International e-platform for box handling is growing
The Israeli shipping line Zim has teamed up with Avantida to offer street turn services in the USA. Avantida's platform facilitates empty container triangulation, or the reuse of an import container for an export booking (street turn).
This fully digital process not only provides dispatchers and planners requesting street turns, it also reduces time, transport costs and CO2 emissions as well as truck kilometres.
The Avantida platform is active in North America, Mexico and Europe, counts over 4,000 registered companies and facilitates some 2,000 transactions a day. (ben)
