Become a part of Saloodo!

Current Openings

As a start-up backed-up by DHL, a leading expert of road freight services in Europe, we understand why freight transport can often be an unfamiliar territory, proving both costly and time-consuming. This is particularly apparent when sourcing transportation services. Optimizing the shipment processes of other start-ups and small businesses is our core mission. We tackle this by leveraging modern technology, which in turn enables us to get rid of the traditional, lengthy and offline logistics processes.
