Delayed information flow, time-consuming price negotiations, huge amounts of manual work and lack of transparency – these are the problems many shipping companies, freight forwarders and rail operators face in their daily work. But this is now a thing of the past: Joyce Klapwijk, managing director of Transire Intermodal Logistics, explains how using driveMybox has brought about a lasting change in their team’s daily operational work.
driveMybox digitalizes the European container market
driveMybox, the Hamburg-based digital booking platform for truck container transportation is conquering the European transport market. With its market entry into both Italy and the Netherlands, the Start-Up is creating a new reach for itself and helping trucking companies and self-driving drivers as well as customers to sustainably digitalize their processes. Digitalization – what does that mean concretely? We turned to our customers and asked Joyce Klapwijk from Transire Intermodal Logistics what has changed for her and her team by using driveMybox.
“With driveMybox, we have an immediate and decisive advantage: We always know where our freight is. We can see the status of the handling at the loading points (depot, seaport, rack location, etc.) in real time as well as the in-time-GPS position of the driver and thus of the container. Like this, we are always up to date regarding our freight.”

What does driveMybox offer?
Unlike a visibility platform or a freight exchange, driveMybox offers a broadened range of services. First of all, Joyce’s team can request transport rates via the platform’s Quotation Tool and like that, select the best offer for their specific needs. After a transport booking is placed, driveMybox supports their customers in handling the entire transport process as well as the operational work. Like that, the platform positions itself as operational partner and therefore, the manual effort for Transire Intermodal Logistics is being reduced. Moreover, driveMybox offers a single platform for controlling the entire transport chain. “Visibility and transparency are created precisely at the first and last mile, which many visibility platforms today are not able to do,” Joyce explains. The platform also includes advanced analytics that help Joyce and her team optimize their supply chain and maximize their ROI.
Once the booking is made, the registered truck driver at the other side can decide whether to accept the trip and manage the transport digitally through the platform. The driver’s transport management through the driveMybox app itself enables real-time data and a direct flow of information between the driver and the customer. This means that every transport can be tracked in real time and Joyce can access detailed information about the transport process at any time. Through driveMybox, the driver has a fixed point of contact and the Transire team as customer can respond immediately if problems arise.
Since the driveMybox network reaches from Germany over the Netherlands to Italy, it is also possible for clients to book cross border transports on the platform. Like this, Joyce for example was able to book a transport in Italy from Melzo no Naples, placed out of her office in Rotterdam without having to send a Dutch truck driver all the way from the Netherlands. Another client for example, who’s main office is located in Hamburg, could easily place transports from Amsterdam to Rotterdam, without having to rely on a German truck driver. The driveMybox network is therefore not only a way to transport containers in a digital, intelligent way, but also to reach international truckers by just one click
Moreover, the driveMybox platform offers secure and reliable services, so Transire can be sure that its containertransport is handled in the best possible way. Thanks to its user-friendly interface and customer-centric approach, both the Transire team and the driver can count on a smooth and stress-free process. “driveMybox also has strong security protocols to ensure the safety of all user data. All communication between us and the driver is encrypted, and the platform uses advanced encryption techniques to protect user data from unauthorised access.” adds Joyce. Providing and storing data is not always without risk, that is why drive-Mybox has placed special emphasis on security and encryption.
