China Shipping Container Lines (CSCL), the world’s 6th largest ocean container shipping company, has selected GT Nexus as its preferred industry portal for e-commerce services. CSCL will fully integrate its back office systems to GT Nexus to enable complete paperless business transactions with major shipper and forwarder customers.
Huang Xiaowen, GM and executive director of CSCL, said, ‘In the containerized shipping industry, e-commerce has matured to the point where it is now a vital part of a carrier’s value-added services. GT Nexus has succeeded in delivering a proven solution’.
GT Nexus and CSCL have worked together for several years. Now, users of GT Nexus will have the ability to submit bookings and shipping instructions electronically to CSCL, which effectively digitizes the entire shipper-carrier transactional process.
The GT Nexus trade and logistics portal combines two things — 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 standardized interface to exchange business information with thousands of global customers.
Cloud Computer Journal reports that China Shipping Lines has a fleet of 157 container vessels with an operating capacity of 491,276 TEUs, and operated dozens of domestic coastal routes and international routes between China and Japan, Korea, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Australia, Mediterranean Sea, USA, Europe and other destinations.
The company network covers the main ports of China, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia.
More than any other carrier, CSCL calls 12 China base ports, plus most river ports along the Yangtze River, the Pearl River and their branches, providing fast, safe, and economical transportation for all containerized freight.
