INTTRA, the leading e-commerce portal for the ocean freight industry, today announced that it has completed a national integration project with Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, Inc., successfully deploying the use of INTTRA Link across all 25 offices in the United States.
INTTRA Link is an integration service that offers customers with a high volume of shipping transactions the option of using XML or EDI to link their systems with carriers. Customers like Hellmann Worldwide Logistics integrate once to the INTTRA platform to take advantage of the multiple XML and EDI connections between INTTRA and its carrier partners - saving money and time in managing and maintaining multiple high speed direct connections.
Hellmann’s annual export volume from the US exceeds 35,000 TEU, transporting commodities such as machinery, paper, forrest products, chemicals, resin and more. Based on the success of this initial implementation, the next phase is the global roll out and linking to all 443 Hellmann offices in 157 countries with INTTRA.
“INTTRA was proactive and visited many Hellmann Branches throughout the US to help with implementation. Although we came across some initial challenges due to the difficulties in mapping out complicated data, INTTRA worked dilligently to solve these issues in a short period of time,” said Thomas Krusin, Vice President Product Development, Ocean at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, Inc. “Now with the INTTRA technology in place, we are already seeing the benefit across the US offices.”
With integration teams located around the world and hundreds of integrations completed, INTTRA provides one of the most experienced project management teams. The Company’s experts combine their e-commerce know-how with a deep understanding of shipping, carrier systems and customer’s local market needs.
“We are pleased that Hellmann Worldwide has selected to work with INTTRA. Hellmann is an established organization with a reputation built on integrity and trust,” said Ken Bloom, CEO of INTTRA. “Our relationship will work to increase supply chain efficiency, resulting in quality service, coupled with reliability that customers have come to expect from our two organizations.”
