by Jon Knox

GT Nexus has been selected by Independent Container Line (ICL) to provide transactional e-commerce services to global customers through the GT Nexus Trade and Logistics Portal. ICL will integrate its back office systems with the Portal to enable Web-based paperless business transactions with shipper and forwarder customers around the world.

"ICL recognizes that global customers put a premium on advanced technology," said John Urban, GT Nexus president. "Customers want to simplify their interactions with partners through automation and ICL is now part of our growing carrier network. We welcome them to the GT Nexus community."
