How TIMOCOM helps forwarders solve typical challenges
Find tenders for recurring transports
Offer freight or vehicle space on our freight exchange
Vehicle tracking – a win-win situation
By sharing your vehicles' GPS data with your customers, they know where their goods are at all times. Not only does this build trust. It also helps you keep track of your shipments.
Get the exact route to your destination and calculate the exact costs
Route planning and calculation is often a challenge. Different types of vehicles, restrictions on heavy goods vehicles as well as toll roads all have an impact on the route and thus also on the transport costs. With TIMOCOM, you can determine the route of the respective trip directly from a freight offer, transport order or a tender and calculate the resulting travel and ancillary costs.
Manage transport orders centrally and digitally
Centralised data collection and digital management of all transport orders allows you to communicate easily and in real time with all your business partners in 27 languages. It improves the efficiency of your processes by reducing paper-based work, eliminating misunderstandings and duplicate entries. You have access to all relevant information at all times, enabling you to make decisions faster and share them with your business partners.
Over 53,000 customers in our international network already rely on TIMOCOM

To give our customers the level of security they expect, companies wishing to work with the system must meet certain requirements. Access to the marketplace is usually only possible after a company has been in business for 6 months. Before the contract is concluded, certain business documents are checked – this varies depending on the type of company. How quickly you have access to the marketplace depends on how quickly you submit the required documents and on the current requests. Access can be granted in a matter of days. No IT system changes are required.
The monthly flat rate for the use of the TIMOCOM Marketplace depends on the number of users, the minimum contract period and the payment cycle. Select the right offer for your company in our shop and start optimising your transport and logistics processes today.
