Brussels, 11th January 2018 – Alpega, the leading global logistics software company, has completed the acquisition of TenderEasy AB, Stockholm, effective December 31st 2017.
Alpega was formed in 2017 and offers end-to-end solutions covering all transport needs. Its suite of products includes Transport Management Services (TMS) Transwide, Inet and TAS-tms, and Freight Exchanges Teleroute, BursaTransport and 123Cargo.
TenderEasy strategically broadens the product portfolio and geographic reach of the Alpega Group. While the TenderEasy solution will remain available as a standalone service, it will also be technically integrated with Transwide which will significantly increase the value to both Alpega and TenderEasy customers and provide a seamless user experience across multiple products.
The TenderEasy solution enriches Transwide’s offering by optimizing the tendering process for both buyers and sellers of freight. Consolidated with Transwide TMS, it creates an advanced and userfriendly procurement suite spanning the entire “source-to-pay” lifecycle on a single web-based platform. Through the integrated TenderEasy tool, users can search and analyze Alpega’s unique 50,000+ carrier database, issue Requests for Quotation and use powerful algorithms to optimize and analyze the results, thus ensuring the best possible service and price combinations.
As a result, Transwide TMS is able to support the complete procurement lifecycle from pre-tender data analysis and supplier management to automated carrier allocation and freight audit. These are vital steps in ensuring agreed rates are applied, and users achieve the actual savings projected by the tender outcome.
In particular, TenderEasy’s freight tendering software solution is a perfect fit for Transwide’s customer base across many verticals and geographies. The acquisition comes a year after Transwide first partnered with TenderEasy in December 2016 and the relationship is already aiding Transwide customers with their freight tendering logistics as well as bringing the new business opportunities to Teleroute users.
TenderEasy will continue to be led by CEO and Founder Johan Vagerstam together with CTO and Founder Anders Abjörn, as well as CCO Fredrik Nergell.
“I am delighted to welcome TenderEasy to the Alpega family. I strongly believe that the Transwide and TenderEasy integration will provide an easy-to-use and flexible one-stop-shop to streamline our customer freight procurement process,” said Fabrice Maquignon CEO of Transwide and Teleroute.
The Alpega Group is a leading global logistics software company offering end-to-end solutions that cover all transportation needs, including Transport Management Systems (TMS) and Freight Exchanges.
The Transport Management Systems (TMS) software solutions – inet, Transwide and TAS – connect companies to a broad network of logistics providers and digitise their complex supply chain management. These systems provide live visibility of incoming and outgoing logistics and seamlessly link truck drivers and logistics providers with shippers. The four freight exchanges – Teleroute, Wtransnet, Bursa and 123cargo – serve as marketplaces for matching spot shipments and capacities. TenderEasy, for its part, allows shippers to easily send e-tenders to the carrier community. All of the above solutions can be combined to create more added value for customers.
Our user community is electronically connected every day to successfully manage critical transport processes.
Alpega is present in 80 countries worldwide and employs over 500 people with 31 different nationalities.
