Peak Capital invests half a million euros in CheapCargo. The service, from the same stable as Cheaptickets, is a price comparison site for sending documents and packages.
According to the initiators of CheapCargo, Marc Poelenjee and Andre Olde Hampsink, transport pricing on demand is just as logical as comparing the price of a refrigerator, a digital camera or a plane ticket online.
About the importance in CheapCargo is only said that it is a ‘substantial minority interest’.
DHL, DPD and DSV, among others, are members of the CheapCargo platform. Around fifty carriers offer their services on the portal. CheapCargo works according to the same principle as Cheaptickets. Prices and arrival dates of the items to be sent can be compared on the site. The customer can then book online.
In addition to the founders and now Peak Capital, the owners of Cheaptickets are also shareholders.
Peak Capital focuses on young innovative companies working in technology, media and communication. The venture capital company previously took a 30 percent stake in the NationaleBeeldbank.nl photo archive site. Other investments were made in SeatMe, Npex and Radionomy.
