Corporate Story

Dutch shipping causes more carbon dioxide emissions than all cars in our country combined. Shocking, right? Because of this, we created HelloContainer: the first digital platform for entrepreneurs who want to contribute to the environment. As the best online booking system for shipping, we facilitate logistics.

For example, we digitize administrative procedures, which enables exporters to arrange container transport themselves. With countless options, from A to Z and within a few clicks! On the other hand, we focus on reducing air pollution in Dutch shipping. HelloContainer, hello user friendly choice!

Transparency is key

How do we contribute to environmentally conscious choices? It’s quite simple! Not everyone is aware of the fact that container ships are very polluting. For example, they emit CO₂ and nitrogen oxide, resulting in water and air pollution. Step one is therefore to create awareness about this disturbing fact. We do this simply by being transparent.

Not only do we provide our customers with a complete overview of prices, sailing schedules and quality, but thanks to our cooperation with the European Institute for Transport and Living Environment, the amount of CO₂ emissions is also shown. By listing various options, we encourage our customers to make more sustainable choices. In this way we work together on clean air and ocean.

In your own hands

In addition to cleaner air, we make the logistics process within shipping digital and manageable. HelloContainer digitizes administrative activities, such as the preparation of quotations, export documents and communication with carriers and ports. This has many advantages. HelloContainer has been in development for three years and had pilot customers in the fruit and vegetable sector: one of the most difficult sectors, because of refrigerated containers and inspection bodies.

Experience so far shows that exporters save at least 20% on logistics costs. HelloContainer also offers exporters other advantages, including a higher chance of scoring on quotations and working more cost effective, quicker and more efficiently. Handy, because this way you save a lot of money and time.
