The companies agree that INTTRA will support APL’s global e-commerce growth strategy, as well as enhance its global customer service offerings.
With more than two million container orders initiated on the INTTRA platform each month, INTTRA says it reaches the largest worldwide community of ocean freight buyers with solutions for online, desktop and system-to-system integrations. The INTTRA network includes over 64,000 companies, shipping to and from more than 130 countries. This broad e-commerce reach will enable APL to more quickly and effectively deliver the increased efficiency and cost saving benefits of electronic shipping to customers in all the markets it serves.
“After two successful years with the INTTRA network, we are ready to expand our relationship,” said Seng Kwee Lim, Director of Global Customer Support & eCommerce of APL. “We are committed to setting new benchmarks in service innovation for our customers, and we are pleased to partner with INTTRA to provide our customers with best-in-class e-commerce capabilities.”
The APL-INTTRA agreement expands upon an existing relationship between the two companies and provides for a more rapid expansion of e-business capabilities for existing customers at APL, as well as new and existing members of the INTTRA network.
“APL is an important business partner for INTTRA and a recognized market leading global carrier, so we look forward to expanding our relationship with them,” said Ken Bloom, Chief Executive Officer at INTTRA. “Together, we can support more customers and drive greater adoption of e-commerce to deliver greater efficiency, exceptional customer service, and innovative solutions for our mutual customers.”
