On the Saloodo! digital freight platform, freight forwarders and hauliers are now able to adapt their transport offers. This enables them to act on the market more flexible while at the same time giving them more opportunity to optimize their truck capacities.
Many small businesses are currently facing the challenge of having to compete with global companies whose sheer size gives them a number of purchasing and market advantages. This is particularly apparent when sourcing transportation services. In start-ups and smaller businesses, “logistics” can often fall by the wayside. Which is precisely where Saloodo! – the digital freight platform – comes in.
The digital freight platform Saloodo! was launched one year ago. Since then, it has become an integral part of the day-to-day business operations of modern dispatchers and shipping agents.
Effective February 1st, 2018 Thomas Grunau has taken over the responsibility as the new Chief Executive Officer of the digital freight platform Saloodo!. With this, the two central pillars of the company, deep digital expertise, and distinctive logistics competence will be further strengthened. Thomas Grunau succeeds Amadou Diallo, who took over a new role as CEO of DHL Global Forwarding Middle East, Africa (MEA).
The digital freight platform Saloodo! drives its expansion forward. Next stop: Poland. The start-up founded in 2016 by DHL will present its portfolio at the TransPoland Translogistica 2017 trade fair in Warsaw.
Following the successful launch of Saloodo! in Germany, DHL’s digital freight platform is now also available for customers in the United Kingdom. The platform is offering transport services within the UK, from Europe to the UK and vice versa.
DHL’s new digital freight marketplace Saloodo! has set up a high-level, expert advisory board to further assist in the development of the platform. The task of the advisory board is to strategically promote and support the evolution of the start-up by offering long-standing know-how and valuable experience from various disciplines and industries.

Since the successful launch in January 2017, over 1900 transport providers have started using the platform to source for shipments, giving companies access to more than 200,000 trucks offering services in more than 17 European countries.
"Saloodo offers us a completely new possibility to handle our transports cheaply and safely with little effort. At the same time we receive all necessary documents automatically. Should something go wrong, the support is immediately available. My team enjoys working with Saloodo!"
DHL Freight GmbH
"The platform is well structured and very easy to use. A number of carriers submit transport offers for our shipment requests, which means that we are already able to reduce our costs. We know that on Saloodo!, all carriers are checked extensively - this gives us a "safer" feeling about the delivery of our shipments."
''Saloodo! shines with its excellent service. The friendly staff always take time for us and our orders are processed promptly and carefully. No matter the situation, Saloodo! gives its best to make us happy. Even if we plan to transport larger shipments that would be otherwise difficult to deliver, we can always count on Saloodo! to help us ship."
"With Saloodo! I can easily find short-term transport orders. This is really great for us and for how we use our transport vehicles. Through Saloodo! we can find suitable loads, fully optimize the capacity of our trucks and as a result, we can avoid empty trips. What I like in particular is the simple operation of the platform. I do not have to carry paperwork as I can collect all the documents on my personal dashboard."
''We chose Saloodo! because of the ever-increasing complexity in the logistics market. Thanks to the large selection of freight forwarders, we can always select the best offer within a very short time. The communication and the process are running smoothly. Saloodo! not only saves time but also costs!"
Weyer Logistik GmbH
"Thanks to Saloodo!, I now receive freight queries which I would not have received otherwise. Through the platform, Saloodo! allows us to plan truck routes at an early stage. Best is how the process handles our delivery data. Scan, print credit and that's all - it could not be easier than that!"
''Saloodo! is really easy to use. Just select what you want to ship, enter the pickup & delivery addresses and then wait for offers. This saves a lot of time and money. Before we worked with Saloodo!, we had a freight forwarder with whom we placed all freight orders - no matter the cost."
''I appreciate how simple Saloodo! is. You can arrange for your goods to be transported within a few clicks and at the same time, choose the most cost-effective provider. Before we came across Saloodo!, we worked with fixed-rate freight forwarders. Thanks to Saloodo!, we were able to drastically reduce our shipping costs. We use Saloodo! and this is why we can also recommend it to our business partners."
