Avantida, part of INTTRA, has announced that shipping companies CMA CGM and Hapag-Lloyd are offering its reUse container triangulation service in Mexico.
Available for the first time in North America, on Avantida’s online platform, reUse allows transport companies to redirect unloaded import containers back to their export customers.
This removes the need for unloaded containers to return to the port or assigned depot, which avoids waiting times at terminals and eliminates unnecessary mileage.
In addition to this, the reduced transport needed as part of this service decreases both CO2 emissions and overall costs for customers of Avantida, CMA CGM and Hapag-Lloyd.

Luc De Clerck, CEO of Avantida, commented on the expansion: “After successfully rolling out our platform across Europe, we are absolutely thrilled to be able to help container transport companies in Mexico become more effective.
“The Avantida platform will provide fantastic new opportunities to the Mexican transport community to save both money and time every single day.”
Kapil Garg, Head of Inland Operations Latin America at CMA CGM, also made a statement: “Re-use is a completely new concept for the container transport sector in Mexico.
“Using an import container to go straight to your export customer without having to go back to the terminal is a refreshing advancement for planners and dispatchers. Being able to manage this on Avantida’s platform makes this new way of planning even easier to adopt.”
Avantida has expanded in existing markets and entered new ones during the last year, including Germany, France, Poland and Lithuania.
