InstaFreight

The € 350bn European logistics market is huge in size but barely digitized and highly inefficient and fragmented. Shippers struggle to find reliable carriers at stable prices and carriers struggle to find regular shipments and geographically predictable trips leading to 30% of all trucks running empty in Europe. This creates a massive opportunity.

InstaFreight is bringing logistics into the digital age. As a digital platform for shippers and carriers, InstaFreight better serves its core customers using technology. Our platform enables us to match supply and demand more efficiently than the legacy players who still use telephones and spreadsheets. The results: higher utilization, standardized high quality, faster payments and affordable capacity. Digitalization and automation of processes enable end-2-end transparency, elimination of manual work and cost savings up to 25% for shippers.

We deploy modern technology in agile organizational structures and regularly challenge what has been the status quo in the industry for decades. As a result of this disruptive approach, we are transforming a massive industry and are growing rapidly.
