INTTRA: How to Control Container Forecasting

 10 Jan 2018 10.22am

Inna Kuznetsova, President and CCO at INTTRA, has explained how the company's C-FAST (Container Forecast and Allocation Solutions Tool) can improve operations for non-vessel operators (NVOs) and freight forwarders.

INTTRA C-FAST provides an automated, intuitive method for freight forwarders to guide shipments through an efficient and contract-aware allocation process.

It can reduce manual effort nearly 40% by matching customer forecast and carrier capacity through the use of a predictive, controlled workflow.

Kuznetsova will be a speaker at Port Technology's Container Terminal Automation Conference on March 14 – 15, 2018 - London, UK

INTTRA is the largest neutral electronic transaction platform, software and information provider at the centre of the ocean shipping industry.

In the in the interview, Kuznetsova said: "The booking of containers is formed in multiple countries by many different people who don't always have access to the information that is required ... bringing together all this data requires data and analytics tools.

"It's very difficult for a human being to manage it, let alone manage it in real time across multiple countries — this is what C-FAST does."
