The neutral non-vessel operating common carrier Vanguard Logistics Services has expanded its partnership with the multi-carrier e-commerce network for ocean shipping INTTRA, the companies said Tuesday.
Vanguard will join INTTRA’s NVO network bringing the size of the INTTRA carrier and NVO network to 48. Under the agreement, Vanguard and its global network of NVO brands will leverage the INTTRA platform to deliver an e-commerce shipping solution to its customers. Vanguard customers and agents around the world will immediately be able to automate and streamline ocean freight shipment processing and improve access to shipment information through the INTTRA network.
“In a market where positive margin growth can remain elusive, we are pleased to be part of Vanguard’s plan for continuous investment in strategic markets and technologies to improve their service delivery,” said Ronald DeBlis, INTTRA senior vice president of global sales, in a statement. “We believe that by leveraging the strengths of both of our organizations, we can make an immediate improvement to the efficiency and accuracy of shipments for thousands of shippers touched by the combination of both our networks.”
“As Vanguard continues to execute a thoughtful and aggressive global expansion plan, we determined that INTTRA provided one of the most comprehensive platforms and global presence to help us to provide better e-commerce services to our network of agencies and clients,” said Charlie Brennan, executive chairman at Vanguard. - Eric Johnson
