INTTRA offers shippers and their carriers an online tool, web support and on-site training to make the Tender process faster and more efficient. Shippers and carriers benefit from greater convenience, improved accuracy and more control over the Tender process.

  • Decision Support: The ability to review of the cost impact of carrier selections, changes to trade lanes, services and carrier strategies.
