INTTRA, an ocean shipping marketplace, has generated 16% growth in 2016 over 2015 in container orders, which include bookings, shipping instructions and shipping orders, and is more than five times the industry rate.
The company processed 38.5 million container orders on its platform and its impressive growth is against containership sailings in the industry, which rose by just 3% in 2016, according to analysis from Container Trade Statistics.
INTTRA also tracked a record 427 million container status events in 2016 through its Track & Trace service, which it claims is the world's largest source of container tracking information and the foundation of INTTRA's growing data analytics business.
John Fay, INTTRA’s CEO, said: “INTTRA played a significant role in 2016 as the rate of technology and digitisation accelerated rapidly in the ocean industry. We believe that digitisation is now indispensable.
“In 2016, INTTRA introduced innovative regulatory compliance and data analytics products, and also strengthened its industry leading platform, expanded its network and improved customer experience.
“The changes in ocean shipping over the past twelve months show that the digital divide is widening and the path to success in ocean shipping is combining the best of digitisation with a strong physical network.
“This trend will continue and INTTRA is committed to helping our customers achieve this synergy with innovative solutions that leverage the technologies of today and tomorrow.”
PTI recently spoke to Inna Kuznetsova, President and COO at INTTRA (below), about the company's broadened portfolio of Decision Support Dashboards, which help customers optimise shipment performance by providing a comprehensive view of their shipment histories based on their own data.
INTTRA's Dwell Time Dashboard measures turnaround time for various phases of the shipping lifecycle, while the Status Event Dashboard enhances planning and container management with full visibility into shipment notifications.
Kuznetsova will be speaking at PTI's Terminal Automation & Training C-Level Networking Conference 2017 from April 19 – 20, 2017, in London, UK.
