The transport sector have noticed the benefits of container triangulation and MatchBox Exchange has seen more customers adopting the solution into their operation.
“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.”
“For somebody that’s not technically knowledgeable, I find it very user friendly.”Kelli Prentice
“It’s allowed us to look at opportunities to use our fleet better and smarter.”Shaun Johnson
“With MatchBox, instead of having a truck in a queue to dehire a container, that is one extra truck we can have at the door step of one of our customers.”Nathan Craner

The data integration that MatchBox Exchange has established with shipping lines allows MatchBox Exchange to identify containers that fit within the validation rules set for containers that can be triangulated (Re-Used or Exchanged).
Once a user requests a Re-Use or Exchange, the MatchBox Exchange system identifies whether the request is permissible against these rules and provides an instant response to the user. On approval of a request, MatchBox Exchange sends an EDI update to the shipping line to terminate the contract of the import container and transfer the hire of the container onto the nominated export booking. The EDI update occurs on approval of the Re-Use/Exchange through the system.
In the case of a Re-Use the responsibility lies with the party making the request.
In the case of an Exchange both parties are responsible for the inspection of the container. Before offer is
made, offeror (party with import empty) needs to inspect the container. The party sourcing the container
must also inspect the container on receipt to confirm they are happy with the condition of the container.
In the case of a Re-Use, the detention clock stops as soon as the container is approved on MatchBox Exchange’s platform for export booking.
