Working at
Sendify

Shipping was never made for small shippers, so we took on the mission to built an end-to-end logistics platform to empower small businesses to spend less time and money on shipping and more time on growing their businesses.    Through Sendify, small shippers can access affordable shipping solutions and book shipments with world leading carriers – all in one transport management system (TMS). Through the combined buying power of small shippers, Sendify provides up to 85 % discounted rates and the choice to decide whether price or lead time should determine freight solution. Sendify is free of charge and as a customer, you only pay for what you ship. Since the start in 2015, Sendify has helped over 2 000 businesses to ship worldwide. Today, Sendify is known as the most user-friendly TMS for small shippers in Sweden, not only because of our modern end-to-end platform but because of our skilful logistics agents. By empowering small shippers, logistics is no longer viewed as a commodity, but as a competitive advantage.  Driven by the mission to empower small shippers, Sendify is rapidly growing and set to scale quickly in Sweden, followed by international expansion. Starting with only two people and their laptops, the two-floored office at Vasagatan in Gothenburg is now the site of 16 employees driven by technology, curiosity and encouragement to lead a conservative industry towards the future. With expert competence in logtech and world-leading transportation companies as partners, the future of logtech is bright for small shippers, if you ask us.
