TimoCom supports the recommendations of the IRU
The economical and ecological advantages of using a freight and vehicle exchange are clearly obvious to both the transport service provider and business partner. However, providers and users are also confronted with challenges and risks that are only apprehended and discussed by the International Road Transport Union (IRU) Goods Transport Council (CTM) in Geneva, to adopt guidelines for a secure handling with freight exchanges. With up to 450,000 freight and vehicle offers daily, Timocom established in 1997 sets high standards concerning security. This includes, among others, detailed and constant veri
cation of all customers and business documents before access to the platform is granted, competent legal advice in critical cases as well as a sophisticated IT system with security access.
