Shipping Benchmarking Initiative

BCG’s Shipping Benchmarking Initiative (SBI) helps shipping companies achieve a new level of cost transparency across such areas as daily running cost, bunker consumption and procurement, terminal handling, intermodal, and organizational effectiveness. More than 50 leading shipping companies with more than 2,500 vessels participate in SBI, including ten global container carriers.

The results, in which companies remain anonymous, are available only to participants and their operations teams and help carriers optimize their transformation programs in the following ways:

  • Facilitating constructive, fact-based team dialogue
  • Identifying root causes behind variations in performance
  • Monitoring performance against competitors and peer groups
  • Identifying new best practices and optimizing initiatives
  • Quantifying expected bottom-line impact to improve target setting and resource allocation

Leading participants consider the SBI the most comprehensive and actionable benchmark in the shipping industry. The SBI is open to companies across all major shipping segments, including container, tanker, and dry-bulk shippers.
