Press Release Summary = Building on its leadership in this area, Teleroute today
unveiled the latest evolution of its real-time, web-based freight exchange,
Teleroute PRO 2.0, along with the innovative new Freight Tools feature pack.

Press Release Body = Brussels, 22nd November 2006 In a constant search to satisfy
its users and bringing them the latest technologies, Teleroute launched a
pan-European customer interview program, conducted in 12 countries with more than
520 Transport and Logistics professionals interviewed.

The survey revealed that 82% indicated Teleroute as a quality provider, scoring high
on user-friendliness and reliability. Consequently, it comes as no surprise that
Teleroutes posting interface is also praised for its user-friendliness, speed and
range of scope:
89% of the interviewees stated that posting freight on the Teleroute system
is very easy
85% confirmed the relevance of the available freight posting criteria

In addition, Teleroute asked their customers what improvements could be made to
increase their degree of satisfaction even more, as the transport & logistics
business is in a constant evolution.

This information, when combined with Teleroutes own direct contact with customers,
resulted in the development of the new Teleroute PRO 2.0 and the new Freight Tools
feature pack, both built on the newest available technologies.
With the aim of increasing customer choice and facilitating different working
practices, Teleroute PRO 2.0 continues to outperform competitors and becomes
Teleroute\'s smartest online, real-time access to the freight exchange so far. And
with the introduction of collaborative working tools, data quality filters and an
updated automated vehicle exchange generating 50,000 vehicle offers a day, Teleroute
PRO 2.0 strongly reflects the reality of Teleroute as an innovative, proactive and
customer-focused provider, and the Transport & Logistics Professional\'s first

Before launching these new products, Teleroute and BETA test customers across Europe
have tested them thoroughly, offering considerable praise.

Having experienced the highly intuitive new posting and consultation interfaces,
Jessica Baus, owner of medium-sized logistics company Transports BAUS, said, \"The
new interface of Teleroute PRO is far more intuitive and easy to use. I have a
global visibility of my freight activity. It really is easier to manage and organise
our freight!\"
