What’s so special about Fliit?
With our platform solution, our logistics partners can easily digitise their existing analogue logistics processes without any IT support of their own. This means that vehicles and trips can be used to even greater capacity. In addition, working with us offers them the prospect of further new orders. At Fliit, food producers and wholesalers have a contact who can handle all their transport logistics in a very straightforward way. Fliit orchestrates a dynamic and flexible vehicle fleet consisting of a large number of regional and supra-regional logisticians. This allows our clients to meet the increased consumer demands for freshness and availability.
What topics are you currently working on?
The shortage of skilled truck drivers and warehouse workers is a huge issue for our logistics partners. Our task now is to see how we can help transport companies solve or at least reduce this problem by digitising analogue logistics processes. This is an interesting problem that is currently keeping me very busy.
What do you enjoy about founding and managing a company?
It's great fun to jump into the deep end every day and experience something for the first time, make mistakes and then learn from them. Every day is like a roller coaster ride where you learn a lot about yourself and your limits. And, of course, it is very nice to see how the "family" continues to grow and how a real team spirit develops in the company.
And what are the biggest challenges?
For a start-up company it is extremely important not to get bogged down in the many possibilities and problems, but to pursue a clear vision and to carry it through the entire company. Holding on to this idea and not being discouraged by setbacks is a great challenge for a small, fragile company. Mike Tyson once said: “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face”. I think that's very true.
