INTTRA expands into empty container repositioning with Avantida acquisition
INTTRA has moved into the repositioning of empty containers on the landside with the acquisition of Avantida in Europe with an aim to rapidly expand the service.
The acquisition sees ocean shipping electronic market place INTTRA make its first foray into the landside of the business. Belgium-headquartered Avantida’s business is based around the provided digitized systems for the automated re-use of empty containers matching the locations of empties with shippers requiring boxes.
“With Avantida we are bringing additional products and services to that customer base with the opportunity to be more efficient with container usage on the landside, which is a very large pain point for customers,” John Fay ceo of INTTRA told Seatrade Maritime News.
