Ocean shipping industry’s largest e-commerce network to share strategies and new innovations for enhancing visibility and data quality in the shipment supply chain
Parsippany, NJ, March 13, 2014 — In today’s fast-moving business environment, more logistics professionals see the critical need for complete visibility into their supply chains, but many still struggle with lack of access to quality data and a reliance on manual processes. Without access to data that is timely, accurate and consistently delivered, supply chains will remain riddled with inefficient processes and information gaps that hurt the bottom line.
INTTRA (Booth # 2816), the world’s largest multi-carrier e-commerce network for ocean shipping, will tackle these issues head-on at the Supply Chain & Transportation USA Exhibition & Conference, to be held March 17-20 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA. INTTRA will share strategies and solutions for improving business through supply chain visibility and access to high quality data. The company will host two panels featuring top executives and thought leaders from the global logistics and ocean shipping industries. They are:

The panel is moderated by Mike Levans, Group Editorial Director, Logistics Management. Time: 11:30 am on Tuesday, March 18.
