INTTRA Collaborates with the School of Shipping

The South African-based School of Shipping offers adults an education in maritime studies specifically relating to importing and exporting, and has announced a collaboration through which School of Shipping students will make use of INTTRA’s training environment as part of their coursework.

Students will be able to simulate shipment management for the ocean stages of container transport. That process includes planning container bookings through Ocean Schedules (INTTRA’s search tool to identify sailings), executing bookings, submitting shipping instructions and container weight information for SOLAS VGM compliance, tracking containers and a range of other functions.

“Aligning with INTTRA to create this training module enhances our program by giving our students insight into the practical application of the theoretical training we provide,” said Louw Franken, Director at School of Shipping. “By training on the premier technology platform in ocean shipping, students will develop a firm understanding of communication with carriers on core functions as well as basic operations and functions of exporting. We expect this collaboration to help create better-qualified graduates and eliminate the need for additional basic training when they join BCOs and forwarders.”

“We are honored that this highly respected institution has selected INTTRA’s shipment management platform as a training environment for maritime education,” said Philly Teixeira, INTTRA’s President, EMEA. “As the largest neutral network at the center of ocean shipping, INTTRA is always looking for ways to help move the industry forward. We believe that helping School of Shipping students gain the strongest possible practical foundation for safety and success is a great way to do that.”
