    "The new system has greatly reduced the time it takes to issue booking requests and shipping instructions, ultimately delivering cost savings to Stora Enso. Now you don't have to sit and wait when the person that you need to speak to is on the line. You just send the booking. So you get more shipments done a day and you have more time to deal with the bigger issues."
    Anna Wilhelmsson, Supervisor and Coordinator, Stora Enso Infologistic

    "Since integrating with INTTRA our shipment processes are better. We see improvements in the turnaround time and data quality of our documentation.  Fewer revisions are necessary now, and that saves us time and money."
    Eric Wu, Vice-President, Casa China

    "INTTRA has allowed Safmarine, as well as Safmarine's customers, to speed up the integration of booking requests and confirmations, and shipping instructions and bills of lading.  By building a standard interface between INTTRA and Safmarine, we are able to offer our customers a convenient service at a low cost to us."

    "Kuehne + Nagel started with INTTRA's electronic sailing schedule. The next phase was electronic booking - INTTRA's eBooking tool - followed by electronic shipping instructions and Bills of Lading (Bs/L). And finally, of course, you want to know what's going to happen to your cargo, so we deployed INTTRA's electronic Track & Trace Information tool."
    Joachim Wohlers, Vice President of Global Sea Freight Systems, Kuehne & Nagel

    "Between its mills and its carriers worldwide, StoraEnso has a complex supply chain. Different carriers needed to use different interfaces. During the integration period, systems and processes have been aligned - with, for example, changes to internal coding and keyboard alterations made to reflect different national languages - to allow for seamless communication between StoraEnso's transport and distribution centers and its carriers. The new system has greatly reduced the time it takes to issue booking requests and shipping instructions, ultimately delivering cost savings to StoraEnso."
    Anna Wilhelmsson, Supervisor and Coordinator, Stora Enso Infologistic
