The DTTN is a community platform that connects organisations in the trade, logistics and financial industries enabling them to exchange business documents electronically with their trading partners.
The existence of a community e-platform with defined standards and protocols will attract and software vendors to develop value added services which will further improve user operational efficiency.
The DTTN includes nine major communities:
- Buyers / Importers
- Sellers / Exporters
- Freight forwarders including third party logistics service providers
- Carriers / Portals (e.g. Inttra, GTNexus, Traxon)
- Government and its agencies
- Banks and financial institutions
- Insurance companies
- Inspection agencies
The DTTN will co-exist with and complement offerings provided by Application Service Providers (ASPs), Software Vendors and global service providers. It will help to promote a greater take up of e-business in the region to the ultimate benefit of the commercial sectors.
