INTTRA is an electronic marketplace serving the ocean shipping industry. It creates integrated solutions for ocean shipping by connecting shipping professionals with carriers and software companies. About three million container orders are initiated on INTTRA’s platform every month, approximately 27 percent of global ocean container trade.[1]


INTTRA was founded in 2001 by a consortium of the world’s ocean shipping participants to accelerate development of technology standards and software in the industry.[2] INTTRA’s platform digitized processes around Container Booking, Shipping Instructions, Container Tracking and included searches for sailings, electronic bills of lading and electronic invoicing.[3] In 2010 ABS Capital Partners took a majority stake in the portal, to develop new electronic commerce services for new markets.[4][5]

The company has survived a difficult trading period following the financial downturn[6] not helped by changing regulations.[7]

In 2015, INTTRA raised additional funds from ABS and other shareholders to support its next stage of development.[8]
