“By choosing Centiro we have found an innovative solution which we hope will help reduce costs and further improve the quality of the services that our customers need.”

“The logistics industry is being driven by the need to provide more services for its customers, but this is also introducing more complexity,” added Hedin.

We feel we have developed a solution that will help Rhenus Contract Logistics in the Netherlands create greater efficiencies across its carrier network and increase satisfaction amongst its customers.”
