Ocean cargo carrier “reliability” comes under closer scrutiny

SeaIntel will enhance its current report on Schedule Reliability with actual delivery performance data from INTTRA

By ·

INTTRA, a portal-based ocean cargo technology provider, will be working with shipping analyst SeaIntel to produce a monthly report on key ocean carrier reliability measures.
 
According to spokesmen, SeaIntel will enhance its current report on Schedule Reliability with actual delivery performance data from INTTRA. 

“On-time delivery and schedule reliability are both critical measures to gain a deeper understanding of what underlies industry performance and predictability,” said spokesmen.
“SeaIntel will distribute the report within two weeks of month end, thereby making information immediately actionable and more valuable to shipping decision makers.”

In addition to the monthly report, INTTRA and SeaIntel will also collaborate to publish a series of analysis reports looking more deeply at other factors that contribute to ocean cargo on-time performance. 

Lars Jensen, CEO of SeaIntel Maritime Analysis, said the partnership will enable analysts to examine “shipper behavior” like amendments, changes and cancellations.

“These actions can further impact carrier performance,” he said. 

Earlier this year, a similar effort to help importers and exporters benchmark their carriers’ service levels was announced by Drewry and CargoSmart when they agreed to introduce a wider range of container Key Performance Indicators.

Last April, INTTRA announced the continued expansion of the Standards Advisory Board. This is an independent, collaborative industry group that defines and drives adoption of global standards for electronic invoicing presentment and payment. Members include ocean carriers, third party logistics providers, freight forwarders and non-vessel operating common carriers.
