INTTRA, the largest neutral electronic transaction platform, software and information provider at the center of the ocean shipping industry, today announced an expansion of its rapidly growing carrier network with the addition of Korea’s Namsung Shipping Co. Ltd.
NAMSUNG, established in 1953 as the first private ocean going shipping carrier in Korea, provides services throughout Asia, with routes targeting Korea to Japan, China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Thailand and intra-Asia routes. NAMSUNG will offer its customers a full suite of services through INTTRA’s network, including shipping instructions, booking requests, shipping orders for North China, Track and Trace, eVGM and Ocean Schedules. NAMSUNG will connect their internal EDI engine EMAP that they developed to INTTRA, whose booking platform allows carriers to connect through EDI, API or a web connection based on their preferences and capabilities.
“We are delighted to welcome NAMSUNG, one of the leading providers of marine transportation services in Asia, to our network,” said Inna Kuznetsova, President and COO of INTTRA. “As our industry continues to embrace digitalization, a single connection to our platform links the world’s top carriers to more than 30,000 shipping companies and in turn enables regional carriers such as NAMSUNG to provide a higher level of customer support.”
“We are pleased to join the world’s largest neutral network providing increased shipping options for our customers,” said Yongkyu Kim, President of NAMSUNG. “By taking advantage of INTTRA’s outstanding platform, our valuable customers will continue to enjoy working with NAMSUNG as we provide enhanced and specialized shipping solutions. We believe that this marvelous opportunity will offer positive synergy for all parties by reducing costs and providing better and more efficient processes. NAMSUNG has been looking forward to joining INTTRA’s fine platform and is excited it is now a reality.”
