Nocom´s Tradevision and INTTRA Announce Alliance to Deliver Multi-Modal Logistics Services - INTTRA-LINK adds ocean freight capabilities to leading provider of air cargo services - STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN & PARSIPPANY, NJ - July 24, 2001 - Tradevision (, a global provider of EDI and communication services for air cargo management, and INTTRA (, the leading provider of B2B ocean freight services, today announced an alliance that will enable Tradevision to enhance its air services portfolio by directly connecting with INTTRA's ocean transportation network infrastructure. Tradevision's Logistics Management System, LogiMan, will soon provide the ability for freight forwarders to monitor shipments across air and water simultaneously. Today, LogiMan enables its network of logistics service providers to send and receive booking, track and trace, and other pertinent air cargo container messages. By leveraging INTTRA's network of leading ocean carriers and INTTRA-LINK, a transportation network infrastructure designed to supercharge the ocean transport function for existing enterprise software by providing connectivity and standardized access to multiple carriers, the enhanced LogiMan will deliver greater product functionality and improved customer service to LogiMan users. Ken Bloom, Chief Executive of INTTRA said, "Tradevision is widely known as a leader in providing airfreight logistics technology. This partnership extends Tradevisions' service offerings while also extending INTTRA's reach to more than 700 freight forwarders who are, of course, a critical constituency in any logistics portal." Now Tradevision customers may seamlessly gain access to INTTRA functionality without exiting the Tradevision application and regardless of individual in- house systems, protocols or formats. Allan Harsbo, Senior Vice President of Tradevision said, "We are truly excited about our alliance with INTTRA. Adding sea freight to our services enables us to provide enhanced one-stop shopping options for our forwarding customers. While only about three percent of the world's cargo volumes are taken by air, ocean transport represents over 80 percent. Because of our alliance with INTTRA, Tradevision is now a truly multi-modal supplier. Regardless of transport mode, all shipments can now be automatically monitored." In addition to INTTRA-LINK, INTTRA's suite of products includes INTTRA- ACT, the B2B Web-hosted portal that standardizes and supports door-to- door ocean transport services for customers of participating carriers.
