Ocean containers that are not moving according to plan create physical vulnerabilities, customer-delivery uncertainty, and higher costs to the supply chain. To address this issue, Inttra, an e-commerce pOréal for the ocean freight industry, has unveiled Inttra Idle Container Management (ICM). This on-demand shipment management solution allows shippers and freight forwarders to manage exceptions in the oceancontainer supply chain quickly and efficiently. Inttra ICM gives customers visibility across multiple ocean carriers, customers, and locations and sends out alerts if a particular shipment is not moving as planned. This allows the shipper to resolve potential problems before they escalate.
By leveraging Inttra's comprehensive global network of carriers and trading partners, Inttra ICM merges commercial and operational data into information that shippers and freight forwarders can use to avoid costly delays at critical supply chain junctures. Inttra ICM allows shippers to track, control, and share supply chain data to meet business critical needs.
The system provides visibility throughout the supply chain in order to track all active shipments based on business needs and to manage shipments via multiple references, including booking, bill of lading, and purchase order number. Inttra ICM also identifies key operational details, including the latest container event and location and vessel/voyage information, both at the shipment and container level.
Inttra ICM also helps transform data into the information that shippers and their customers need to run a global supply chain. User-defined alarms, searches, and filters make identifying and addressing potential problems easy and intuitive.
Inttra ICM then makes it easy to share information, both within an organization as well as with the organization's global trading partners. User-defined exception alerts help internal teams consistently identify and respond to potential issues. The ICM data export feature also allows organizations to quickly forward shipment details to the necessary business units or partners.
