INTTRA, the leading provider of e-commerce solutions for the ocean freight industry, invites attendees of the 2012 Trans-Pacific Maritime Conference (TPM) to join a special breakout session on “Enhancing Collaboration through Performance Measurements”, which will take place on Wednesday, March 7 at 9:00am. This session will be led by Milan Vaclavik, director of product management at INTTRA and Lars Jenson, CEO of SeaIntel Maritime Analysis, who will share their insights on carrier and shipper performance and how a revolutionary business insights platform from INTTRA, OceanMetrics, is enabling a new conversation on accurate, real-time performance metrics in order to move the industry forward.
With nearly 1,800 attendees in 2011, TPM continues to be a must-attend for transportation and logistics professionals. The 2012 event promises to deliver not only a significant networking opportunity, but also an in-depth look at current issues in emerging sourcing and consumer markets in Asia, China’s role as the leading source of U.S. container goods and more.
Measuring performance of carriers, shippers and trading partners across the ocean supply chain is integral to improving and optimizing workflow. However, a key challenge among the industry has been the absence of a standard set of metrics with a common set of data. Milan and Lars will engage attendees in an in-depth discussion on industry performance measurement, as well as how to identify and evaluate effective performance metrics. They will also provide an overview of how shippers and carriers can better collaborate using common information and an agreed-upon set of metrics available through OceanMetrics, which is powered by transactional data that represents more than 15% of global ocean container trade.
