Global eTrade Services adds Pacific International Lines on CALISTA™

Global eTrade Services (GeTS), a global trade platform company and a subsidiary of CrimsonLogic (a provider of digital solutions, products and services), has announced the addition of Pacific International Lines (PIL) – the world’s top 10th containership operator on CALISTA™, an interoperable, neutral and trusted platform that enables supply chain orchestration across the world.

Shippers and freight forwarders on CALISTA™ will be able to book freight for feeder services covering Sub-Continent and South East and/or liner services from New Zealand and Australia to the Pacific Islands. Users can also tap on PIL’s access to the other parts of the world including Africa, America, Middle East, Asia and Oceania with ease. Lastly, with the linkages to 26 Customs nodes across the world connecting to 176,000 parties, users will be able to file manifest, manage and exchange trade data and documents for seamless G2B trade compliance activities across countries.
