UGANDA – DHL Global Forwarding, the leading international provider of air, sea and road freight services has launched its digital road freight platform Saloodo to shippers and transport providers in Uganda connecting the country into its growing digital network on the continent.
“A robust logistics network will create the foundation for local businesses to succeed and enhance trade. With the introduction and integration of a digital platform like Saloodo! a more efficient logistics sector would increase Uganda’s potential for economic diversification and growth.”
The launch of Saloodo! in Uganda will inject greater transparency and efficiency to the country and regional road network by providing real-time visibility, enabling shippers to identify trusted and reliable freight carriers in Uganda and several neighbouring countries.
This will in turn help carriers manage existing fleets and optimise capacity with full-truckload shipments.

“Digital transformation is a top priority for the industry and this push for digitalization will further enhance trade efficiency and help businesses to grow,” concludes Maier.
