Data2Logistics global expansion increases in Europe

Fort Myers-based global freight bill advisor and processor, Data2Logistics has expanded its operations in Europe. Included in Data2Logistics’s European expansion are Jos van der Meulen and Johan Kool as business development managers in the Benelux region, Reinhold Säckl as country manager in Germany and Peter Hodgson as country manager in the UK. Each will be presenting Data2Logistics’ transportation cost-savings portfolio of freight bill auditing, processing payment and advisory services to companies that ship their products to, from and throughout Europe. Using actionable information from their data mining and reporting tools, clients are able to identify savings, as well as improve negotiations and quality of service with air, LTL, TL, parcel, overnight express, ocean and rail carriers.

Data2Logistics assists Global 1000, Fortune 1000 and SMB companies to reduce their shipping costs by providing an outsourced opportunity to efficiently process, audit account code and pay their freight at a significantly lower cost than internal processes, while also identifying more carrier overcharges than internal systems. The company provides actionable information to better manage and control transportation cost, and supports clients with their carrier bid preparation, benchmarking, proposal analysis and negotiation for all modes on a global basis. As a single source of information, Data2Logistics seeks to identify opportunities for savings, report the reasons for variances, and determine and relay trends and changes in modal shifts, shipment lanes, carrier utilization, shipment size, accessorial cost, and costs per kilometer or mile. Reviewing more than $15 billion worth of freight bills from thousands of carriers annually, the company offers a single-source solution for all modes of freight. ¦
