Riege shows up at Cargo Week Americas in Mexico City

German software vendor joins largest exhibition for freight and logistics in Mexico.

SANTIAGO DE QUERÉTARO, Mexico — June 20, 2018 — The decision of Riege Software to attend the Cargo Week Americas from June 26 – 28 at Centro Citibanamex in Mexico City was driven by commitment to the developing economy of Mexico and the people being engaged in the forwarding industry. Actively participating in this No. 1 exhibition for freight and logistics in Mexico, hosting empirically over 17,000 visitors, is a must and a mission. As Tobias Riege, CEO of Riege Software points out: “In compliance with our corporate philosophy of ‘Putting people first’ our engagement in Mexico furthers our goal of providing user-friendly technology from Germany. We also know that global partnerships and cooperation are best energized by local feet on the ground. That's why we are in Mexico, that's why we attend the Cargo Week Americas with our own stand.”

Principal task of Riege Software and its Mexican employees is to drive the development and implementation of Mexican-specific features and integrations within Scope and keep it in sync with the rapidly developing logistics industry in Mexico. Scope is the company's innovative TMS, and designated to boost economic success but also to brighten the worklife of the most important factor in logistics – humans. In day-to-day business, Riege provides all services and support needed on-site, adding a personal touch to the digitized working world. “Regardless of electronic communication and fulfillment, our physical closeness adds the human touch promised by our company mission,” states Niels Schellingerhout, Head of Business Development at Riege Software in Mexico.

This approach to thought and action enabled Riege to add functions and interfaces, in short order, to serve the demand of Mexican customers as well as to fulfill the obligatory and mandatory requirements of Mexican fiscal laws.

Currently, Scope contains an impressive number of local Mexican features and functions: Mexican Tax logic, enabling customers to invoice directly out of Scope. The daily automatic download of exchange rates for the Mexican Peso from the Banco de México. The integration of the popular Mexican accounting system CONTPAQi. A feature to validate Mexican tax IDs (RFC). And last but not least, electronic invoicing and stamping (CFDI 3.3) to SAT directly from Scope.

By attending the Cargo Week Americas for the 2nd time, Riege underlines the company's willingness to foster and support Mexican forwarders with an outstanding TMS made in Germany as well as to establish their Mexican entity on a long-term scale. To express their commitment, next to Niels Schellingerhout, Head of Business Development at Riege Mexico, Riege CEO Dr. Tobias Riege will be present and pleased to welcome visitors to inform them about Scope and to answer questions at stand 1202.
