Transporeon Group Americas, a global provider of a cloud-based supply chain execution platform encompassing transportation management, carrier sourcing and dock scheduling, announces that Patrick Pretorius has been promoted to sales director of Ticontract, a new role based in Fort Washington, PA. The promotion is accompanied by several strategic hires to support sales and operations in a key growth market for the company.

“Our consistent momentum shows that Transporeon has quickly become integral to our customers’ transportation and logistics processes through increased digitization and collaboration across the supply chain,” says Ed Moran, managing director and senior vice president of sales and marketing at Transporeon Group Americas. “The decision to expand our Ticontract sales presence was a logical step in our business growth strategy, and Patrick, who has taken on increasing levels of responsibility and leadership at Transporeon, was a natural fit for this new position.”

With 14 years of experience on four continents in intermodal procurement, contract logistics and supply chain solutions, Pretorius has deep expertise in creating value for his customers through intelligent and sustainable transportation procurement strategies. He joined the business development team at Transporeon Group in Singapore in 2014. Prior to his position with Transporeon Group, Pretorius served in marketing and management roles with Pantos Logistics and Hyundai Merchant Marine in the Asia-Pacific region.

As director of sales, Pretorius will be responsible for sustaining growth of Ticontract in North America while managing a team of business development managers and inside sales representatives, in addition to overseeing customer support and marketing strategy for the region.

Transporeon Group has reached several notable milestones in the past year, including the addition of 7,600 carriers to its global transportation network, which facilitated the movement of about 11.7 billion dollars in tendered freight across the world in 2017.
