About Transfollow: 

TransFollow BV is an independent organisation based in The Netherlands providing IT solutions for the transport sector and the logistic chain. Their services facilitate the exchange and storage of data relating to the e-CMR and logistics transactions. This can lead to a significant reduction in transaction costs (compared to a paper consignment note) and the logistics processes can function more efficiently. The online platform makes the digital exchange of consignment notes possible as well as signing and following it. Companies with their own company specific software system can integrate into the platform. The digital consignment note gives full control of all  incoming and outgoing shipments. We expect that the digital consignment note becomes an integral part of the logistic sector in the next 5 years. www.TransFollow.org
