The Omnibox Opportunity

Container flows between the world's major trading areas are heavily imbalanced - for example, for every loaded container that is exported from the United States to Asia, three come in. The equipment that is not required for US exports either has to be repositioned empty back to Asia or disposed of inside the US. Any unit left idle incurs daily storage charges, carrying costs and necessitates the provision of a replacement in Asia. This equipment imbalance costs shipping lines billions of dollars each year. As the volume of global containerized cargo continues to grow at an annual rate in excess of 10%, the imbalances in containerized trade will become more acute and present ever-increasing problems for container fleet managers at the world's top shipping companies.

Omnibox provides a service to it's clients that converts experience, creativity, and a huge network of global contacts into logistics solutions that successfully attack imbalances, improve asset utilization, and produce significant cost savings for its shipping line clientele. Omnibox will deliver containers to buyers in the USA, Canada, Europe, and Australia in volumes and with specifications that match the needs of their retail businesses.
