XLP members will benefit from access to the full ShipNext platform for a year, including features such as the trading desk, cargo and fleet monitor, port information, freight calculator, and more.

ShipNext’s platform aims to cut through information overload caused by high volumes of email. It combines e-mail processing powered by natural language processing (NLP), machine learning, and AI, with its shipping platform. This integration enables freight search, freight tendering, trade facilitation and workflow automation, the company said.
