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.
