Wacker Neuson enters digital logistics joint venture

May 20, 2022

Wacker Neuson has joined PORR Equipment Services and Umdasch Group Ventures in a joint venture to create a digital platform for core construction logistics processes called Sequello Austria.

The closing of the transaction is subject to antitrust approval, which is expected in the coming months.

“At Wacker Neuson, we are always on the lookout for solutions to make our customers’ daily lives easier and increase their efficiency,” said Alexander Greschner, CSO of Wacker Neuson SE. “And that’s exactly what the Sequello construction logistics platform does. Digitizing the ordering, delivery and invoicing processes offers our customers real added value and we see major potential to develop Sequello into an industry-wide solution. That is why we are bringing our industry knowledge and expertise as well as our human resources to this joint venture with PORR and Umdasch Group Ventures.

Optimized process management and intelligent logistics increase the productivity of the construction workflow. The Sequello construction logistics platform digitizes and simplifies processes along the value chain that were previously paper-based.

Specifically, construction companies can use it to place electronic orders with their suppliers, for example for concrete or fill materials such as gravel and ballast, check order status online and enter all the data at each stage up to the verification of the invoices. There are also plans to integrate additional modules into the platform, such as rental of construction equipment and machinery. This will allow customers and suppliers to collaborate even more productively, digitizing processes, minimizing sources of error and saving time.
