Love to deliver
Trunkrs is an innovative logistical company in a conservative branch. We have a strong focus on the end receiver, because we believe a perfect delivery is the start of a recurring customer.
Our aim is to be the most inventive parcel delivery company in E-commerce. With smart IT solutions, we create services that makes life easier for consumers and organizations that use our services.
The first service that Trunkrs offers is ‘Same Day Delivery’. This service is tailored to the needs of webshops and their customers. We are already doing 3000 shipments per week for customers, such as Zalando.
E-commerce is booming. In The Netherlands we are ordering over 200 million parcels per year. That number is expected to grow to 250 million by the year 2020. This is great, but has a downside.
These shipments are being delivered by 17.000 delivery vans per day, going in and out of our neighbourhoods contributing to pollution and crowded streets. That is why Trunkrs has built a fast, reliable and sustainable solution for the last mile.
Trunkrs has developed a well-designed combination of the proven professional network and the flexibility of a crowd-sourced delivery.
In the figure below we have illustrated the workings of this solution. Trunkrs controls the complete network from professional collection to crowd delivery.
The last mile is the most expensive and polluting part of the delivery process. By using the crowd to deliver in this last mile we are able to reduce the cost and kilometers made by more than 25%. It also gives us the flexibility to offer a much better experience to the end-receiver. Giving him control over the time of delivery and opening direct contact to the driver.
Last but not least, crowd-delivery stimulates and improves the community within a neighborhood. That's where "love to deliver" comes in. Because what's better than a friendly, familiar face at the door?
The total E-commerce market is expected to be nearly 250 million parcels in 2020
Trunkrs is currently focusing on the Dutch parcel market, targeting primarily the E-commerce segment. In 2016 there were over 200 million
deliveries. This was a growth of over 16%
compared with 2015. Expectations are that this growth will continue.
Same Day Delivery to be 25% of total deliveries in 2020
In an evolving parcel market, the Same Day Delivery starts to emerge. Currently, about 1% of all parcels are already delivered on the same day of ordering. Based on US developments and supported by research (BI Intelligence), same day delivery is expected to be just under 25% of the total market in five to ten years’ time. This results in over 50 million parcels to be delivered Same Day in The Netherlands around 2020.
Focus on larger webshops
For all logistical companies volume is king to bring down the costs per parcel. Research by Twinkle shows that the top 10 biggest webshops sell as much as the numbers 11 to 100 combined. In our commercial efforts, we therefore focus on the top 200 biggest webshops and on 150 e-fulfillment organizations in The Netherlands. Their high potential volumes are a great benefit. Risk of this target group is the high intensity sales process needed to get them on board. However, as we show with Zalando (one of the biggest webshops in Europe), we are well equipped to handle large customers.
Trunkrs has made significant progress since the last funding round, as shown in the graph below.
As shown in the graph, the amount of shipments processed by Trunkrs, is growing significantly. Furthermore, our existing customers have committed to recurring business worth almost € 100K per month, to be realized from the start of Q4 2017.
With this Leapfunder round, we will be able to further innovate in this conservative market. Because of the great progress we made, we are happy to announce that our existing investors also financially back this Leapfunder campaign.
Our current investors are experienced Startup investors and talk with tons of startups. They choose the ones that are most promising to them. So, why do they invest in Trunkrs? They tell it themselves. By the way, they reinvest in Trunkrs in this Leapfunder campaign too!
Joost Ruigrok SDDI holding BV:
As a professional investor, I seek startups that can take a substantial market share in existing markets through innovative, realistic Business Plans and a good executive team. Trunkrs has it all and is therefore in my opinion a promising startup.
Fred Vendrig SDDI holding BV:
As I travel a lot for business all over Europe, I saw that E-Commerce is booming and that more and more commercial vehicles enter the communities to deliver parcels the same day. This results in over-crowded areas and has a negative effect on the environment. I saw that Trunkrs found the solution by transforming the conventional transport system in to a crowd delivery business concept. As an investor I am looking for: innovation, a strong management team and a team that has proven experience in the transport industry. I found that in Trunkrs.
Rokus den Boer P.O.V. BV:
I am always looking for people with a drive, with energy and that's exactly what the people at Trunkrs have. With that they have their idealistic mission of crowd delivery. That was the trigger for me, next to a promising business case of course.
