Belgium E2open company Avantida has partnered with shipping line ZIM to offer street turn services in the United States via the Avantida platform.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}ZIM, the second shipping line to offer this service to US transporters, joins Maersk, who introduced the Avantida platform to the US and Canada last month.

Avantida’s platform facilitates empty container triangulation, or the reuse of an import container for an export booking (street turn). This fully digital process offered by ZIM provides dispatchers and planners requesting street turns with an accurate, reliable response and reduces time, transport costs and CO2 emissions as truck miles are reduced.

Avantida launched in the US and Canada less than a month ago and has welcomed over 130 transport and logistics companies to its platform.

Luc De Clerck, CEO, Avantida, commented: "We are quickly gaining traction in the US. The partnerships with Maersk and now ZIM reflect the market's eagerness to embrace the Avantida platform. We hope to soon offer the transport community in the US a central hub for requesting optimisations to all major shipping lines."

“We have a successful partnership with Avantida in Europe, and are sure the platform will provide great opportunities to the transporters in the US who are seeking to optimise their container transport planning, while reducing their carbon footprint,” said Gil Lehman, ZIM US VP Logistics.

Ronen Meroz, ZIM global intermodal manager, added: “The cooperation is part of ZIM’s ongoing effort to introduce new advanced platforms for the benefit of our vendors and customers.”{/mprestriction}
