Seaboard Marine Selects GT Nexus to Provide Industry Transactional eCommerce Services
Seaboard Marine has selected GT Nexus to provide transactional e-commerce services to the carrier’s customers. In addition to e-commerce functionalities already available through its company-sponsored portal, Seaboard will integrate its operational systems to support bookings and shipping instructions for multiple customers through the GT Nexus trade and logistics portal.
All services on the GT Nexus portal are delivered via the software-as-a-service (SaaS) model, which allows customers to get up and running quickly and cost effectively. Carriers integrate to the portal once and then use that single standardised interface to exchange business information with thousands of global customers.
“The ocean transportation industry is rapidly becoming a technology-centric business,” said Bruce Brecheisen, executive vice president, at Seaboard Marine. “We selected GT Nexus because they have essentially become a technology standard for the industry, which will help us better serve our various customers who have already standardised on GT Nexus for ocean freight management.”
