Vehicle Shipping Contracting Advisory

Asia to Middle East

The vehicle shipping sector is in transition. Changes in vehicle production, trade, technology and ownership are posing challenges to shipping lines, shippers and investors. Frontier has first-hand industry experience in this niche sector and has partnered with leading maritime advisory firm Drewry Shipping Consultants to advise key players in the sector. Together they provide intelligence and developed a shipping cost modelling tool, providing OEMs and shippers a stronger contract negotiating position.

Our consultants provided advisory services for a major regional importer of vehicles. Using our proprietary Vehicle Shipping Model, our consultants estimated the underlying costs for the main shipping operators on the routes considered. Sensitivity analysis was applied, taking into consideration voyage details and fleet composition, to assist our client with their rate negotiations.
