DHL Launches Digital Freight Marketplace CILLOX

DHL Launches Digital Freight Marketplace CILLOX
Danny Gill

DHL is looking to accelerate the digitalization of the logistics industry with the market launch of CILLOX. The online marketplace matches full-truckload (FTL) and less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments with available transportation providers. This news of the market launch comes swiftly after DHL bought the platform only a short two months ago.

The CILLOX platform gives access to reliable and suitable transport providers for their particular cargo. The system is designed to eliminate time-consuming price negotiations and difficult comparisons of prices and services. Shippers get immediate access to pricing information based on their shipment characteristics, availability of trucks and last-booked rates. This enables a better comparison and booking of incoming quotes from transport providers. CILLOX offers the freedom of choice in a marketplace, as shippers choose and book the transport provider that best fits their requirements, yet enjoy a single point of contact with CILLOX as their contract partner.

Mr. Amadou Diallo, Executive Vice President, Value Added Services & Integrated Logistics at DHL Global Forwarding and CEO, CILLOX, said: “Our main objective is to make the platform as convenient as possible in order to simplify our customers’ lives and we will continuously evolve the platform according to user needs and feedback. I’m confident we will shake up the freight forwarding business, and the digital transformation of our industry will benefit all parties involved.”

DHL initiated a test phase of CILLOX with customers since September 2016, and is now commercially ready to use for all companies and transport providers shipping road freight within Germany or from Germany throughout Europe. DHL says they are working on extending its transport modes, services and geographical coverage
