Bonn - DHL's newly launched start-up Saloodo! will present its digital freight marketplace from the 24th to 28th of April, at Hannover Messe 2017. Since the successful launch in January 2017, over 1900 transport providers have started using the platform to source for shipments, giving companies access to more than 200,000 trucks offering services in more than 17 European countries.

At Hannover Messe in Hall 6 Stand F09, Saloodo!’s expert team will be there to demonstrate how an easy-to-use and intelligent user interface platform can support and simplify the shipping processes of customers and other interested parties. During the entire event, the team will be at its customer’s disposal to answer any questions and provide further information on how the platform operates and how they can register. Elaine Tan, COO at Saloodo! stated: "We are looking forward to discuss the advantages of our platform with many shipping companies."

Saloodo! presents further developments of the online marketplace in Hannover. This includes a new feature in the dynamic transport quote calculator, which helps transport providers to make their offers as competitive as possible. The transport quote calculator indicates immediately before making the binding offer if the transport price is average, attractive or possibly not competitive. This gives the transport provider additional market information that strengthens its competitiveness. This is because he now has the option of adapting his offer to the binding levy according to market conditions. The dynamic transport quote calculator is based on real-time data as well as special algorithms.

Saloodo! has prepared some improvements for companies as well. Another interesting update at the Hannover Messe, the start-up has simplified the registration process and even better adapted to customer requirements based on its customer-centric approach.

The platform is primarily aimed at B2B companies with short-term shipping requirements, as well as small and medium-sized companies that are looking for competitive offers from trust-worthy road freight transport providers when they need to transport full loads, partial loads and general loads, and who want to handle the transports in a safe and uncomplicated manner.

Saloodo! offers numerous certified transport providers on its user-friendly interface. It is now easy and fast to capture the shipment details using their intelligent shipment assistant. In addition, the user receives a price indication for his current transport, which is based on the continuously growing real-time database, as well as a binding offer from DHL. For shippers, the use of the Saloodo! platform helps them to manage the transport logistics in a simple and reliable manner and at the same time benefit from efficiency and price transparency.

Saloodo! is a digital freight platform on which companies of all sizes can present their capacities and competitive advantages. This way, they can find suitable cargo in order to optimally utilize the capacities of their transport vehicles.

Over Saloodo! the customers also handle the operational processes of the transports. For this purpose, a structured dashboard is available on which all information, including transport orders, delivery status, proof of delivery, damage documentation, invoices, etc., are displayed. Additionally, the information is provided by the powerful driver app, via which tracking & tracing, delay notifications as well as the proof of delivery etc. submitted. All information is available to access on a real-time dashboard for shippers and carriers.

At the F09 stand, interested parties can share their interest and see the functions and advantages of the digital freight marketplace demonstrated by the Saloodo! team. Visitors will also be able to win attractive prizes on a daily basis. The Saloodo! "Loading Meter Calculator" will help to simulate fitting loads in the truck and to calculate the required cargo space. For interested visitors, Saloodo! holds a special attraction: they can prove their gaming skills in a classic Tetris game, presented on one of their LEDscreens and be able to win exciting prizes.
