NVOCCs transport more US import containers than ever


More than one third of all imports to the United States were contracted by non-vessel operating common carriers (NVOCCs) in the first quarter, according to Shipping Gazette.
According to research firm Datamyne, 37.5 per cent of US imports are carried by NVOCCs, representing "a bump up from 2014's share of 36.0 per cent and a 10 percentage point gain over 10 years," reported American Shipper.
The dependence on NVOCCs varies among the top 20 carriers, according to Datamyne. In the first quarter, it ranged from 79 per cent for United Arab Shipping Co (UASC) to just four per cent for Seaboard Marine.
The researchers found that up to a half of the largest shipping line's containerised cargo is contracted by NVOCCs, as is the case with "K" Line, which transports 55.2 per cent of imports into the US using NVOCCs, followed by Cosco at 54.7 per cent, MSC with 40.1 per cent, APL with 39.2 per cent, and CMA CGM moves 38.8 per cent of such cargo in this manner.
Datamyne believes part of the reason for the change is that shippers are increasingly outsourcing logistics to NVOCCs, rather than performing work in house. It also said that the trend towards outsourcing is driving mergers and acquisitions in the 3PL space.
