March 4, 2019

NEW YORK, March 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Youredi, a managed data integration service provider, today announced a cooperation with Kontainers, an enterprise SaaS provider for Shipping Lines, Freight Forwarders, OTI’s & NVOCC’s. The agreement calls for Youredi to provide data integrations through which Kontainers can seamlessly connect its products with the customers’ applications.

Kontainers empowers all shipping brands to go digital in the easiest way possible by offering own branded customizable client facing execution platforms.

Youredi allows Kontainers to focus on the development of the core product while speeding up the adoption and deployment of Kontainers EDGE solution.
