All of TIMOCOM is united by a common vision for the future of logistics. As a FreightTech company, we believe in a world without logistical challenges. We have therefore made it our mission to make logistics smart, safe and simple. We call this future: Augmented Logistics. Augmented Logistics is also our promise. We understand it to mean an extension, reinforcement, enhancement and improvement in logistics. For our customers, this means that they can solve their logistical challenges with TIMOCOM in a smart, safe and simple manner.
Our success story
The need for innovative solutions is what drives us; what has always driven us. In April 1997, freight forwarder Jens Thierman was searching for a pan-European procurement platform for transport jobs. But he could not find what he was looking for – so he decided to build it himself! The result was the Timocom Soft- und Hardware GmbH. After work and on the weekends, the company began developing its own freight and vehicle exchange. What began as a bold idea back then has today turned into one of the most successful IT and data specialists for the European transport and logistics industry. In 2018, TimoCom Soft- und Hardware GmbH changed their name to TIMOCOM GmbH.
As the pioneer and guide for European logistics networking, we are offering Europe’s first Smart Logistics System, with up to 800,000 freight and vehicle space offers uploaded and processed daily. Our neutral network consisting of over 45,000 verified companies is also part of the system. This neutrality is an important advantage, as the transactions can be concluded directly between the contract partners.
Due to our specialisation and internationality, today over 500 employees from more than 30 countries are working both at our German headquarters in Erkrath, close to Düsseldorf, and the representative offices in Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary. The company founder Jens Thiermann is at the helm, working in cooperation with his son, Tim Thiermann, combining long standing management experience with new perspectives as the family run company moves forward. Together, we can already look back at many successful corporate milestones.
