Who is behind Cargonexx?
We are a team of entrepreneurs, technology specialists and logistics experts. Cargonexx is an independent company located in Hamburg, newly established and financed by private investors.
What motivates us?
The digitalisation has made many things of everyday life much easier. We believe that trucking can also be simplified.
With modern technology, we have created something new. Freight forwarders can assign shipments at market prices and reliable quality at the push of a button. Carriers receive matching inquiries automatically and can look forward to fast payment. Cargonexx guarantees quality and safety for both sides.
We are convinced that the trucking market can function for all participants in a more transparent, reliable and democratic way with Cargonexx. We want to ensure a fair balance between the interests of freight forwarders and carriers. Going forward, the business is based on trust. We want to develop this trust ourselves.
How does the market price technology work?
Every day is different, every tour as well. Supply and demand move every hour, depending on the route, the load, the vehicle and many other factors. No one knows the actual market price today for a consignment.
Cargonexx relies on statistical data analysis. Here, we evaluate hundreds of thousands of records from different sources such as freight data, traffic data, weather data and use latest prediction models that are based on self-learning algorithms. These highly complex statistical methods analyse those factors influencing the price and estimate the market price for future tours. This approach has the potential to revolutionize the logistics sector and is unique in Europe.
