Saloodo! provides cross border trucking across South Africa and within Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA)
On November 11th, Saloodo! took another big step forward: We launched our platform in South Africa, bringing the first digital road freight platform to the region.
We held the launch event of Saloodo! at Inanda Club, Sandton. with over 150 guests from various DHL customers from South Africa, in addition to our DHL Global Forwarding Middle East & Africa CEO, Amdou Diallo, and our Saloodo! Middle East & Africa CEO, Tobias Maier and Pramod Bagalwad, the country Manager of DHL South Africa. It was also an honor to welcome our VIP guests from the professional Rugby team DHL Stormers Cape town – Chris van Zyl and Sergeal Petersen – we were very impressed and it was a real joy to have them with us.
The intuitive and simple-to-use digital solution Saloodo! was first launched in 2017 in Germany and is now also represented in the UK, Italy and Poland. Moving swiftly into emerging markets outside of Europe, the subsidiary of Deutsche Post DHL Group was introduced in the Middle East just six months ago and continues now on its growth path by offering its digital services in Africa. An efficient road freight network is a key conduit of trade within a geographically wide-spread country such as South Africa but also with 16 landlocked countries within Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). However, much of the region’s road freight operations remain fragmented and highly traditional, missing out on the visibility, efficiency and security that technology offers. Saloodo! is now here to solve these challenges.”
