Why Log-hub Marketplace?

 

“Robots, automation, computation, wearables: warehouses are no longer big storage spaces.” Transmetrics accurately describes the paradigm shift that is currently happening. And Log-hub is jumping on this train, too. Besides our Supply Chain Services, we have another ace. We offer a global on-demand warehouse marketplace, which operates across 38 countries. Further, it offers more than 1 million pallet places. Our marketplace matches businesses seeking flexible space and warehouse providers offering available capacity and related services.

Matching Space + Goods

Our logistics expert at Log-hub were unsatisfied with the current situation in the market. As a matter of fact, storing physical products can be quite difficult. There are inflexible long-term warehousing contracts and further a constant change of inventory volume. Unsurprisingly, this leads to the fact that usually 20 Percent of total warehouse capacity is idle. Therefore, businesses require variable storage volume but usually the warehouse capacity is fix. We had an idea: Stop wasting time with inefficient and time-consuming search for space. What if, if there would be a platform that matches goods and space. Similar to the Airbnb-concept. Just applied to the world of logistics. Log-hub enables a seamless transaction to maintain the highest flexibility – by being aware of the requirements of all business partners.  Hence, we created a network of space providers all over the world, fitting to the warehouse capacities our customers really need.

In essence, our first and foremost goal is to make your Supply Chain more efficient. With our Supply Chain Apps, our Supply Chain Analytics and Consultancy Services and our Marketplace. After all, this is what makes Log-hub so innovative. In conclusion, this is why Transmetrics selected us as one of the best Warehousing Startups.
