May. 29th, 2024

‘s-Hertogenbosch/Amsterdam, 29 May 2024 – BlueRock TMS, a leading international transportation management systems (TMS) vendor, announces the onboarding of Fortino Capital as an investor. BlueRock TMS was founded in the Netherlands in 2013 by industry veterans with the goal to simplify logistics worldwide. Today, the company delivers its logistics expertise and SaaS-solutions to customers in more than 30 countries across three continents, operating from six global offices. Fortino Capital is a dedicated investor in B2B SaaS companies headquartered in Europe, scaling their business worldwide.

BlueRock TMS combines both operational and analytical functionalities into one modular TMS platform. It provides functionalities across the domains of freight sourcing, procurement, operations planning, order management, shipment execution and freight settlement. With this modular software approach, BlueRock TMS is driving innovation in areas of integrated data analytics and modeling, offering sophisticated optimization and simulation functionalities to its clients. Organizations looking to optimize transportation operations can improve their entire TMS environment at their own pace, leaning on BlueRock TMS’ scalable software and team of experts in logistics, software, and data science.

Organizations worldwide are looking for ways to optimize their transportation and logistic processes to deliver products faster and save time and money, but also increasingly to minimize their carbon footprint and become more sustainable.

Wouter Lammerse, founder and CEO of BlueRock TMS comments: “The focus has always been on enhancing the end-user experience while delivering business outcomes. Our customers typically sit on fragmented data which limits their possibilities to generate valuable insights. BlueRock TMS enables organizations to centralize their operations data by seamlessly integrating systems like ERP, WMS (Warehouse Managing System) and FMS (Freight Management System) into a single environment. The software consequently provides concrete, data-driven insights and recommendations for actions.

Wouter Lammerse, founder and CEO of BlueRock TMS

We are very pleased with the opportunity Fortino Capital gives us to make another solid step forward in our ambition to become the global leader in TMS and analytics solutions. We are looking forward to working together to deliver on our organic and buy-and-build growth strategy.” 


Ida Kuijken, Partner at Fortino Capital: “Fortino Capital is dedicated to accelerating the international growth of B2B SaaS vendors and we are committed to supporting extraordinary entrepreneurship. Working with and investing in BlueRock TMS combines both elements. With our knowledge of B2B SaaS solutions and markets, we are exploring the vast international growth possibilities for BlueRock TMS. We strongly believe that together we can achieve even more autonomous growth and add new customer names next to companies like DPD, Vivienne Westwood, PostNL, and Purolator.

Ida Kuijken, Partner at Fortino Capital

We see BlueRock TMS as a platform investment with opportunities to broaden the offering with targeted buy-and-build acquisitions. We will leverage our network to identify such opportunities.
