With modern technology, people are used to finding what they want quickly on the internet. However, logistics has been slower than other industries to offer consumers online tools to have their products or possessions easily and quickly transported by shipping companies or forwarding services.
A Danish-German startup based in Hamburg, Europe’s second-busiest container port after Rotterdam, has developed a software solution to make this easier. The software of ItsMyCargo enables freight forwarders to enhance their online shops with a customized online booking system that provides customers quick quotations and reservations.
“We have set ourselves the goal of helping small and medium-sized logistics companies to hold their ground in the digital age with their own modern technologies,” co-founder Robert Sieg said in an interview with HamburgNews. The startup is already working with a number of sea freight forwarders from Germany, Scandinavia, the Benelux countries and China.
