inet banks on a strong network of partners

For inet, a global network consisting of over 500 SCM experts is a key factor for the successful imple-mentation of complex projects.

Getting the best out of logistics processes is a very sophisticated task - and too sophisticated for generalists. For this reason inet insists on strong partners, especially during the implementation phase. Combining the knowledge and energy of several experts results in faster and better solutions. Together with its partners, inet now consists of a global network with more than 500 supply chain management professionals.

This leads to many advantages: Firstly, scalable manpower, which is of decisive importance in the case of international implementations in particular. Secondly, superior software due to the integration of specialist products, features and functions.

Thirdly, faster and lower cost implementations through the connectivity of important platforms. Fourthly, focused knowledge and experience from different sectors and customers and therefore superior innovation potential. Our customers ultimately benefit from having just one personal contact, although in the background, many experts contribute to the success.

For inet, the partnerships are an essential component of the future: it is only in this way that comprehensive, flexible and innovative products and services for global transportation management can be ensured sustainably. Sales Director Michael Böckle:"Our shared portfolio of services creates solutions with demonstrable practical benefits and above-average cost savings. We will continue to develop this in the future so that we are able to achieve the best results for our customers."
