DSV Selects TransPerfect's TransCEND Technology for Secure File Sharing
Secure File Sharing Platform Streamlines Internal and External Execution Processes
NEW YORK, NY, June 1, 2017 – TransPerfect, a leading provider of technology solutions for global business, today announced that its TransCEND platform was implemented by DSV A/S as its transactional secure file sharing system.
TransCEND is a web-based, SSAE 16 SOC 2 / ISO 27001:2013 certified document management platform that eliminates the inefficiencies and redundancies inherent in paper-based transaction processing and closed-circuit file hosting systems. By providing investors, stakeholders, project managers, and clients with real-time access to sensitive corporate documentation, TransCEND eliminates travel and logistics costs associated with extensive due diligence, thereby streamlining DSV’s execution process internally as well as for its customers and vendors.
“With over 15,000 documents spanning almost 1,000 projects and simultaneously accessed by more than 1,200 unique users, our data management requirements are complex and tremendously important to the success of our global operations. TransPerfect’s TransCEND technology was the clear choice for us as we work to ensure that our corporate documents can be accessed securely and efficiently,” said Patrick Julian Figiel-Kibsgaard, Assistant General Counsel, DSV A/S. “It speeds time to market for a multitude of transactional needs, which gives us, and our clients, a distinct strategic advantage through technology. It also allows our group to meet internal deadlines and business requirements.”

It is listed on NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen and has its headquarters in Hedehusene, Denmark. DSV employs more than 40,000 people in over 80 countries around the world. The company is structured in three divisions; DSV Road, DSV Air & Sea, and DSV Solutions, and its main activities lie within the European road transport (trucking) network, and its global air and sea freight forwarding business.
TransPerfect Co-CEO Phil Shawe commented, ”We are excited to have been selected by DSV and are pleased to help them move towards a paperless, secure environment to manage corporate documents between various departments internally as well as with their external partners. The importance of security in today's landscape of digital collaboration cannot be overstated.”
Liz Elting, Co-CEO of TransPerfect, remarked, “The pace of growth in the logistics industry made it important for DSV to stay ahead of the competition in new ways. By offering internal stakeholders and external parties a secure method of exchanging documents and collaborating on projects, they have ensured that they can offer another benefit—that of digital security and convenience—to their customers.”
