TimoCom – We bring freight and vehicle space together

TimoCom – We bring freight and vehicle space together

Like so many success stories, it all starts with a need not being fulfilled by any solution at that time. In April 1997, freight forwarder Jens Thiermann was searching for a pan-European procurement platform for transport jobs. But he could not find what he was looking for – so he decided to build it himself! The result was the TimoCom Soft- und Hardware GmbH. After work and on the weekends, the company began developing its own freight and vehicle exchange.

What began as a bold idea back then has today turned into one of the most successful IT specialists for the European transport and logistics industry. TimoCom runs the largest transport platform in Europe; up to 750,000 international freight and vehicle offers are entered every day. The platform offers a logistics network with over 38,500 verified companies.

The IT service provider is both international and specialised, with over 440 employees from 24 nations working both at the German company headquarter in Erkrath, close to Düsseldorf, as well as from representative offices in Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary. The company founder is managing the company, in cooperation with his son, Tim Thiermann, combining long standing management experience with new perspectives. They can look back proudly at many company milestones.
