New E-Shipping Software for Freight Forwarders

Independent freight forwarders on Worldwide Information Network Platform (WIN) gain quality data from INTTRA's multi-carrier e-commerce network.

INTTRA, the multi-carrier e-commerce network for ocean shipping, announced an expanded strategic alliance with Worldwide Information Network (WIN), a cloud-based connectivity platform specifically for independent freight forwarders, to drive the development of new e-shipping solutions for WIN's growing network of freight forwarders. This will enable WIN users to gain enhanced visibility, automation capabilities and improved data quality using INTTRA's global e-shipping platform linked to 52 ocean carriers.

INTTRA has the largest global e-commerce platform supporting the full containerized shipping process---from finding a voyage to booking services to freight invoicing. More than 220,000 users access INTTRA's capabilities via the web, within applications, or through system integrations to existing shipping systems and transportation management software (TMS). WIN's platform connects forwarding agents with each other---as well as with air and sea carriers, brokers and other logistics service providers---to enable secure, digital shipment-level collaboration in the cloud.

This expanded alliance with INTTRA enables WIN to create new end-to-end shipment and track-and-trace solutions that help origination and destination freight forwarders gain the benefits of INTTRA's platform, along with high-quality container event shipping data. WIN was developed in close collaboration with WCA, a member of the ELITE Association of Logistics Networks. ELITE's 10 networks are comprised of more than 6,200 member offices in 195 countries with annual revenues in excess of (US) $60 billion.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
