Clicktrans expands to UK
The European online transport marketplace Clicktrans is now available in the UK. Clicktrans aims to “connect people looking for transport with transport providers who are already making the same route”. The company says that this “new way of looking at road transport” helps to avoid empty running, save energy and money and reduce traffic congestion.
The service started operating in 2010 and is now available in a number of European countries, including Spain, Poland and Germany. Clicktrans reported that its community includes 150,000 customers and almost 30,000 transport companies from all over Europe.
Michal Brzezinski, the CEO of Clicktrans, said: “The United Kingdom is one of the leading countries in the transport industry in Europe. The volume of road freight transport in the UK accounts for almost 12% of total road freight transport in the EU. At the same time, road transport is the second-largest source of CO2 emissions. These figures can be significantly reduced by the idea of transport optimization supported and developed by Clicktrans. Thanks to this concept, Clicktrans has already saved 9.5 million kilograms of CO2 emissions.”
