  4. How? Improve weekly forecasting process on equipment level per origin / outport, revise loadprocess Africa (stable loadplan and pre-selection process to move damaged containers to Asia), improve positioning process empty containers in export areas  (positioning vs cabotage), set up a simulation tool to calculate impact of chartering decisions and manage flows / stcok development with an outlook of 3 months.
