INTTRA has introduced OceanSchedules.com, a free online service allowing shippers and forwarders to quickly search global ocean carrier sailing schedules.
"We know that for most multi-carrier shippers and forwarders, searching for comprehensive schedules data means visiting and downloading data from a number of different sources. We want to raise the bar by bringing all the voyage data together in one place and combine it with the most advanced technology to provide a global, comprehensive and interactive schedules resource," says Harry Sangree, managing director of OceanSchedules.com.
The site currently hosts 4.4 million voyage records, representing the INTTRA carrier network, OceanSchedules.com participating carriers and their alliances. These three groups reportedly represent more than 80 percent of the slot capacity of the world's top 25 carriers.
"OceanSchedules.com streamlines the process of searching for a voyage that includes researching alternative routes, selecting a carrier and sailing, and making a booking," Sangree says.
The new site is available at www.oceanschedules.com, as well as via the INTTRA.com homepage, and from within INTTRA's online transaction site:INTTRA-Act.
