China Shipping Container Lines (CSCL), the ocean container shipping company, today has chosen GT Nexus as its preferred industry portal for e-commerce services.
CSCL will integrate its back office systems to GT Nexus to enable paperless business transactions with major shipper and forwarder customers. “In the containerised shipping industry, e-commerce has matured to the point where it is now a vital part of a carrier’s value-added services,” said executive director Huang Xiaowen.
The GT Nexus trade and logistics portal combines strategic business applications and a network of carriers, 3PLs and suppliers. All services are delivered on-demand, over the web, which allows customers to get up and running quickly and cost effectively. Carriers integrate to the GT Nexus portal once and then use that single standardise interface to exchange business information with thousands of global customers.
