About Us

Pleased to meet you!


From start to finish

We believe in long-term partnering with clients from start to finish; we work intimately with stakeholders and create value-add with the help of our skilled consultants. We believe in closely tying solutions to the business processes they serve with a focus on Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) — we digitize the business processes and generate real business value. From our inception, our name has represented the vision on the job: a solid commitment to the delivery of projects from start to finish, or in Latin: ab ovo usque ad mala (from egg to apple, the start and finish of a Roman meal).

Mastering planning puzzles

At Ab Ovo, we take the time to master the intricacies of planning puzzles, customizing standard industry solutions based on regional regulations, needs and constraints. The world record-holding software of our partners and comprehensive solutions that we build allow for this. Propagation, automation, decision support and optimization aren’t buzzwords for us; they are integral parts of every solution we build.

We are Ab Ovo

We support our customers in the digital transformation of their business operations. As a data driven decision support company we support this journey by digitizing decision processes thanks to our deep supply chain expertise, our smart technology and our highly skilled analytical team.

Market leader

Our main market is in Transport & Logistics including Aviation, Intermodal, Landside Logistics, Maritime, Public Transport and Rail Cargo. While we have made a name for ourselves within transport and logistics, we have become increasingly valuable in related spaces, such as Manufacturing, Retail & Field Services in which our solutions have proven to be a value add.

One thing that we are particularly proud of at Ab Ovo is the fact that we are a market leader in the European Rail industry, servicing both Rail Cargo and Public Transport clients.
