Alpega Group’s US Business Up 345%

November 11, 2019

VIENNA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 11, 2019--

Alpega Group, the leading provider of cloud-based, end-to-end transportation management software in Europe, today announced that its North American business closed Q3 for the year-to-date, up 345% compared to the same period the previous year.

Alpega’s Managing Director for North America, Mark McArthur said: “This year we expanded our product portfolio and go-to-market strategy to better support businesses in North America. Alpega’s unique ability to provide SaaS solutions for companies with transportation processes ranging from low to high-end complexity, offers the flexibility to start with a simple, tactical Transportation Management System (TMS) and expand to a highly strategic system as required.”

The TMS and freight exchange markets where Alpega operates are undergoing a step change in digital transformation. Technology can now connect and route road, rail, sea and air transportation with unprecedented efficiency.

In addition to helping companies save hundreds of millions in transport costs, Alpega makes sustainability actionable. Smart routing functionality enables companies to reduce their carbon footprint by ensuring full trucks on return as well as outbound trips.

“As the market matures, we are seeing customers reach the limits of what they can achieve with their initial first generation TMS tools,” explains Todd DeLaughter, Group CEO for Alpega. “Alpega not only scales from simple to complex transportation networks, but also leverages the data from our freight exchange marketplace to offer unique insights to both shippers and carriers about optimal routes and processes.”
