Avantida has announced that Hapag-Lloyd has become the first ocean carrier in the UK to offer its reUse container management services through the Avantida platform.
The application allows the re-use of import containers for export shipments of the same shipping company.
“As part of the ocean lines continuous efforts to improve their services and align with their corporate policies, Hapag-Lloyd in the UK has joined 13 European ocean lines that have already adopted the Avantida platform, which streamlines all requests with regard to container re-use and drop-off or pick-up changes, said Luc De Clerck, CEO, Avantida. Expanding into the UK is a natural next step for Avantida as we continue to build upon our success in mainland Europe, where we just registered our 450,000 approved re-use on the platform.”
In a message to its truckers, Hapag-Lloyd noted that utilising the Avantida portal will “better control and manage our equipment stock”.
“‘Avantida allows us to manage our container re-use requests in an improved and efficient way, and provides our hauliers with a platform that simplifies the request process, and speeds up response times,” said Andrew Allen, Operations Director, Hapag-Lloyd (UK).
