Simoco hires to drive growing transport business

Simoco Wireless Solutions has appointed Graeme Warne to a newly created Business Development Manager position, specifically overseeing its growing range of solutions for transport organisations.

He joins from a senior business development position at Dynniq, a provider of transport management systems.

Simoco Wireless Solutions works across all areas of the transport industry.
