Taking digitalisation to the next level for shippers and carriers
GEFCO has acquired Chronotruck, a company that connects shippers and carriers through an innovative digital platform. This acquisition supports GEFCO’s strategy of leveraging new technologies to enhance customer experience and offering fully digitalised services to meet the needs of current and future logistics ecosystems.
Launched in 2016, Chronotruck’s ambition is to offer the best platform for businesses to order shipments, while reducing empty journeys for carriers. For businesses, Chronotruck offers access to nearby carriers and an innovative portfolio of digitalised services, including an instant quotation system, geotracking, proof of delivery and e-invoicing. For carriers, the digital platform offers an opportunity to optimise flows by taking nearby loads to ensure trucks can run at full capacity. To date, Chronotruck has served more than 9,000 customers.
GEFCO brings solid know-how in high-volume and integrated logistics, while Chronotruck provides agility, technical knowledge and accessibility to boost innovation throughout the customer journey. Chronotruck will remain an independent entity and brand within GEFCO.
At present, Chronotruck mainly operates in France but the Company will look forward to leveraging GEFCO’s powerful network, strong geographical presence and access to new customers, from consumer goods to industrial manufacturers.
