ParcelParcel was founded in 2013 by Carlos de Vos, Bas Joustra and Nico Veenman. ParcelParcel enables companies in Belgium and the Netherlands to select the most appropriate logistics service provider for courier, express and parcel services. The company and platform continued to grow in the Dutch and Belgian markets and was featured in the FD Gazellen list of fast-growing companies four years in a row.
Internationalization as the next step
Entrepreneur Carlos de Vos, CEO and founder of ParcelParcel on this move: “We started looking for an international partner as the next step for our business. ITA Consulting Group shares our vision to enable companies and customers to ship globally in an easy and efficient way. By joining forces, we are able to expand our services across Europe as a stand-alone shipping platform aimed at small businesses and consumers, while maintaining our high level of customer service. We are very excited to begin this journey together with ITA.”
Growing time-critical goods shipping market
Hamburg-based ITA Consulting has more than 130 employees and seven locations in Germany, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and Austria. ITA Consulting Group has been experiencing increasing demand for international B2B shipping solutions for years. This is particularly caused by fragile global supply chains, which have led to increasing demand for time-critical and highly flexible shipping solutions.
With the acquisition of ParcelParcel, ITA Consulting further strengthens its position in the European market. The shipping platform PakketParcel offers easy and efficient handling of all necessary services, such as price comparison, service overview, transit times and customs clearance. The merger of the two LogTech companies has high synergy potential, especially in the further technical development of the platform.
Fit in corporate cultures
“For some time we have been looking for suitable collaboration partners with which to expand ITA Consulting Group’s portfolio of services” said Mark Winkelmann, CEO and founder of LetMeShip. “We are delighted to have found a partner with ParcelParcel where our corporate cultures really fit together. We welcome all new colleagues and clients to the ITA Consulting Group.” Both companies continue to rely on the expertise and knowledge of ParcelParcel’s employees. Nothing will change for existing customers of the Dutch shipping platform either; they can continue to count on the same high level of service while benefiting from the expanded network.
