Logistics collaboration firm, Giventis International BV, is expanding its operations in Europe with two well known supply chain insiders, Peter Surtees formerly European Supply Chain Director of Kimberly-Clark and Nigel Wakeling MD of Pure Logik Ltd joining its team.
Aimed at logistics service providers, inbound retail, and shippers, Giventis uses business intelligence and its cloud-based platform, ELG-Web™ to identify and facilitate collaboration opportunities
“Most companies have only limited understanding of the collaboration potential of their own networks, but this has to change if they want to take out costs and emissions,” said Peter Surtees. “Having used Giventis to identify and deliver collaborative transportation saving whilst I was with Kimberly-Clark I am really looking forward to working with the company to continue to drive the collaboration agenda”
Mike Bogen CEO Giventis international said “We are delighted that Peter and Nigel have agreed to join our team. Their cross industry expertise in collaboration, supply chain and logistics operations will be invaluable.
Giventis is a partner in the CO³ (Collaborative Concepts for Co-modality) Project that is designed to improve the competitiveness and sustainability of European logistics through transport collaboration.
