Sixfold and ControlPay have been part of the Transporeon family since September. With Real Time Visibility as well as billing automation and payment analysis, the tow companies supplement the Transporeon portfolio by very efficient services. As we are part of the Transporeon family, our customers will benefit from the expanded portfolio of our parent company in the future.
Sixfold – Data Transparency through Real Time Visibility
After three years of successful cooperation, Transporeon and Sixfold are deepening their collaboration with a merger. The integration of Sixfold’s state-of-the-art RTV technology into Transporeon’s cloud-based platform for transport logistics and thus into Europe’s largest network of shippers and freight forwarders brings important scaling effects.
Sixfold tracks over 500 million euros worth of goods daily in real time and supports its customers in more than 40 countries and 25 European languages. The platform is secure and DSGVO compliant. The scaling of RTV technology across a large network of shippers and carriers enables increased efficiency and reduced costs across the transport industry – ultimately leading to lower CO2 emissions. One in three trucks today still drives empty. Not only does this result in higher transport costs for shippers and carriers, it also causes damage to the environment and increases the overall carbon footprint of the entire industry.
For Transporeon’s customers, the integration of RTV technology and its smooth application represents a significant development in logistics management. Until August 31, 2021 Transporeon will cover all necessary costs for its customers – after that date Transporeon commits to continue to invest and offer competitive prices for RTV technology.
Stephan Sieber, CEO of Transporeon, comments on the merger as follows: “We need to remove upfront barriers. We’re serious about creating data transparency for all and combining visibility with execution will enable our customers to continuously improve their operations and open a whole new set of innovation potentials to all of us! “
ControlPay – Optimized Freight Invoicing Process
ControlPay, Europe’s leading provider of freight verification and payment processing, has also been part of the family since September. The service offering with its true “end-to-end” solutions is a logical complement to Transporeon’s existing portfolio of market intelligence, freight purchasing, freight benchmarking and tendering, transport allocation and processing, time slot booking, shipment tracking and end-to-end supply chain visibility.
Founded in 2002, ControlPay is today active for its customers from various industries worldwide. These include in particular the automotive, heavy, consumer goods and pharmaceutical industries as well as the health care sector. ControlPay optimizes the freight billing process for both shippers and carriers. Through its platform, ControlPay collects critical data across all modes of transport. This gives users a comprehensive and well-founded insight into their logistics processes.
Transporeon’s service offering is aligned along the value chain. With ControlPay, our colleagues from Ulm can now also cover the last processing steps around automated invoicing and the analysis of payment-related data.
Stephan Sieber, CEO of Transporeon, comments the merger as follows: “ControlPay further extends our customer offering to mission-critical areas such as billing automation and payment analysis. It is an ideal complement to our service portfolio in tendering and sourcing, transport execution with real-time visibility, market intelligence and settlement. For ControlPay’s customers, as well as its highly qualified workforce, we are committed to continued delivery of ControlPays’s world-class service!”
