Acquisition of European SaaS transportation software company continues growth

July 10, 2018

Rolling Meadows, Illinois – Logistyx Technologies, developer of parcel transportation management execution (TME) systems, has bought Transparix, a TME software-as-a-service (SaaS) company headquartered in the Netherlands.

“Transparix brings high quality transportation management execution technology, a rich development team and a wealth of industry knowledge to Logistyx,” said Geoffrey Finlay, CEO of Logistyx Technologies.

“Transparix’s technology and talent fold seamlessly into our company’s vision and complement the robust functionality our product family offers to help our customers efficiently ship orders to consumers and businesses across North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.”

Logistyx’s multi-carrier shipping software is being used by manufacturers, distributors, retailers, e-commerce companies, and logistics service providers worldwide.

“We see businesses of all sizes experiencing significant e-commerce growth,” Finlay said.

“Consequently, many are turning to Logistyx to address the increased demand for global fulfillment and the growing volume of parcel shipments they’re now delivering directly to B2B and B2C customers. The Transparix acquisition enhances Logistyx’s ability to address these and other emerging global e-commerce expansion trends and is part of our vision for the future of logistics.”

In business since 2001, Transparix has amassed an impressive roster of clients, including Bosch, Office Depot, Footlocker, ABB, XPO Logistics and many others. The acquisition expands Logistyx’s European footprint, with the Transparix team joining Logistyx and adding to an already talented tech development team.

“Multi-carrier transport management is at the heart of both Logistyx’s and Tranparix’s core competencies, yet the products and footprints of Transparix and Logistyx complement one another. Both companies provide a globally deployed solution combined with local support, which enables our customers to unlock immediate value within their transportation strategies,” said Richard Haeger, managing director of Transparix.

“We found the vision of Logistyx to be very similar to what made Transparix successful over the past 17 years. Combining these leaders will deliver substantial value to existing and new customers.”
