Inttra, the container shipping industry’s largest neutral, third party electronic transfer network, and Cairo-headquartered Transmar Corporation have joined together to offer electronic booking and shipping data processing in the Middle East, Red Sea, Arabian Gulf and East Coast of Africa regions.
Transmar customers can now send their booking and shipping instructions through Inttra’s global network, increasing operational efficiency by shifting to digital transactions. Inna Kuznetsova, Inttra’s president and chief operating officer, says, “The addition of Transmar as one of our newest carriers means their customers will have a more efficient way to book containers and receive container tracking information.”
Transmar believes the collaboration offers a path to achieving better growth and customer satisfaction through digitisation, which has the potential to take a significant amount of cost out of itsoperations. Mohamed El Ahwal, chief executive, Transmar, adds, “Inttra and its network will enable us to expand by reducing manual bookings, and building a more efficient booking experience for our customers.”
Inttra connects more than 50 leading carriers and over 130 software alliance partners, streamlining the ocean trade process. Over 800,000 container orders are initiated on the platform each week, representing more than 25 per cent of global ocean container trade, it is claimed.
Transmar is a container shipping line that provides services connecting Egypt, the UAE and Saudi Arabia primarily. Previously known as IACC Shipping, the company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of IACC Holdings.
