Transporeon commits to digitizing supply chains the world over with a comprehensive and end-to-end platform for transportation management and execution
At Transporeon we’ve always been proud to do things a little differently. While the market is accustomed to solutions focusing on business logic first, we forged a different path. We instead built a comprehensive shipper-carrier network with Transportation Management functionality integrated into it.
That’s why we’ve recently spent more than €70M in bringing deeper innovation to this approach to freight management and execution by developing the world’s most advanced Transportation Management Platform. In combining the existing capabilities of Transporeon with Sixfold and TNX with the new solutions of Nexogen, Supplystack and Logit One we can now offer shippers, carriers and retailers a comprehensive platform that supercharges their transportation processes.
The modern world economy is digitally connected and for too long the logistics industry has lagged behind. In many cases, shippers, carriers and retailers execute thousands of business critical loads without digital support. They still rely on gut feelings and past experience instead of data for decision making, which causes some big problems. For one it means that they can't proactively deal with incidents or unforeseen situations as they occur. The lack of digitized communication chains also leads to entirely preventable process breaks, misunderstandings, delays and other disruptions.
This dependency on analogue operations in logistics has led to substantial waste and missed opportunities. We estimate that empty runs, idle capacity, waiting times and inefficient planning & execution make up approximately 30% of all waste in global transportation processes. In just the European FTL market alone, this translates to roughly €60bn p.a., and that doesn't even take into account the ecological damage caused by unnecessarily high CO2 emissions. There is no doubt that alternative sources of energy, autonomous driving and other even more infrastructure-dependent technologies will help us to tackle these issues. There is however no need to wait for these technologies to become available on a broader scale. With an adequate digitization of processes, we can tackle all the issues and challenges mentioned before right away. So why wait?
Transporeon’s Transportation Management Platform lets you solve these problems in a way fit for the 21st century. We have created a modular, agnostic, digital platform that increases your interoperability with other supply chain partners in the market, based on data and real-time insights.
Our modular approach allows all logistics companies to select from a wide range of products according to their business needs. If your business-critical area is yard management, but you already have real-time visibility handled, then we want to help you seamlessly adopt a solution that solves that problem. Without any need to adopt unnecessary solutions. If you as a shipper deploy a fully fledged TMS system that fully optimizes your transports, you can easily connect and execute your transport flows over the largest community of carriers with full digital support. If your ERP system produces deliveries and shipments, you can use our services to define transports and select the best carrier for your execution. Whomever you are, whatever freight problem you have, we will find a fast and efficient way to connect to your processes and help you bridge into the digital world of transport execution.
Our platform is also designed to give you the confidence in making decisions that build resilience or fuel growth. By offering a data-driven approach we can help you understand and use your data to make decisions more sensibly. We want to strengthen that position further by giving you real-time access to industry market intelligence and benchmarking to improve your competitive advantage. All our processes run on real-time data and visibility. This keeps supply chains flexible and agile, empowering all users to adapt and respond to on-the-ground events as they happen in a proactive way.
Nestlé faced many of these same problems. Before Transporeon, they were reliant on analogue processes and technologies like emails and Excels to manage incredibly complex operations. With a single platform to cover transport assignment, slot booking, RTV, costs and freight settlement they were able to deliver real returns. This included freight cost savings, seamless communications with hauliers, and a better customer service experience.
The Transporeon Transportation Management Platform is fully equipped to meet modern supply chain needs. Our robust capabilities include, market intelligence, freight procurement, matchmaking & transport execution, dock scheduling, yard management & visibility. To further support this 360° approach to transport procurement and execution, we also provide settlement, payment and audit capabilities. All of this is fully deployable across the globe for continent-spanning multi-modal coverage that can handle any load.
With over 1300 industrial shippers, more than 100 large retailers, and more than 130,000 carriers on our digital freight platform, we are driven to provide industry best digital process efficiency in logistics. Our goal is to help all stakeholders to see benefits in their sustainability, resilience, innovations and growth. At Transporeon, we are bringing your transportation in sync with the world.
