What’s next on the exporting table?
To create a matchmaking logistics platform, the EU Commission reached out to logistics players like Transporeon. As the leading transportation management platform and provider of transportation visibility, we feel honored to participate in such an important project. By offering real-time visibility, freight procurement, and execution capabilities, we’re helping connect different stakeholders and optimize transportation processes. Our mission is to bring transportation in sync with the world, so we’re always keen to invest our expertise in worthwhile initiatives such as the Ukraine solidarity lanes. We must also thank our community and their eagerness to help: in total, more than 200 shippers and carriers registered on our platform.
While it seems like the situation has relaxed after ports opened again, we should not forget the harvest yet to come. Due to delays in shipments over the Black Sea, providing grain to the world is still a challenge. Thus, working together closely and matching needs for transport services with logistics professionals should stay a focus in the current crisis. Additionally, the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine leaves uncertainty over port openings in the future. In order to finish off the harvesting season smoothly, Ukraine still relies on logistical support. Every logistics professional who has free capacities is encouraged to register through our platform and to offer their services to Ukrainian suppliers. Together, we can move the remaining 50 million tons of produce.
Even though inland transportation is more complex, we can connect grain and wheat suppliers to logistics professionals that offer the best capacities and can ship goods for comparable prices to the waterway. This opens new possibilities for Ukrainian shippers, now and in the future. Our platform does not just help connect logistics professionals, it also enables to detect the best possible transportation options and provides agility in crises such as the current. Thus, building trustworthy connections now is also an investment in the future.
