A Russian freight forwarder has become one of the first online cargo transport operations in the country to implement an Uber-style mode of service.
Deliver aims to achieve greater convenience for its customers and efficiency for more than 59,000 drivers.
The start-up automates the process of ordering freight transport and makes things more efficient by finding the closest sender.
Deliver now hopes to secure up to 15% of the Russian freight market, with plans to begin European expansion and promote more international transportation.
TT Club, with the assistance of its Russian partner Panditrans, has committed to provide coverage and its range of risk management services to the young and fast-growing operator.
The insurer’s contract with Deliver will include advice on contractual clauses and trading conditions as well as a thorough understanding of the liabilities involved in hiring the volume of sub-contractors for this Uber-style freight service.
