Some container carriers manage to sail a lot cheaper than their competitors because they have a higher degree of control over their fuel consumption and are better at communicating with the captain in terms of reducing bunker consumption, according to a new benchmark analysis performed by Boston Consulting Group (BCG), which has compared container ships from 17 different owners, including eight of the world's largest container carriers.

And the analysis shows an 18 percent difference between the various ships in terms bunker-related expenses. BCG declines to name the carriers that top the analysis.
