INTTRA, the largest neutral electronic transaction platform, software and information provider at the centre of the ocean shipping industry, has announced a new service offering from its partnership with Info-X Software Technology.
The logistic software solutions and back-office service provider for global NVOCCs and freight forwarders has integrated its new cloud-based transportation management system with INTTRA's booking engine, enabling communication between numerous parties across INTTRA's network.
United Cargo Management (UCM), a prominent US-based NVOCC, piloted the new system to accept electronic bookings and shipping instructions from their customers, ensuring speedier cargo bookings and providing real-time cargo tracking and tracing that was previously unavailable.
