The new, combined group, says a joint statement, “will offer customers a worldwide cloud-platform for intelligent transport logistics and best-in-class multi-modal freight procurement solutions, both combined with unparalleled and real time insight into transport market dynamics.”

 

TIM Consult was founded in Germany in 1995 and provides business logistics consultancy, market intelligence and procurement services on a global basis, across all transport modes and industry verticals.

 

“By adding the portfolio of TIM Consult to the Transporeon Group platform, customers will be able to benefit from new high-quality market intelligence products and consultancy services, as well as faster access to innovative big data applications. TIM Consult will benefit from access to the extensive network of the Transporeon, Mercareon and Ticontract platforms, expanding its data-driven business model.”

 

Martin Mack, CTO and Managing Partner of the Transporeon Group, stated: “Tens of thousands of transport orders are assigned via our cloud-based platforms every day and around €10B worth of freight tenders are carried out every year. In these customer relationships, there is an enormous untapped potential. Together with TIM Consult, we can provide our customers with an even more comprehensive and wider portfolio of consulting services and products, whilst further optimizing our solution.”

 

Björn Klippel, Managing Partner/CEO and Founder of TIM Consult GmbH, said: “As a part of Transporeon, we are significantly expanding our reach and gain access to the company’s first-class IT-expertise. Through the pooling of our efforts and know-how, we can offer our customers a variety of innovative services and tools worldwide.”

 

Following the takeover, TIM Consult will be 100% part of the Transporeon Group, but will continue to operate as an independent business, retaining its two offices in Mannheim, Germany and New York City, USA. TIM Consult’s separate business units “Warehousing and Intra-Logistics” and “Waste Management” will continue to operate as independent entities, pursuing their development strategies with their specialized teams.

 

Björn Klippel becomes shareholder of the Transporeon Group and remains Managing Director of TIM Consult. Oliver Kahrs will be appointed as additional Managing Director of TIM Consult; he has been with Transporeon since 2008, currently as Director Strategic Initiatives.
