inttra, the e-commerce organization for global shipping industry, has provided us not only with a data exchange platform but also created a new operation module. This module standardizes electronic data conversion and transmission; it is faster and more accurate. We have greatly improved our efficiency and reduced labor costs.

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.
With so many different vendors moving a diverse mix of cargo simultaneously, we wanted the efficiency and accuracy of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), and the visibility that it provides. The consolidation platform has led to saving on Bill of Lading fees of $25-$75 per shipment. INTTRA’s Service Delivery Team linked AGT to INTTRA’s powerful platform, specifically its Ocean Schedules, Container Booking, Shipping Instructions and Track & Trace products, to create a seamless, electronic framework to manage shipping globally.
Intercomex has reduced costs by 25 to 30 percent since using INTTRA Desktop for the past 10 years. We went from having six employees manage every 100 shipments, to having only two employees managing the same shipment frequency, delivering the same level of customer service. Prior to using INTTRA, everything was manual and we used to send numerous emails. When Intercomex tried INTTRA for the first time, the team was impressed with the response and ease of integration, with 24,000 employees and thousands of customers.
We operate more than 600,000TEU each year. INTTRA helped us solve the problem of electronic data transmission with the carrier and provided additional value-added information services, greatly improving the efficiency of our work.

KTNET has diversified its original service of e-Trade and Korea Customs Manifest service into a wide variety of areas such as B2B, FTA among others. Without inttra, we would not be able to expand from our B2B service encompassing carriers, forwarders and two basic but essential partners in the shipping industry, to what we represent today. We did not have any overseas connection and customers in our service suites; this was accomplished only with our relation with inttra.
