The reason we ask for your company’s documents is to fully validate your account. We ask for correct and up-to-date company documents so we can check them according to the DHL’s Code of Conduct. Once the documents get approved, you will be able to submit offers, find transport requests on your routes, secure new transport jobs and get paid for your transport services.
Note: We do not accept handwritten, expired or otherwise invalid documents.

This means that our team is currently reviewing the documents you provided. We will send you an email as soon as your documents have been checked. You will then be able to access your account and submit transport offers on your preferred dates and routes.
- Upload the proof of delivery (POD) document. This can be done after you have already confirmed the delivery of goods or alternatively, by your driver, as the Saloodo! Driver App allows him to scan and submit the signed POD through the integrated document scanner.
- Once the POD has been uploaded and processed, the shipper will receive the document immediately for his review. If the shipper does not disapprove or request a new proof of delivery within 24 hours, then a self-bill invoice will be automatically released.
- Saloodo! will start the transactional process and you will receive your payment for the completed transport order within 14 days.
Saloodo! is your contract partner and your single point of contact. We want to ensure trust and transparency by simplifying the communication between you and the shipper. We help you get suitable loads to optimize your truck capacity, manage transport jobs and profit from guaranteed fast payment within 14 days once the proof of delivery has been successfully added and reviewed for the carried transport.
There are no hidden fees or monthly subscription costs to create and use your account. Another advantage is that you can access your account from any type of device – be it a mobile phone, desktop or tablet. Additionally, our Saloodo! Driver App can also be downloaded for free and can be used to assign transport jobs to your driver to stay in contact from pick-up to drop-off.
- Use the search function to select in which area you wish to find transport requests. Alternatively, you can also select one of the already existing transport requests displayed on your dashboard.
- If you found a transport request that matches your availability, click on the ”Enter Your Offer’ button’.
- By doing so, you can suggest your offer price (based on real-market price indication), choose dates (pick-up and drop-off times) and select the time validity of your offer.
- Click on ”Submit Binding Offer” to submit your offer and increase your chances of getting booked.
This means that the offer submitted by you will be legally binding. As a result, the shipper has the right to book your offer within the timeframes proposed and under the circumstances that you agreed upon by clicking on ”Yes, I want to submit this offer now” button. If the shipper selects your offer, you are obliged to fulfill the transport order.
You can search for transport requests within your radius by applying the ”Search” function. This allows you to select criteria such as the pick-up date, postcodes (e.g. 53113 or 53), min/max weight, min/max loading meters or what type of goods you can transport.
Note: Make sure to remove the date filter option after you found the desired transport requests, as you will stop receiving notifications on that route if the selected date has already passed.
Saloodo! enables the digital evolution of the road freight industry. We simplify your daily business by helping you switch from manual and offline processes (paper-based transactions, lengthy rate negotiations, delayed payments) to online tools and automated processes (thousands of shipments posted, digital documentation, track & trace functionalities) with Saloodo! as your contract partner and single point of contact – all at no extra costs.
You can cancel an offer submitted for a transport request only if your offer was not already selected by the shipper. To do so, select the offer you want to cancel and click on the ”Cancel Offer” button.
A transport request becomes a transport order when your offer has been already booked and payed by the shipper.
Your transport offer is displayed as a pre-tax gross price, so please make sure to include all costs except the VAT.

This can be done by the company administrator, who has initially provided the verification documents and as a result, registered the company with Saloodo!. If you are the company administrator, go under the ”Company” section. Once you have been redirected to the page, just type in the email addresses of your co-workers and click on the ‘Invite’ button. This way, your co-workers will be able to set their password directly and access the platform without having to go through the registration process again.
You can update the status of each transport order directly on the dashboard.

Note: The driver can also update the milestones directly in the Saloodo! Driver App and submit the signed POD through the integrated document scanner. In exceptional circumstances of damaged or delayed times, please contact our carrier management team at email@example.com
The self-bill invoice will be automatically released for the completed transport order once the POD has been reviewed and approved by the shipper. To find additional documents such as proof of delivery, self-bill invoices for specific transport orders, click on ”Archived Orders”.
