At booth M1, Implico will welcome interested parties from all sectors of the supply chain and tank storage industry: terminal operators, fuel traders, IT providers and freight forwarders.

With next-gen TMS we will facilitate this evolution and finally help digitization achieve its breakthrough”, says Rolf Adam, CEO of the Implico Group. “The new solution’s most important benefit is the simplicity with which it can be implemented. The cloud offers lots of possibilities here which we will roll out to the customers right now.”
