Virtual megafleet for Europe
It’s a problem that has long occupied freight forwarders: Once truck drivers have delivered their freight, they often return in an empty vehicle – which is bad for the environment and bad for business. The tech company Sennder, which was founded in Berlin in 2015, wants to change this. It has built a platform to match shippers and carriers with the help of algorithms. This digital tool makes it possible to send out countless feelers to make inquiries that once involved constant phone calls and were limited to a company’s own address book. Sennder also allows users to track deliveries in real time. Backed by substantial venture capital, the company now organizes over 60,000 truck transports a month all across Europe.
