A global expert in supply chain solutions and a leader in automotive logistics, the GEFCO Group has announced the acquisition of Chronotruck, which connects senders and transporters with an innovative digital platform. This acquisition supports GEFCO's strategy of leveraging new technologies to enhance the customer experience and providing fully digitized services to meet the needs of both existing and future logistics ecosystems.
Chronotruck, which started its operations in 2016, aims to provide the best transportation demand platform for businesses and to prevent the transporters from traveling on vacations. Chronotruck offers an innovative portfolio of businesses with access to the nearest shipping company and a diverse range of digital services. These services include instant pricing, location tracking, delivery receipt and e-invoicing. For the transporters, the digital platform offers the opportunity to optimize the flows by taking nearby loads. This allows trucks to operate at full capacity. To date, Chronotruck has provided services to more than a thousand 9 customers.
While GEFCO demonstrates its high volume and high know-how in integrated logistics, Chronotruck provides speed, technical knowledge and availability and supports innovation throughout the customer experience. Chronotruck will continue to exist as an independent organization and brand within GEFCO.
N We are pleased to include Chronotruck employees and innovative solutions in GEFCO's growing, flexible and intelligent services portfolio, Luc said Luc Nadal, CEO of GEFCO. Chronotruck's expertise will help us make some changes to our customer processes and improve our experience with digitalization. This partnership will also help reduce our environmental footprint by ensuring that trucks run at full capacity. ”
Ol This is a great opportunity for Chronotruck, Rod said Rodolphe Allard, CEO of Chronotruck. Today, Chronotruck operates mainly in France, but we look forward to adding even more value to GEFCO's strong network and strong geographical presence, and to gain access to new customers, from consumer products to industrial manufacturers. I believe this merger will create a power source for businesses and carriers that add real value to their work. ”
