The main brand that Advenit represents is SOLVO – one of the leading European vendors of comprehensive warehouse management (WMS) and terminal operating software (TOS).
Having carried out a deep research in the field of inland terminal logistics in Benelux, Advenit developed the Solvo Smart Logistic Centre (SSLC), an innovative management software solution specifically designed to boost the efficiency of European inland container terminals built alongside river banks.
Recently Advenit joined forces with Nederlands Centrum voor Handelsbevordering (NCH) to promote high-end WMS and TOS solutions in the Middle East and Northern Africa region.
