. (www.matchbacksystems.com), the leading software as a service (SaaS) solution to plan, optimize and automate matchbacks, announced that ZIM Integrated Shipping Ltd. joined the company’s customer base on May 1, 2017 to optimize their inland operation in Italy. The account will be serviced through the European office in Rotterdam and corporate headquarters in North America. The system will be deployed for a 2 months pilot after which the parties will evaluate the scope for a broader cooperation.
 
Gil Lehmann, Head of Global Land Transportation for ZIM selected MatchBack Systems for their inland container movements because of its global approach to automating container optimization and the mutual focus on sustainability. “We like the company’s inventive technological approach to gain matchback savings through fewer empty container moves,” said Lehmann. “At ZIM, we endorse innovation and new technological platforms, which we see as vital tools to promote our strategic values – efficiency and profitability leading to improved customer service.”
 
A matchback occurs when you reuse containers, pairing an import transport move with an export transport move inland, resulting in significant savings in time, costs and emissions.
 
“ZIM understands and recognizes the compelling business case to automate matchbacks and has embraced the MatchBack Systems’ approach,” said Todd Ericksrud, president & CEO, MatchBack Systems. “We work closely with ZIM to unlock savings through strategic matchbacks in Europe. ZIM supports MatchBack Systems use of big data to analyze, predict, optimize and ultimately automate the daily workflows to execute the optimal matchbacks. Along with lowering costs and improving equipment utilization, there’s enormous positive environmental impact when matchbacks are executed, as the eliminated movements reduce harmful emissions.”
