PARSIPPANY, N.J. -- May 01, 2013
INTTRA, the world’s largest multi-carrier shipping network for ocean freight
and Maersk Line, the leading container shipping company in the world announced
an expanded relationship, entering into a multi-year contract as part of a
strategic growth strategy for both companies. As a result, Maersk Line and its
brands Seago Line, Safmarine and MCC will extend the benefits of the INTTRA
e-commerce shipping network to its customers, making INTTRA the preferred
global portal for automating shipping processes.
The new agreement is the latest business partnership between INTTRA and Maersk
Line, which spans 12 years. Since first working together, the two companies
have maintained a joint commitment to improve customer satisfaction, remove
costs and drive efficiencies through the use of e-commerce solutions in the
ocean shipping industry. As both the market and customers have matured, INTTRA
and Maersk Line have evolved e-commerce from an independent IT activity to an
essential business solution for more profitable commercial growth.
“We have seen firsthand the benefits of integrating technology and business
solutions to drive success in the ocean shipping industry. By leveraging
INTTRA e-business solutions, we are able to continue to provide more value to
our customers and position ourselves for long-term growth,” said Jesper E.
Thomsen, Head of Sales & Customer Service at Maersk Line. “We recognize that
our continued expansion of e-business solutions is vital in maintaining our
position as the industry’s leading global carrier and meeting our commitment
to customer service excellence. As such, it was a natural decision to renew
our growth contract with INTTRA.”
Customers will continue to enjoy the same Maersk Line service by using
INTTRA’s multi-carrier solution as they will by using Maersk Line’s
proprietary e-business solution.
“As we work together under this new agreement, Maersk Line will continue to be
an essential business partner for INTTRA. Both our customers are seeking
e-business solutions, so by collaborating together we’re able to support
customer demands for standardized shipping processes and drive additional
e-business penetration,” said Ken Bloom, CEO at INTTRA. “Our long history as
strategic business partners serves us both well as we enter this period of
growth with a strong focus on better serving current customers, as well as new
customers who are seeking to reap the rewards of e-shipping solutions.”
