Besides the extension of the exclusive agreement with the Teleroute freight exchange, WKTS goes further in its collaboration with Norbert Dentressangle, providing them new tools and services tailored to their needs.
Brussels, January 22, 2014 - After several years of successful collaboration, Wolters Kluwer Transport Services (WKTS) announces the continuation of its agreement with Norbert Dentressangle, the international transportation, logistics and freight forwarding company. Both companies just signed a new contract to, on the one hand, extend by two years the posting of Norbert Dentressangle’s European freight offers on the Teleroute freight exchange with exclusivity on the French market, and to evaluate on the other hand the business modules of Transwide, another brand of WTKS offering "on demand" transport management solution. Thus, WKTS entered a new phase in its collaboration with Norbert Dentressangle to support the continuous optimisation of their transport management processes, including in particular their freight management in Europe.
With this new contract, Teleroute, the European freight exchange, continues to work with Norbert Dentressangle until 2017. The Teleroute application is directly linked to Norbert Dentressangle’s IT system to receive and manage all their European freight posting offers on a daily basis, without the need for users to enter data a second time/for double data entry. It thus ensures many benefits for Norbert Dentressangle in terms of time, efficiency, accuracy and safety. In addition to that, Norbert Dentressangle has the possibility to test the flagship SaaS solution of Transwide: twSlot, a planning appointment module already praised by many companies in the manufacturing, distribution and logistics industries.
Fabrice Maquignon, CEO of Wolters Kluwer Transport Services, said: "We are excited to continue our collaboration with Norbert Dentressangle on our freight exchange and to accompany them on new business needs. This contract extension demonstrates the quality and relevance of our group’s services and solutions, which go well beyond freight exchange, in order to always bring more productivity and efficiency to our customers during a challenging economy.
