INTTRA recently announced their order results from 2016 and it revealed a jump to 16% growth in 2016 over 2015 in container orders, which include bookings, shipping instructions and shipping orders. The company processed 38.5 million container orders on its platform. Containership sailings in the industry rose by just 3% in 2016, according to Container Trade Statistics, putting INTTRA at 5X above the industry rate.

In addition, INTTRA tracked a record 427 million container status events in 2016 through its Track & Trace service, the world’s largest source of container tracking information and the foundation of INTTRA’s growing data analytics business.

“INTTRA played a significant role in 2016 as the rate of technology and digitization accelerated rapidly in the ocean industry. We believe that digitization is now indispensable,” said INTTRA CEO John Fay. “In 2016, INTTRA introduced innovative regulatory compliance and data analytics products, and also strengthened its industry leading platform, expanded its network and improved customer experience.”

Mr. Fay added, “The changes in ocean shipping over the past twelve months show that the digital divide is widening and the path to success in ocean shipping is combining the best of digitization with a strong physical network. This trend will continue and INTTRA is committed to helping our customers achieve this synergy with innovative solutions that leverage the technologies of today and tomorrow.”
