CargoWise, a supplier of technology solutions for logistics service providers, has announced a major expansion into the road transport market with the signing of a landmark agreement with French logistics provider Dimotrans.

The deal gives CargoWise a significant presence in Europe and beyond, as Dimotrans is a major logistics provider in the multimodal transport sector, managing the movement of goods on five continents.

CargoWise will implement its ediEnterprise solution across Dimotrans’s 23 French offices, providing both forwarding and transport management. Later, Dimotrans plans to extend ediEnterprise throughout its operations in the Far East.

Sylvie Billat, MD of Dimotrans, said: “CargoWise has an excellent forwarding solution and, as a development partner, we will help enhance their transport solution to meet the requirements of the European road marketplace.”

CEO of CargoWise Richard White said: “Our partnership with Dimotrans is really exciting for both businesses. CargoWise’s rapid growth and success has enabled us to extend our capabilities in EU logistics.”

Steve Corbet, VP Business Development EMEA, added: “This significant win demonstrates our focus on France and Europe and coincides with the release of our localised French user interface and transport documents. It defines and validates our EU commitment.”
