Fast, low-cost and high-efficiency are the core competitiveness of shipping companies in international marine transportation. To better guide shipping companies to optimize freight pricing under the dynamic environment of supply chain, this paper carries out freight pricing research based on supply chain management. It takes the container liners of shipping companies as the research object. From the perspective of supply chain analysis and based on factors affecting the pricing of shipping companies, it completes the mathematical simulation of the freight pricing mechanism of shipping companies; from the aspects of customer group and order time in supply chain management, this paper establishes the discriminatory pricing and multi-stage dynamic pricing models for market segments respectively, and verifies the validity of the models by examples. The model solution results show that discriminatory pricing and multi-stage dynamic pricing can assist shipping companies to optimize freight pricing and maximize the company's revenue. The research is of guiding significance for guiding shipping companies to cope with the contradiction between supply and demand in the market and to improve their competitiveness in the international container liner shipping market.
