Berlin-based sennder, a logistics tech startup, has secured funding from Scania Growth Capital, the investment division of the Swedish truck manufacturer. The amount has not been disclosed beyond “seven-digit funding”.
The digital freight forwarding platform connects the likes of ecommerce companies with trucks and other vehicles for deliveries. The sector has drawn a lot of attention as of late with several other startups competing for market share, such as Spain’s OnTruck and Russia’s Deliver, who all raised funding rounds recently.
“The transport industry is facing a revolutionary transformation through digitalization. With the knowledge and network of Scania, we will be able to accelerate our growth journey, with the ambition to offer the most customer focused and efficient service in the sector,” said David Nothacker, managing director of sennder.
“In a short time, sennder has been able to secure and develop long term contracts with some of the most demanding buyers of logistic services in Europe. By leveraging their digital platform, sennder increases the customer service level significantly while reducing cost for all involved parties,” added Scania Growth Capital founder, Christian Zeuchner.
