Dutch delivery-startup Brenger, founded by Derk van der Have and Wisse Koedam in 2016, raised €600,000 from its current angel investors. This brings the innovative courier provider’s total funding to €1M. Brenger links customers’ transport needs to unused space in vans of couriers opening up a cheaper transport option for large items like furniture, fridges, and bikes – basically all items that do not fit through the mailbox.
Brenger’s platform currently processes 60 transport orders per day via its website. The platform is poised for positive cash flows as it charges a commission on both the demand and the supply side. For the users, the prices may fluctuate on the basis of how far the items need to be delivered and how early they want to ship.
