INTTRA by E2open (INTTRA) was formed in 2018 when INTTRA merged with E2open to create a unified global logistics and supply chain network. The acquisition by E2open, the largest cloud-based provider of networked supply chain solutions, brings together the world leader in ocean shipping logistics covering a majority of ocean shipping container capacity, with the global supply chain and logistics network of E2open. With this unification, customers of both companies realize extensive efficiencies and ease of use across global supply chain and logistics management.
INTTRA was originally founded in 2001 by the world’s largest carriers to create a standard electronic booking system for the ocean freight industry. Neutral from the start, the company and its platform evolved from its roots as a booking engine to provide a full range of software solutions and services for both shippers and carriers.
INTTRA is now the largest neutral digital network and information provider at the center of the ocean shipping industry, streamlining the ocean trade process by connecting more than 35,000 shippers across 177 countries with 60 leading carriers and NVOCCs and 150 software alliance partners.
