What do I have to do to transport goods or have goods transported?
The platform brings together suppliers and carriers on the basis of locations and destinations, which they have indicated on the platform. In the app, you enter your location and/or destination, so that demand and supply for transport can be put in contact with each other. Take a look at the Sjipit commercial.
Am I paid for the transport of goods? And by whom?
Businesses who have a valid and demonstrable Chamber of Commerce registration number can become Sjipit carriers. This means that whenever they transport something, they can be paid by the supplier. The supplier and carrier agree on any remuneration and Sjipit is not involved in this.
What is so special about Sjipit?
The cost advantage for both the supplier as well as the carrier lead the way. A carrier generates extra income on trips that he or she would be taking anyway and the supplier benefits from this, because the costs that would be incurred are often lower than with traditional transport services. Sjipit is simple, sustainable and efficient, making the platform suitable for pretty much everyone.
What happens if goods are delivered too late, or not at all?
