Digital road freight platform Saloodo!, operated by DHL Global Forwarding and Freight, which provides air, sea and road freight services, has launched its digital logistics platform for shippers and transport providers in Argentina.
“We are proud of how quickly we are able to expand our digital platform. The successful implementation of Saloodo! in Europe, the Middle East and Africa allows us to offer the service now also in South America. This helps to improve the connectedness and efficiency of the road freight system in this region,” said Antje Huber, CEO of Saloodo!.
“According to our Global Connectedness Index, South America is one of the least connected continents in the world but has made great progress in recent years. In a country where road and, above all, rail infrastructure is deficient, solutions of this type boost round-trip logistics, with the Saloodo! platform being an ideal place to link supply and demand.”
According to the company, Argentina provides the foundation for entry into the Latin American market. “An efficient land freight network is essential for local and international trade and gives an additional boost to economic growth and local and regional connectivity, as it is the key channel of trade within a geographically very large country. Our goal is to get rid of traditional, time-consuming and offline logistics processes – Saloodo! optimizes the whole shipping process on just one single platform,” explained Eduardo Rodrigues, general manager of DHL Global Forwarding Argentina.
The Saloodo! platform works by recommending a transport price based on current market data and makes all transportation documents accessible online. With its logistics expertise in combination with the flexibility and digital skills of a startup, DHL says Saloodo! will give weight to the digitalization efforts of the logistics sector in Argentina.
