The last two years have been a challenging time for the whole industry (world). According to Stephan, what made life easier for them is their continued service to their customers and shareholders- ensuring solid results. When asked about his vision for the company, he said that Transporeon will play a strong role, as their main mission is to bring transportation in sync with the world. They have also just launched Transporeon Insights, a benchmarking tool, data analytics, and market intelligence tool that has seen huge traction and rapid adoption. 

In the aspect of acquisition, one of the most challenging parts for them is making sure that each of the company’s cultures aligns with one another. It is important for them to share the same purpose and values because those two elements are what help them overcome day-to-day challenges. In addition, Stephan strongly believes that it is an important part of the culture for everybody to have equal rights, regardless of job titles and hierarchies. Because at the end of the day it is about the team and not about an individual. Stephan also talked about how they are looking at sustainability, for big markets and opportunities to create value for their customers.
