Logistyx Technologies acquires Transparix to support its parcel shipping SaaS solution

Logistyx Technologies, a US-based leader in parcel transportation management execution (TME) systems and multi-carrier parcel shipping software solutions, has acquired Transparix, a TME Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company headquartered in the Netherlands. The acquisition supports Logistyx’s strategy to continue the expansion of its global SaaS and on-premise parcel transportation management software platform in order to help 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 utilized by manufacturers, distributors, retailers, e-commerce companies, and logistics service providers worldwide to address the increased demand for global fulfilment and the rising volume of parcel shipments to B2B and B2C customers as their e-commerce activities continue to grow. The Transparix acquisition enhances Logistyx’s scalability and agility to address these and other emerging global e-commerce expansion trends.

Bigger European footprint

“Transparix brings high-quality transportation management execution technology, a rich development team and a wealth of industry knowledge to Logistyx,” said Geoffrey Finlay, chief executive officer of Logistyx Technologies. “Transparix’s technology and talent folds seamlessly into our company’s vision and complements the robust functionality our product family offers.”

Since its foundation in 2001 in the Dutch city of Alkmaar, Transparix has amassed an impressive portfolio of clients including Bosch, Office Depot, Footlocker, ABB and XPO. The acquisition expands Logistyx’s European footprint, with the Transparix team joining Logistyx. “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,” said Richard Haeger, managing director of Transparix. “Combining these leaders will deliver substantial value to existing and new customers.”
