Fuel cost optimization

What do we do?

We help shippers optimize ocean freight spend by cutting marine fuel costs. The unlocked savings potential can reach 25-30% when compared to the traditional shipper BAF.

How do we do it?

We track each shipment. Our solution provides for transparency and reduces marine fuel costs.

Why is it important?

Fuel costs account for up to 30% of the shipper's annual ocean freight bill. Managing this cost component properly results in significant savings. In the ever-changing regulatory environment, fuel prices continue to be extremely volatile. This creates fundamental risks for the shipper supply chain. Ecumene enables shipper's to manage these risks in a transparent and fact-based manner.

I already have a BAF. Isn't that enough?

Traditional BAF mechanisms result in a high level of distortion. Vital parts of fuel costs calculation such as vessel fuel consumption, relevant fuel grades, vessel routes, fuel prices are entirely ignored in a typical BAF.

What do we do?

Ecumene built the industry’s first per shipment, per voyage CO2 emissions calculation tool.

How do we do it?

We track each shipment. Our algorithm accounts for every aspect that affects the ultimate carbon footprint of an individual container.

Why is it important?

In the ever-changing regulatory environment, shippers will soon be liable for their emissions. Companies should only pay for what they emit. Without an effective mechanism, carriers tend to pass through costs in a non-transparent manner, which leads to unnecessary costs for the shipper.

Ecumene expertise with CO2

Ecumene is an active participant of regulatory discussions with the relevant authorities in the EU and beyond. We firmly believe that at the heart of any supply chain is the Beneficial Cargo Owner. Therefore, shippers’ perspective is essential in creating emissions reduction policies in maritime sector.

To advance this vision, we formed a partnership with the European Shippers Council (ESC). As part of this joint work, we participate in various discussion formats, one of them being the European Maritime Emissions Report (EMTER).
