Saloodo!: Digital freight marketplace for SMEs
The founding principle of Saloodo!
The business model foresees Saloodo! being the contracting party to both the consignor and transporter for each individual transaction in order to offer both sides a high degree of security. The transport partners benefit from prompt payments through a simplified billing processes – and should, contrary to expectations, the actual contractor fail to provide services, DHL ensures the shipper transport.
Complete handling of the shipping process is displayed and controlled on the platform. This includes tracking and tracing, administration of the electronic proof of delivery, invoicing and any damage documentation if necessary. Saloodo! uses a driver app which helps to provide drivers with transport information and documents in real time. This application currently only runs on devices with an Android operating system.
Customer usage behavior determines the development of Saloodo!
