Shippers deserve a better way to effectively manage their contracts

Shippers have experienced a ton of pain and unreliability in today’s global shipping market. NYSHEX helps Shippers better manage their ocean freight contracts to optimize contract performance and eliminate manual work.


Accurately managing contract performance is nearly impossible

Today shippers and carriers use different systems, have different definitions of performance, and contract performance management is done in excel and email with static data. The result is wasted time, excessive freight costs, and lots of stress.


A shared source of truth for contract performance

The NYSHEX for Shippers solution integrates data from carriers, NVOCCs, and shippers to provide a shared source of truth for both contract performance as well as future looking proactive allocation management.

The NYSHEX for Shippers solution begins with either Shipper Allocation Management or via an existing contract with a NYSHEX carrier or NVOCC

Shipper Allocation Management

Connect your demand forecast with your carrier booking data to get a clear allocation utilization outlook across all of your fixed-rate ocean contracts.

Performance Reporting

NYSHEX provides standardized performance reporting for all types of commercial agreements​. Drill down into lane and booking-level detail in order to drive actionable insights. This level of granularity ensures that shippers and carriers know when contracts go off track and need to take action.

Automated Exception Logging

When your contract is off track, our system automatically flags the issue and shows the relevant data.

Exception Reconciliation

Our exception tool helps you understand what went wrong in your contract, the number of containers that didn’t meet the commitment, who’s responsible, and any penalties that may be incurred as a result of non-performance.

April Zobel Profit Center Manager at The Andersons

“With NYSHEX, it’s coming to an agreement. You’re not going to measure the performance. I’m not going to measure the performance. A third party is going to do that and then you can have that mutual conversation about what the data shows. Using NYSHEX brings honesty to the table and also brings that transparency and knowledge that what you signed for is what you’re going to get, regardless of what happens in the future.”
