Online ocean freight marketplace INTTRA has added Evergreen Marine, Namsung Shipping, Unifeeder and Antillean Marine Shipping to its carrier network.
The continuing growth of INTTRA’s carrier network signals the rapid adoption of digitalization across the industry. More than 60 carriers, including all of the top 10, are INTTRA customers*.
“Everyone wins when our network scales in size,” said Inna Kuznetsova, president and COO of INTTRA. “Carriers joining INTTRA benefit by providing a great customer experience to shippers and by attracting more business as a result. Shippers benefit as they can book and trace containers from multiple carriers in a standard manner and through a single connection, reducing costs and errors. The expansion of our network and the introduction of new integrated solutions to digitalize key pieces of the container shipping lifecycle are all part of our larger vision to help reinvent the container shipping industry for the digital age.”
Namsung Shipping provides shipping services throughout Asia, operating routes from Korea to Japan, China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Thailand and other Asian markets. Unifeeder is the largest and feeder and shortsea platform in Europe, while Antillean Marine Shipping serves routes from Miami to Port-Au-Prince, Cap-Haïtien, Puerto Plata and Rio Haina, as well as intra-island routes between the Dominican Republic and Haiti. All four carriers will be available on INTTRA’s platform upon completion of integration.
“2017 was a tremendous year for INTTRA, with container orders growing by 12%, and the company processing 45 million container orders on its platform,” said John Fay, CEO of INTTRA. “Our network growth, both in transaction volume and in participants, means we are no longer approaching the digital tipping point – the digital tipping point has arrived.”
More than 60 carriers are members of the INTTRA network, including all of the top 10 lines.
