Freight Fast Forward: DHL launches Saloodo!

Tailor-made for small and medium-sized enterprises

Saloodo! provides many advantages for small and medium-sized companies based in Germany that have only irregular freight requirements and therefore no permanent logistics partner at their side:

  • Faster and clearer price/performance comparison without annoying paperwork or lengthy research by phone
  • Direct access to transport providers verified by Saloodo! and bound to DHL’s supplier code of conduct
  • Track fulfilment progress and receive real-time notifications via their personalised dashboard in case of delays, ensuring an improved management of their supply chain and customer expectations
  • Handling of all shipment details including all documents on a single platform

A special highlight of the service is the direct access to price indications based on the current market situation, shipment details and capacity availability, so that shippers can better compare the received quotes and easily choose the transport provider who best meets their individual needs. Furthermore, in addition to the quotes provided by the transport providers, shippers also get an instant quote from DHL which they can book immediately.

Strong partner for transport providers

On the other hand, Saloodo! enables particularly efficient freight logistics for transport providers of any size:

  • Fast and smart access to shipment loads across various regions
  • Presentation of their company’s assets and capacities on a single platform to optimise their trucks
  • Quick payment, since Saloodo! simplifies the billing and payment processes

Dynamic transport quote calculator for competitive quotes

Saloodo! also has a completely new function for transport providers: A dynamic transport quote calculator - derived from analysis of substantial transacted data collected over the years – will assist transport companies to make competitive quotes for each shipment and help them succeed in winning the loads they need.

Driver app for more transparency and less errors

With the innovative Saloodo! driver app, upcoming tours can be assigned directly to the respective drivers via the app. The app provides the drivers with details of the tour and cargo at all times. Possible delays or other problems can be documented directly in the app. The app also reminds drivers to confirm important status messages during the tour, as soon as they are close to the pickup or delivery address. In addition, with the “in app scanner”, drivers can scan the proof of delivery document (POD), upload it immediately and thus get paid within a matter of days.
