DHL has launched Cillox, an online freight marketplace that connects shippers and transport providers on demand.

DHL expands Airfreight Plus network to Russia and CIS region“Our main objective is to make the platform as convenient as possible to simplify our customer’s lives and we will continuously evolve the platform according to user needs and feedback. I’m confident we will shake up the freight forwarding business, and the digital transformation of our industry will benefit all parties involved,” said Amadou Diallo, executive vice president value added services & integrated logistics at DHL Global Forwarding and CEO of Cillox.
