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."
