Carlsquare advised Opheo Solutions on the sale to Solvares Group

Opheo Solutions GmbH, a leading provider of innovative software solutions for truck dispatching and transport management, is joining Solvares Group, the European market leader for intelligent resource optimisation in sales, field service and transport logistics. Previously, the Hamburg-based company was part of initions AG for 20 years, which, following the sale of the Opheo business, now concentrates entirely on its business intelligence services. Opheo Solutions is the fourth company in the Solvares Group, which already includes FLS GmbH, impactit GmbH and Städtler Logistik.

Joining Solvares, which serves customers in 29 countries from 8 locations, opens up the opportunity for Opheo to increase both its visibility in the market and its sales force, while gaining access to new international markets. In addition, the Hamburg-based company benefits from the technical expertise of its sister companies, for example in the SaaS cloud business. For its part, the Solvares Group continues to expand its position as the European champion for resource optimisation: With the acquisition of Opheo Solutions, the group is expanding its portfolio to include solutions for truck dispatching and route optimisation in the transport sector and is continuing its strategic growth course.

Opheo founder Dr. Stefan Anschütz will continue his work as CEO and play a key role in driving the group’s growth in the tour optimisation business field both strategically and operationally: “The strategic orientation and entrepreneurial vision of the Solvares Group convinced me from the very beginning in the discussions. I am looking forward to continuing to act as an entrepreneur, but at the same time being part of a team with related businesses and entrepreneurs. This allows us to focus on the further development of Opheo and on our clients while benefiting from the know-how and synergies of the group,” says Stefan Anschütz and adds: “Opheo joining Solvares Group is a booster for the growth of our business.”

With the third M&A expansion this year, Solvares Group demonstrates its ability to grow dynamically through mergers and acquisitions. Dr. Jens Stief, CEO of Solvares Group, is pleased about the reinforcement from Hamburg: “Opheo Solutions strengthens our penetrating power in logistics with a universally applicable intelligent product as well as a motivated and capable team. In addition, Stefan Anschütz complements our management team in logistics and will help us to further expand the route planning segment in particular.”

The Solvares Group’s back is strengthened by its investment partner DBAG (Deutsche Beteiligungs AG). Like the Solvares Group, DBAG is thus focusing on SaaS-based solutions, a future market in the field of logistics along the entire value chain. Ragnar Geerdts, Member of the Management Board of Deutsche Beteiligungs AG: “With Opheo, the Solvares Group is consistently pursuing its buy-and-build strategy to position itself as a European champion for resource optimisation and to grow both organically and through M&A.”
