Ronald Udo, IT Manager at Rhenus Contract Logistics in the Netherlands, said: “We attach great importance to the fact that our services are adapted to meet the latest market conditions. Our customers now demand reliable, swift logistics to serve often urgent business needs, and while our carrier network was meeting these demands, it was also growing in size and complexity and so management was becoming increasingly challenging. 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.”
