The company is present in more than a dozen European markets and for 20 years has been equipping the CRT sector with digital solutions in the areas of GPS satellite localisation software (drivers' car location, routing and vehicle monitoring) and software for analysis and settlement of drivers' working time. Over the past few years, operating within the Innova Capital fund, Inelo Group has made 4 strategic acquisitions of companies: NUSS, Marcos Bis, CVS Mobile, and FireTMS. This has enabled Inelo to continue its dynamic growth and evolve from a local company into a leader in integrated technology for transport in the CEE region.
Approximately 87,000 vehicles are currently equipped with Inelo telematics devices, about 100,000 drivers use Inelo’s software for the settlement of drivers’ working time, and nearly 60,000 are settled through its outsourcing service. In addition, the Polish company supplies 43 control inspections in 23 countries with tools that are used to control international road transport.
This strategically important transaction not only brings additional scale to Eurowag, it also takes us significantly closer to achieving our ambition of delivering a fully integrated, digital end-to-end platform for customers in the commercial road transportation sector. Inelo adds approximately 87,000 connected trucks to our network and solidifies our position as a leading provider of fleet management solutions to the CRT industry in the CEE region. Importantly, it also adds exciting new products to our platform in working time management solutions, which provide mission critical services to customers and drive excellent customer retention. We look forward to welcoming Magdalena, Mikolaj and their team to Eurowag and working with them as we continue to expand our digital end-to-end platform.
