Ocean carrier Maersk Line has launched an e-commerce service in collaboration with GT Nexus.

Maersk Line customers who use GT Nexus are now able to conduct paperless business transactions and exchange electronic bookings and bill of lading instructions directly with the carrier through the GT Nexus cloud supply chain platform.

Danny Danford, head of e-business integration solutions at Maersk Line, says: “We make every effort to provide our customers with the technology, services and support they need to run efficient, agile global supply chains. A number of our customers use GT Nexus as their core supply chain operating platform and we are able to support them by being a certified carrier on that network.”

GT Nexus president John Urban adds: “Maersk Line recognises that shippers put a premium on advanced technology and expect their carriers to support them on the solution of their choice. Customers are working to simplify their interactions with partners through automation. Maersk Line is now part of our network, and we welcome them to our growing community of providers.”
