Transporeon, one of the leading companies for cloud-based transport logistics in Europe, has entered into an exclusive collaboration agreement with real-time-visibility provider Sixfold. Together, the partners wish to expand their market share in real-time shipment tracking.
Transporeon is a specialist in software-as-a-service solutions (SaaS) for transport assignment and time slot management. The company’s cloud platform connects over 1,000 industrial and commercial shippers with approximately 90,000 transportation service providers in one of the world’s largest logistics networks. Transporeon is cooperating with Sixfold to optimally meet requirements for transport tracking and calculation of expected arrival times (ETA). The visibility specialist integrates with carrier fleets, primarily through a direct connection with connected trucks’ telematics systems.
Thanks to this cooperation with Sixfold, schedulers of industrial and commercial shippers only have to log onto one platform to assign shipments, book time slots and track deliveries in real time, which is unique to the European market.“Expansion of our portfolio also increases the attractiveness of the Transporeon platform for carriers. They can flexibly choose the best solution for real-time tracking of trucks and control all activities over the Transporeon platform,” explains Marc-Oliver Simon, co-founder and CEO of the Transporeon Group.

In its first market overview in November 2018, Gartner, the renowned research and advisory firm, listed the company as a “representative vendor” among the providers of real-time visibility solutions. “We congratulate Sixfold on this success. This rating confirms that our strategic partner offers one of the best solutions for current challenges in the logistics market. Sixfold has standardised best-practice solutions and processes that ideally support our growth goals,” Simon continues.
Transporeon customers convinced by Sixfold’s real time visibility
DEUTSCHE ROCKWOOL is an international company in the building materials industry and a pioneer in the field of visibility. The specialist for mineral wool insulation materials already tracks its shipments on the Transporeon platform using the interface to its carriers’ telematics systems. “Now we can track the entire supply chain, from pick-up at the factory to unloading. All information is available in real time, without the need for the driver to give status reports. We can’t get current data any more accurately, quickly and easily,” says Jens Püttmann, Manager of Logistics, Germany at DEUTSCHE ROCKWOOL.
