Alpega, a Belgium-based provider of on-demand transport management software, acquired TenderEasy AB, headquartered in Stockholm, effective Dec. 31, 2017.

Alpega offers end-to-end solutions covering all transport needs, including transport management services (TMS), Transwide, Inet, TAS-tms and freight exchanges Teleroute, BursaTransport and 123Cargo.

TenderEasy broadens the product portfolio and geographic reach of the Alpega Group. The TenderEasy solution will remain as a standalone service, but will also be technically integrated with Transwide to create an advanced and user-friendly procurement suite spanning the entire “source-to-pay” lifecycle on a single web-based platform.

Through the integrated TenderEasy tool, users can search and analyze Alpega’s unique 50,000-plus carrier database, issue requests for quotation and use algorithms to optimize and analyze the results.

As a result, Transwide TMS is able to support the complete procurement lifecycle from pre-tender data analysis and supplier management to automated carrier allocation and freight audit.

TenderEasy will continue to be led by co-founder and CEO Johan Vagerstam together with co-founder and CTO Anders Abjörn and Fredrik Nergell, CCO.

I am delighted to welcome TenderEasy to the Alpega family. I strongly believe that the Transwide and TenderEasy integration will provide an easy-to-use and flexible one-stop-shop to streamline our customer freight procurement process,” says Fabrice Maquignon, chief executive officer of Transwide and Teleroute.
