Ontruck digital platform goes international – updated

[ July 8, 2020   //   ]

Digital road freight platform Ontruck has added international distribution to its portfolio. It enables shippers to book international long-haul full truck loads across core distribution lanes in Western and Central Europe and will facilitate exports from Spain into Portugal, France, Germany, Benelux and Poland and imports from across Europe into Spain and Portugal.

Ontruck plans to bring the international service to the UK. It is currently rolling out the product across routes in mainland Europe and hopes to adapt this for the UK market in 2021.

The service has been tested earlier in the year by clients including Carrefour, GBFoods, Smurfit Kappa and Celsa Group. Ontruck says the results show a strong fit with the growing demand for traceability and flexibility in international transport, which peaked across shipper operations during the coronavirus outbreak.
