June 30, 2020 – Brussels/Paris– Alpega TMS and Shippeo have partnered to deliver a new solution offering combining Alpega’s transport management system with Shippeo’s visibility solution to help shippers boost supply chain transparency and transform their logistics flow capabilities.
With visibility playing an increasingly essential role in transportation management, the Alpega TMS and Shippeo partnership enables increased levels of operational excellence for shippers, providing critical tracking milestones and the ability to better measure and improve their transportation management processes.
Shippeo’s platform complements Alpega TMS by gathering real-time information on multimodal transportation flows in over 60 countries with a strong focus on road and maritime. It offers best-in-market estimated time of arrival (ETA) accuracy and reliability thanks to a sophisticated algorithm developed in-house, which is fully integrated with Alpega’s solution.
As part of Alpega’s partner ecosystem, this collaboration strengthens Alpega’s growing portfolio of innovative solutions for transport management challenges. As the European leader for real-time transportation visibility, Shippeo was a natural fit with Alpega for the partnership, leveraging the combined strengths of two top-tier solutions.
"We are thrilled to partner globally with Alpega at a time when Shippeo is experiencing substantial growth and momentum here in Europe. We're convinced that the future of transportation will rely on deeper and more advanced integrations between TMS systems and real-time transportation visibility solutions. Alpega is a key player in Europe where both organizations have already celebrated joint successes with a variety of customers. We're very excited to take this collaboration to the next level" said Lucien Besse, Co-founder & COO of Shippeo regarding the partnership.
