INTTRA, an e-commerce platform for the ocean freight industry, is now extending its network to enable all forwarders and shippers to gain the benefits of an electronic standardized business process through the INTTRA network, for both LCL and FCL shipments.
With the introduction of INTTRA’s NVOCC e-commerce platform, ECU LINE is now connected to the INTTRA network to receive shipping instructions from their shippers. This follows a successful pilot program earlier this year with ECU LINE, the Antwerp- based global NVOCC, to receive shipping instructions electronically from its customers on the INTTRA network.
“We have joined INTTRA to receive transactions electronically and this is an additional tool to serve our customers,” said Franky Van Doren, CEO CEE W-E-S AFRICA and Sr. vice president for ECU LINE group “Going forward we would like to reach a point where the majority of our shipping transactions are electronic. We expect the INTTRA network to be our fastest growing electronic documentation channel.”
In an exclusive interview last month with INTTRA vice president Andy Barrons, LM learned that rate structures are firming up on all trade lanes for contract shippers. The charter market, he added, continues to be more volatile.
