Ocean Carrier to Use Trade and Logistics Portal as Industry eCommerce Gateway

OAKLAND, CA and HONG KONG--(Marketwire - November 11, 2009) - GT Nexus today announced that it has been selected by Emirates Shipping Line to provide transactional e-commerce services for the carrier's global customers. The ocean carrier will integrate its back office systems with the portal to enable Web-based paperless business transactions with shipper and forwarder customers around the world.

"We recognize that our customers put a premium on advanced technology," said Romi Kaushal, CEO of Emirates Shipping Line.
