King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) has advised the shareholders of TIM CONSULT GmbH (TIM CONSULT) on the combination with Transporeon Group.
TIM CONSULT, the international business logistics consultancy, has sold its “Business Logistics” division to Transporeon Group, the operator of the cloud-based logistic platforms Transporeon, Mercareon and Ticontract, and becomes thus a part of the group.
Following the combination, Transporeon Group will be able to offer market intelligence products, consultancy services, as well as big data applications for the transport and logistics market. TIM CONSULT will be 100% part of the Transporeon Group, but will continue to operate as an independent business, retaining its two offices in Mannheim, Germany and New York City, USA. TIM CONSULT’s separate business units “Warehousing and Intra-Logistics” and “Waste Management” will continue to operate as independent entities. Björn Klippel, founder of TIM CONSULT, becomes shareholder of the Transporeon Group and remains Managing Director of TIM CONSULT.
