Amsterdam startup Sparqle secures €1.2M for sustainable delivery platform

Amsterdam delivery platform startup Sparqle announced the successful completion of a €1.2 million investment round. 

Sparqle's platform offers easy integration between retailers, e-commerce brands, and sustainable delivery methods. 

The company's proprietary software, rider app, and a dedicated fleet of e-cargo bikes and electric vehicles optimise delivery routes for maximum efficiency and minimal environmental impact. This ensures prompt, reliable deliveries and lowers carbon footprints, pollution and urban congestion. 

According to Ruurd Tjeerdema, co-founder of Sparqle: 

"The logistics sector holds untapped innovation potential, particularly in sustainability and efficiency. 

This investment propels us forward, allowing us to bring our vision of cleaner, more livable cities to life. Our approach addresses the urgent need for greener solutions and keeps cost efficiency in focus." 

Further, Sparqle's platform offers a scalable solution that meets the growing regulatory demands for emission-free city logistics. 

Tim van Alphen, co-founder of Sparqle shared: 

"As cities move towards emission-free zones, Sparqle's platform emerges as a solution for businesses aiming to meet sustainability targets without compromising on efficiency.

Additionally, our commitment to transparency and sustainability aligns with the objectives of the recently enacted Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), which mandates comprehensive reporting on environmental impact and CO2 emissions for companies operating within the EU. 

Our detailed sustainability reporting is designed to meet these requirements, ensuring that our partners can confidently demonstrate their contribution to sustainable urban logistics." 

The funding was led by a group of business angels, including the former Managing Director of Deliveroo EU, former CTO of Just Eat Takeaway, and Bloomon founder, alongside Graduate Entrepreneur Fund

The infusion of capital will accelerate the further development of Sparqle's technology platform, expand its sustainable delivery network, and fast-track its expansion into additional European countries.
