The European leader in supply chain visibility opens an office in Amsterdam and welcomes Dennis van Bodegom as Director of Northern Europe

Paris, September 18, 2018 - Shippeo, the leading supply chain visibility platform in Europe, opens operations in Benelux and the Nordics, in order to meet the growing needs for real-time and predictive visibility of shippers.

Two months after having established itself in Germany, Shippeo expands to Benelux and the Nordics by opening a new office at Amsterdam and welcoming Dennis van Bodegom as Director of Northern Europe. Dennis brings more than 25 years of Business Development and Sales experience with enterprise software companies. Previous to joining Shippeo, he was Global Accounts Director at Infor, a leading enterprise software company, where he successfully closed deals with strategic accounts in Benelux and the Nordics to help them accelerate their digital transformation.

In addition, as part of their expansion into Northern Europe, Shippeo has announced the opening of its Amsterdam office.

"Benelux and the Nordics are a strategic region for Shippeo, helping us to further establish ourselves as European leaders," says Lucien Besse, co-founder and COO of Shippeo. "With two main European ports located in Benelux, and very vast road distances being the reality of the Nordics, shippers need to rely on real-time and predictive visibility in order to efficiently run their supply chains. We are very excited to welcome Dennis as Director Northern Europe, to help us position Shippeo in a region he already has extensive experience in. We are certain his skills and contribution will be invaluable to Shippeo's growth."
"I am really looking forward to this new challenge with Shippeo", says Dennis van Bodegom. "Many market leading companies located in Benelux and the Nordics are seeking to digitally transform their supply chains, and I can't wait to show them how Shippeo can help them increase customer satisfaction and achieve operational excellence."
