Meerbusch/Lauterach – Gebrüder Weiss has been offering customized transport and logistics solutions for more than 500 years. The international transport and logistics company has been using the freight forwarding and customs software Scope for customs declarations in road transport in Germany, Austria and Switzerland since 2022 and is more than satisfied with the return to Riege.

The history of cooperation between Gebrüder Weiss and Riege Software goes back to the days of Procars and Johannes Riege as Managing Director. Even back then, the family-run company from Austria was looking for a sophisticated system for customs declarations and opted for the predecessor of today's product Scope. After many years of successful cooperation, the company switched to a different provider in 2011. More than ten years later, the transport company was faced with making another decision. The old solution no longer met the requirements, and a new software solution seemed necessary. The decision in favor of Riege and Scope came quickly. Scope is widely known in the industry as the leading freight forwarding and customs software and is popular among large and small transport companies.

“One factor contributing to the decision was the good reputation of Riege and Scope. Among other things, the expert knowledge of the service employees was particularly emphasized, as they have often previously worked in a forwarding company and therefore know exactly which issues we deal with in our daily operations and how we can best use Scope to handle them. Especially in Customs, the knowledge of the business consultants is very comprehensive. The decision was therefore an easy one, and we were pleasantly surprised at how quickly the changeover worked. Scope was up and running in just four weeks”.

– Werner Dettenthaler, Regional Manager Land Transport Germany at Gebrüder Weiss

“We are proud to call a company with such a great tradition as Gebrüder Weiss our customer. It is no coincidence that the corporate values of Gebrüder Weiss also reflect our values to a large extent. We also strive to operate sustainably and are proud of our independence. Besides our values, we are delighted that our software and our service are a perfect fit for Gebrüder Weiss,”

– Tobias Riege, CEO of Riege Software
