- Customer Testimonials
“Each of our carriers uses a different process to deliver drafts and Final B/Ls – some carriers host B/Ls at their website, others deliver B/Ls by email, fax or courier. With so much inconsistency, it’s inevitable that some files ‘fall through the cracks’. With INTTRA, anyone on the team can check B/L status and finalize the B/L from one location – INTTRA.com”
Koen Van Doorn, General Manager, Supply Chain Management, Nestle Nederland

"Our experience with the INTTRA team has been very positive and CMA CGM has already seen significant potential cost savings and process improvements to our accounts receivable operations. After the electronic booking, and the electronic bill of lading, the electronic invoice was the next improvement we wanted to provide our clients and we are absolutely delighted to be the first to proceed with electronic invoicing via INTTRA eInvoice.”
