INTTRA, the world’s largest, multi-carrier e-commerce network for ocean shipping, announced today that International Forwarding S.L. (IFS) has joined the INTTRA network. Headquartered in Spain, this multinational non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC) with offices in five countries works exclusively with freight forwarders to bring consolidated container service to the global ocean shipping community.
Working with more than 1,200 freight forwarders globally, IFS understands the need for reliable and efficient shipping transaction support. By joining the INTTRA network, the company is not only able to help its customers improve efficiencies, but can ensure its place in the industry as a leader in employing an e-commerce solution.
“We chose to work with INTTRA because of the company’s reputation for providing the best e-commerce platform for the ocean shipping industry,” said Jose Quilis, IFS CEO. “Not only is INTTRA able to help us improve efficiencies, but also provides services to make us more agile for our customers. We will be leading the way in e-commerce adoption for the NVOCCs.”
“In today’s competitive market, NVOCCs need accurate data and proven e-commerce solutions to increase profitability, ensure customer satisfaction and grow new business,” said Robert Serrano, INTTRA’s senior sales director for EMEA. “By joining the INTTRA network, IFS will gain a significant market advantage through faster service and increased visibility into the ocean shipping supply chain.”
In conjunction with IFS joining the INTTRA network, the Port of Valencia’s Port Community System, an INTTRA alliance partner, has enhanced its integration to include NVOCC services. With this enhancement, any Spanish freight forwarders connected to valenciaportpcs.net can now perform ocean shipping transactions to IFS through the INTTRA network.
The INTTRA/IFS integration project and the development of Valencia Port Community System integration to include INTTRA’s NVOCC services have been carried out as part of the MOS4MOS Project, co-financed by the European Union.
International Forwarding SL is the largest, most successful, and 100% neutral NVOCC in Spain. Running more than 110 direct import and export consolidation services, and with offices in Portugal, Mexico, the USA and Morocco, bring 27 years expertise to the market with the most reliable and efficient range of services available.
