The ERP expert SAP will establish a complete digital framework at Girteka Logistics, making an impact across its 18,000 professionals and all business areas across Europe and CIS.

“Our customers want to maximize their return on transportation spend by consolidating with bigger and more advanced logistics providers.

Brian Duffy, President of SAP EMEA North, Shared:
“SAP wants to pave the future of logistics with innovation and technology and become a catalyst to meet market demand for strategic digital transportation services in Europe. In the experience economy, simply moving things from point A to point B will no longer be enough. Transportation companies have a critical role to play as data integrators, connecting the dots along the supply chain. Together, we can lead the way.”
In 2019, ARC Advisory Group, the top technology market research firm for cities, industries, infrastructures, and manufacturing, has identified SAP as the top vendor of the Transportation Management Systems market which they have put into two categories: fleet management and planning and execution.
