“What are we doing? The parcels in our van are all going the same way. And yet we're all in the same traffic jam, in separate vehicles. Something needs to be done.” Jan Wijn, co-founder of Trunkrs, was working for PostNL when he noticed this. All separate deliveries, going the same way. There had to be a smarter, more sustainable solution. Jan got in touch with former colleague Dimitri Balai, and with his friend Hidde Stokvis, who felt that something could be done. In 2015, the three of them started Trunkrs in an effort to create a more sustainable logistics system.
What does Trunkrs do?
‘“From the outside, we might seem like just another logistics company like PostNL or DHL. But we are so much more,” is how Hidde introduces Trunkrs. Trunkrs is an IT platform that brings together the webshop and the transport company in a national network. Everything in this entire chain, like sorting software, online portals for the senders and track and trace software, is developed by Trunkrs. This makes the delivery process for the delivery companies in their network easy and worry-free for end customers.
