[June 20] European food e-marketplace efoodmanager announced Tuesday a tie-up with two top distribution companies, enabling the site's users to request quotes, book transport, and print out all necessary documents.
The alliances are with Lebensmittelverkehre GmbH, a subsidiary of the giant Danzas Group, and Nagel Airfreight, which specializes in the delivery of perishable products such as fish, meat, flowers, and plants.
Jan Stenger, co-founder and chief executive of efoodmanager, said the alliances were an important step towards efoodmanager's plan to offer logistic services worldwide.
"With the announcement of our first two partners, efoodmanager can immediately offer a wide range of logistic services on the platform. Such services will be offered for delivery around the world by year end," said Stenger.
"We anticipate creating supply chain solutions that integrate the purchasing, handling, and delivery of all food categories traded over our platform," said Meyer.
Currently employing 40 people, efoodmanager hopes to capture 10 percent of online trading activity in the European food industry by 2003.
