Abstract

Two decades of survey research has shown that transit-time differences among ocean carriers are often secondary considerations in carrier selection. However, this study found that shippers can pay substantial premiums for superior ocean transit-time service, and cut logistics costs even when substantial variability occurs in landside segments of supply chains.
