APL tops INTTRA data survey

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, with APL, the boxline controlled by Neptune Orient Lines (NOL) topping the charts. 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.  [06/03/14]
