PRESS NEWS | Adnavem shows continuous growth and prepares for scaling its offer
Adnavem is scaling. In just over four years, the tech company has gone from four founders, based in Sweden in 2017, to some 25 colleagues in three countries on two continents in 2021. Digitalisation is the main force, alongside a high demand from logistics professionals looking to automate and optimise the supply chain.
Adnavem continues to drive change and revolutionise the logistics industry with a marketplace for best container freight options and automated supply-chain processes.
Andreas Wramsmyr, founder and CEO of Adnavem, previously spent years working for large corporations optimising logistics and supply chain.
Andreas Wramsmyr is looking out over the Avenue in the heart of Gothenburg.
“In my previous positions, I started to realise that we were stuck in patterns not necessarily beneficial to the overall business. Transportation and supply chain are often seen as necessities. Still, no or little time is spent understanding the actual process and how it can be optimised to maximise the business value,” says Wramsmyr.
A growth rate of 500% prompted a major demand for a flexible and reliable supply chain
The pandemic has been a driver for digitalisation, exposing a conventional industry. To Andreas’s mind, there is no doubt that significant pressure exists to tech up logistics processes.
“Even before the pandemic hit, I could see that many companies were looking to digitalise the supply chain. Some were looking for calculations to choose greener freight options and routes, while others were wanting to cut costs and gain more control.
“Since the onset of the pandemic, we can see a higher demand for being able to control the supply chain. Many companies want to access digital tools and use automated processes to optimise their supply and transportation processes. Digitalisation offers benefits that most importing and/or exporting companies can no longer afford to ignore,” Wramsmyr explains.
Adnavem’s journey started over four years ago in Gothenburg, a major city in Sweden, situated on the country’s west coast. It is an important seaport with the largest port in the Nordic countries, and over 800,000 TEUs annually shipped from destinations worldwide.
The tech company is growing, primarily in Asia and Northern Europe. Since last year, the growth rate on a Q4 basis has increased more than five-fold compared to the previous year.
“We are scaling, and are happy soon to be able to offer our technology and services to new markets. More and more importers and exporters are knocking at our door, attracted by our self-service enabled platform where customers can access all relevant data at their fingertips. Change is moving fast, and so are we,” Andreas Wramsmyr concludes.
