INTTRA Releases New Shipping Application Delivery Platform and INTTRA Booking Application
October 09, 2012
Industry’s first modular application architecture enables easy integration and deployment of INTTRA applications from within existing logistics systems
Parsippany, NJ, October 9, 2012 – INTTRA, the world’s largest, most active network for ocean shipping, announced today the release of its Shipping Application Delivery Platform for rapidly integrating and deploying individual INTTRA applications from within existing logistics, transportation management or ERP systems. Now shippers and software providers for the shipping industry can quickly and economically embed INTTRA’s capabilities to extend and enhance their own shipping solutions. Additionally, the company announced the availability of INTTRA Booking through this new architecture, which enables members of the INTTRA network to access the full range of application features - initiating, amending, canceling and tracking ocean bookings - at a fraction of the time and cost of developing a full-scaled booking application themselves.
This is the second in a series of releases that enable shippers to deliver shipping transaction capabilities as well as full integration with the INTTRA network to transact with over 40 carriers and NVOCCs. Last month, INTTRA announced the ability to embed the OceanSchedules solution through the Application Delivery Platform, giving shippers access to more than 7 million global schedules from 31 carriers.
“With the introduction of this Shipping Application Delivery Platform, customers can leverage a complete INTTRA application from within their current systems and be up and running in as little as two weeks,” said Ivan Latanision, Senior Vice President of Product Management at INTTRA. “With more than a decade of experience delivering the most-used booking application, it was a natural next step for INTTRA to develop an application delivery platform for the industry. More than 9.25 million bookings were placed through INTTRA over the last year alone, so it made sense for us to create a mechanism for our customers to leverage these applications in their existing environments.”
“We are pleased to be delivering new value and time-saving capabilities to our customers,” said John Chang, Product Marketing Director for Shipping Solutions at INTTRA. “We are taking the lead on advancing the way that shipping applications are built. We are now delivering the ability to seamlessly integrate INTTRA shipment processing solutions through any logistics, transportation management or ERP system, providing customers with increased options to deploy a solution that best meets their needs.”
