Transporeon Visibility Hub is the perfect match to achieve our goal of a fully transparent process from order to delivery.

Logistics Manager UK, Knauf UK

Transporeon's truck border crossing times map is used by thousands of professionals in the industry. I am sure it will help create the necessary visibility, drive better operational decisions and contribute to addressing congestions. All this is required to ensure product availability on the shelf despite the challenges of COVID-19.

Sergiy Yablonskiy

Senior Product Manager for Transportation, Nestlé

Transporeon’s Dynamic time slots project will enable us to make full use of all real-time data. A dedicated algorithm is able to automatically check and detect deliveries with a delayed estimated time of arrival (ETA) and switch booked time slots with trucks which are already on site. This dynamic adaptation will allow us to utilize the available resources within the plants in the best possible way.
