 INTTRA, the multi-carrier e-commerce network for ocean shipping, has announced an expanded strategic alliance with Worldwide Information Network (WIN), a cloud-based connectivity platform specifically for independent freight forwarders, to drive the development of new e-shipping solutions for WIN’s growing network of freight forwarders. This will enable WIN users to gain enhanced visibility, automation capabilities, and improved data quality using INTTRA’s global e-shipping platform linked to 52 ocean carriers.

INTTRA has a e-commerce platform that supports the full containerized shipping process—from finding a voyage to booking services to freight invoicing. Over 220,000 users access INTTRA’s capabilities via the web, within applications, or through system integrations to existing shipping systems and transportation management software (TMS). WIN’s platform connects forwarding agents with each other—as well as with air and sea carriers, brokers, and other logistics service providers—to enable secure, digital shipment-level collaboration in the cloud.

This expanded alliance with INTTRA enables WIN to create new end-to-end shipment and track-and-trace solutions that help origination and destination freight forwarders gain the benefits of INTTRA’s platform, along with the easy access it offers to high-quality container event shipping data. WIN was developed in close collaboration with WCA, a member of the ELITE Association of Logistics Networks. ELITE’s 10 networks are comprised of over 6,200 member offices in 195 countries with annual revenues in excess of (US) $60 billion.

“This expanded alliance with INTTRA will enable WIN to accelerate the delivery of a new generation of digital shipping and visibility solutions to help independent freight forwarders excel on the global playing field,” says John DeBenedette, Managing Director, WIN.
