Parsippany: INTTRA, the world’s largest multi-carrier e-commerce network for ocean shipping, has announced the first results from its comprehensive ocean shipping information quality program, revealing exclusive insight into the quality of carrier data provided by the global containerized shipping industry. The program—comprised of a monthly carrier scorecard, the INTTRA Insights Platform for Visibility, and INTTRA Ocean IQ professional service engagements—was created in conjunction with ocean carriers to provide them with a standardized measurement system for global shipment data completeness, accuracy and timeliness.
The first published results revealed three carriers leading the way in providing the highest quality data: Singapore’s APL was in top place, Hamburg’s Hapag-Lloyd second and United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) in third spot. The rankings were derived from analysis into the shipment status events matched with the transport plans provided to shippers on the INTTRA network. This provides all carriers on INTTRA’s global e-commerce platform with a full view into data quality using completeness of information, as well as data measured from specific event milestones, regions and ports/terminals.
“Ensuring high levels of customer service is a central part of UASC’s strategy, and easy access to consistent, quality information plays an essential role in our approach,” said Uffe Ostergaard, Chief Commercial Officer, UASC. “We are pleased to be recognized as a top carrier driving high-quality information in INTTRA’s published results. As the industry continues to evolve in a digital world, our goal is to continue to lead by using advanced technologies like INTTRA’s platform to excel in delivering data that’s accurate, timely and drives business forward.” [06/03/14]
