Erkrath, 2015-01-05 - If an additional freight is needed the chance you pass by the freight exchange platform of TimoCom is very high. This also happened to the Franco-German freight forwarding company Kleyling with two independent headquarters in Breisach, Germany, and Algolsheim, France. Kleyling has been a customer of the market leader among the European freight exchanges for 12 years and has been using the potential of the online platform TC Truck&Cargo® since the very beginning. With TC Truck&Cargo planners find countless international freight and vehicle offers. As a member of ASTRE they use the internal platform of the European association within TC Truck&Cargo.
The French freight forwarding company Kleyling is a family business with more than 70 vehicles and 42 years of experience. Together with air and sea transports, they offer a wide range of international transports and logistic services. To optimise capacity utilisation planners use TimoCom's international offer of freight and vehicles on a regular basis. Thierry Leidemer, general director, knows why he went for TimoCom's procurement platforms: "TimoCom was one of the first freight exchange platforms not only for us but also in Germany. The excellent value for money made it possible to us to find freight and offer vehicles in Germany and Europe. Thanks to the numerous offerings we were able to gain a foothold on the German and East-European markets and also avoid empty runs. As a member of ASTRE we use the association's exchange within TC Truck&Cargo ® to quickly find tailor-made offers for us."
Security is another advantage
Security is a decisive issue for Leidemer: "In our business we have to react quickly and find trustworthy business partners. This is very easy with TimoCom because they do a check on providers before giving them access to the platform. In the worst case they have a debt collection department to help us collect unpaid amounts. Luckily we have not being in need of the service but it is nice to know there is someone ready to help. Being registered at TimoCom helps us to develop and improve. Furthermore, it establishes trust with potential business partners. We have a high standard of quality which supports acquiring new customers."
TimoCom's Chief Representative Marcel Frings is also very happy that Kleyling has been using their freight exchange platform for those many years: "Companies as Kleyling prove to us that we are on the right track. We want to support the user in every way in order to make their daily routine easier, e.g. a mobile access is now available to our programmes. We aim to stay number one provider to Kleyling."
