Updated: 25/09/2023

Delhi, India – Business Wire India 

•  CIMC achieved three-fold growth in container volume and global partner network establishment via Container xChange

•  Container xChange's real-time insights enhanced CIMC’s operational efficiency and empowered informed decision-making

CIMC Gold Wide Technology Logistics, a leading Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) headquartered in Shenzhen, China, has strategically adopted Container xChange to optimize its operations. This strategic alliance has led to a substantial three-fold growth in the container volume of CIMC, the establishment of a robust global partner network, and significant business expansion within a year.

The container industry, marked by its inherent challenges, has been witnessing fluctuating demands, disrupted supply chains, and operational challenges. Against the backdrop of the container market's complexities, CIMC Gold's achievements resonate.

In the NVOCC landscape, conventional practices have often limited partnership diversification and hindered access to real-time insights. These challenges result in operational inefficiencies and impede strategic agility, affecting NVOCCs' expansion potential.

Amidst the early 2022 pandemic, a surge in container demand prompted CIMC Gold Wide Technology Logistics to actively seek increased partnerships both locally and globally. The aim was to meet the mounting requirements for container leasing. However, during this period, the company encountered resource limitations, resulting in a meager pool of domestic partners primarily derived from WeChat connections.

This issue presented a substantial barrier to broadening their client base. Furthermore, their operational framework heavily relied on conventional means such as phone calls and emails, which curtailed their access to real-time market insights and updates.

Nevertheless, the company's trajectory took a positive turn after it became a part of Container xChange's network in the preceding year and sped up its digital transformation using Container xChange. This made their operations smoother, boosted productivity, and cut costs by streamlining processes.

Container xChange's integration provides a solution that tackles these issues, effectively reshaping how NVOCCs operate. This strategic collaboration entails the following ways:

1.  Insightful Decision-Making: Container xChange's real-time market insights empowered CIMC Gold to make informed decisions, bolstering competitiveness amidst dynamic container market trends.

2.  Global Network Expansion: The real-time chat interface of Container xChange breaks down geographical barriers, enabling CIMC Gold to engage with a wider spectrum of global container owners.

3.  Operational Optimization: Container xChange's support system fosters streamlined operations, catalyzing collaboration and minimizing operational friction.

Cheng Dezhang, Overseas Business Manager at CIMC Gold, highlights the strategic significance of this partnership, stating, "Container xChange has redefined our operational approach. Leveraging real-time data and expanding our partner network, we've adeptly navigated market shifts."

Christian Roeloffs, CEO and Co-founder of Container xChange, comments on the broader shipping industry, "In a container industry influenced by macro-economic challenges and geopolitical dynamics, the elimination of empty container repositioning costs enhances companies' competitive edge."

Container xChange offers a sophisticated online platform for secure container trading and leasing, incorporating essential services such as secure payment handling, container management, partner vetting, and insurance. All these services are seamlessly accessible through a single platform, facilitating streamlined and cost-effective logistics solutions.

Founded in 2010 as part of the CIMC Group, CIMC Gold Wide Technology Logistics has consistently asserted its presence in the logistics sector. Anchored in Shenzhen, the company's operational reach extends across domestic and international corridors. Driven by technology-centric solutions, CIMC Gold provides streamlined logistics services to its clients, intricately managing container transportation.

About Container xChange

The container is one of the most impactful innovations in history—using standardization to power globalization and lift billions of people out of poverty. But contrary to the standardized container itself, most processes in container logistics have not been standardized nor innovated — and are still frustratingly complex, manual and error-prone. Combined with thin margins, this makes it difficult for logistics businesses to survive and thrive.

Container xChange is the leading online platform for container logistics that brings together all relevant companies to book and manage shipping containers as well as to settle all related invoices and payments.

The neutral online platform... 

1.  connects supply and demand of shipping containers and transportation services with full transparency on availability, pricing and reputation, 

2.  simplifies operations from pickup to drop-off of containers,

3.  and auto-settles payments in real-time for all your transactions to reduce invoice reconciliation efforts and payment costs.

Currently, more than 1500+ vetted container logistics companies trust xChange with their business—and enjoy transparency through performance ratings and partner reviews. Unlike limited personal networks, excel sheets and emails you rely on, Container xChange gives its users countless options to book and manage containers, move faster with confidence and increase profit margins.
