The driveMyBox startup has announced plans to roll out across Germany on the heels of initial success in southern Germany, a press release said Tuesday (February 9, 2021). The Hamburg-based company provides an entirely digital platform free of charge, on which clients and service providers can handle transports of truck/containers easily and safely. The company is setting new standards in the co-ordination and processing of orders. From 2021, with the Port of Hamburg as the next milestone, the business area will be expanded from south north.

Digitisation of container logistics

"Based on the positive business developments in the past year, we plan to achieve eight-digit sales in 2021," said Aaron Spandehra, joint founder of driveMybox. Intuitive handling and simple processing are the strengths of the cloud-based platform set up in 2019. Live tracking, automatic payment processing and digital documents, for instance, ensure greater flexibility and transparency in container trucking. The startup's offer is aimed at independent truckers and transport companies.

Avoiding empty runs and long waits 

Leonard Heilig, CTO of driveMybox, commented: "We develop optimization processes and machine learning algorithms based of a modern cloud platform that create plenty of added value for our users." The digitisation of truck container traffic is presently done based on isolated solutions and a delayed exchange of information, which is inefficient and costly, he added. The driveMybox platform avoids empty runs, unproductive waiting and raises transparency. Bookings have so far been done via transhipment stations in Munich, Nuremberg, Ulm and Kornwestheim.
