Meet Customers Where They Are

Challenging Trade Environment

As an ocean carrier or NVOCC, your organization is essential for global commerce. Ensuring that goods are moved efficiently, safely and profitably is your responsibility. To do that successfully in today’s challenging trade environment fraught with change, leading carriers rely on e2open’s technology platform and global network capabilities.

Largest Ocean Booking Platform

Since the acquisition of INTTRA in 2019, e2open has continued to grow its carrier base across all modes and regions, adding to a vast ocean carrier network that is still the biggest in the industry. Today, 26% of the world’s ocean transport is booked on the e2open platform, and e2open has visibility into 44% of all containers in motion. We’re pleased to make that claim, and we want to ensure that carriers are receiving optimal value from partnering with us.

Efficiency and Visibility across All Modes, All Regions

The high demand for ocean shipping amplifies the challenges your customers face when attempting to efficiently plan and execute multimode transport bookings. Managing the land side of transport is also important and increasingly difficult, so a single, convenient platform that covers all modes of transportation across all regions is necessary to drive efficiencies and add value for logistics service providers and beneficial cargo owners.

e2open’s transportation management system (TMS) is the industry standard for fast deployment and low cost of ownership. Fully integrated into the e2open platform and network ecosystems, our logistics capabilities support all markets—from small domestic shippers to large enterprises with complex multimode, multi-leg routes around the world.

Proactive Compliance and Efficient Container Management

Any delays—and their associated costs—that are minimized will boost your entire transportation ecosystem. e2open can save you enormous amounts of time by enabling you to establish compliance up front with cargo screening, restricted party screening and risk assessment of ship-to locations. The ability to move containers from ports to production facilities and back more efficiently contributes to solving container shortage challenges. We provide a marketplace for ocean carriers to communicate with trucking companies of all sizes, which helps you save time and money by optimizing container use and transport.
