It has made life a lot more pleasant for our customers as they’re being able to get instant confirmation as to whether the containers can be re-used.
I recall when you first came in, my business partner and I quickly saw the merits of it. We were a little annoyed that we hadn’t thought of the idea ourselves.
MatchBox Exchange frees up limited resources by allowing us to re-use containers that were previously not allowed to be re-used. This facilitates the business’s resource allocation towards expansion. Operations wise, double jobs are eliminated in the sense that we do not have to return containers that can now be re-used. In the same sense, we also have lesser collection due to the re-use now allowed. The team at MatchBox is great, they assist with problem solving efficiently. They are helpful and easy to communicate with. That helps to smooth out any bumps and problems faced especially in the earlier stages. Matchbox has definitely helped ease the burden of our daily operations, and we will definitely recommend it to others.
The MatchBox initiative is another disruptive technological advance in the shipping logistics chain that uses information technology to reduce real world transportation costs. I believe MatchBox has the potential to be a very useful addition to the Sea Freight Logistics chain.
MatchBox is a program that has saved our company a lot of time and money. Along with this, the program’s clean interface makes it incredibly easy to use and allows us to exchange boxes without having to contact the shipping line.
Great efficiency, time and money saver for the everyday container transporter in a competitive market. Can’t do without it now!
The benefits are there for us and the industry, getting those extra truck movements out in the wharf area. Making sure that we are doing less of everything. It has been a huge value to the business.
