Cologne, Germany, December 7, 2021
Professional windsurfer Vincent Langer, three-time world champion as well as multiple German champion, has been using the freight platform Saloodo! for shipping goods for his company for a long time. Now both business partners have expanded their cooperation: Langer will become a brand ambassador for the logistics start-up Saloodo!.
“I have two full-time jobs, so to speak: one as a professional surfer and the other as an entrepreneur. When I’m training or at a competition, I can’t afford to be constantly thinking about transport orders or shipping goods. That’s exactly why I became a Saloodo! customer – they take care of it,” explains Vincent Langer. Like many small and medium-sized entrepreneurs, the professional surfer used to face the problem of finding reliable transport companies easily and efficiently. In such cases, one usually calls the regional transport companies, but then asks oneself afterwards whether the price-performance ratio is right. With his company “Vinc Sports”, Langer produces surf wear and sells it through his own online shop. To deliver the goods to his customers, Langer tested many shipping companies and freight exchanges – then he came across Saloodo! and has been a loyal customer ever since.
“We are very pleased that Vincent Langer has chosen our brand. Saloodo! combines a passion for dynamics, innovative solutions and the pursuit of excellence with surfing,” says Antje Huber, CEO Saloodo! “As a young company, we work extremely agile in an environment that is characterised by great competition. Using digital technologies is the way to give our customers an edge over their competitors. Nothing exemplifies the characteristics of Saloodo! like working with Vincent Langer, who is a three-time world champion, entrepreneur and Saloodo! customer.”
With Saloodo! the entire transport process, from transport request to invoicing, is completely digitalised and automated. Shippers always receive up-to-date status reports on their order, for example when the transport service provider has loaded the goods or the transport order has been completed. The platform is used by more than 30,000 shippers and over 12,000 forwarders. Saloodo! is currently active in more than 50 countries on 4 continents. This means that Vincent Langer can always be sure that his goods will be shipped smoothly with Saloodo! no matter whether he is on the island of Sylt, in Cape Town or in his office.
