The Saloodo! digital freight platform has been launched, that aims to seamlessly connect shippers and carriers in international markets.
Digital road freight platform Saloodo! was launched in Germany in 2017 and has seen strong growth, firstly across Europe and then into the Middle East and Africa.
For Saloodo! CEO Thomas Grunau the global roll out comes at exactly the right time: “Saloodo! was founded 4 years ago. Since day one, our goal has been to offer our customers real added value and make their lives easier. With this in mind, we have always given ourselves the freedom to develop functions that are close to the needs of our customers in the different markets. But now it was time to bring it all together on one platform so that Saloodo! customers around the world could benefit from all these efforts”.
As well as connecting shippers with carriers the platform also enables shippers to connect markets together. Now Saloodo! users can arrange international transport between the Middle East and EU or vice versa. This will be attractive to large, global shippers as well as smaller businesses.
“We are already working with a number of global players. These customers have a high degree of digitalisation and operate worldwide with seamless processes. On the part of their transport and logistics providers, this often looks different, resulting in disruptions in the companies’ supply chain,” explains Anja Kappus, COO Saloodo!. “With the global digital road freight platform, we at Saloodo! can make precisely these processes more efficient and economical – worldwide.”
