wastebox.biz goes Germany
From 5 to 9 September 2018, newly founded Wastebox Deutschland GmbH is showing its innovative business model for efficient recycling logistics at the NordBau trade fair. With its app, Wastebox Deutschland GmbH – a merger between Veolia and Pink Robin GmbH, a subsidiary of Saubermacher – revolutionizes waste management industry in Germany.
Wastebox.biz is the name of an app with which (construction) companies can simply, swiftly and transparently organise their construction site waste using a smart phone. With it, you can order the right skip for your construction site in minutes while orders are transmitted directly to available and favourably located drivers. Thus, wastebox.biz offers reliable waste disposal in a matter of minutes. “Integrating Wastebox Deutschland GmbH into the Veolia Group, we expand our competence in the disposal business and widen the range of our services which is increasingly focused on digital waste management,” underlines Guido Adomßent who serves as Veolia’s Sales Manager and – together with Jörn Nehmzow – as the General Manager of Wastebox Deutschland GmbH.
Besides the app, customers can make use of an additional web portal which can be used to provide orders, construction site details, disposal costs and delivery notes in real time. The benefits are quickly listed: high level of efficiency thanks to automated processes, high utilisation at fair terms as well as fast and reliable service with a high degree of flexibility. This is disposal 2.0.
With this app, Wastebox Deutschland GmbH – a merger between Veolia and Pink Robin GmbH, a subsidiary of Saubermacher – now presents itself for the first time on the German market. In Austria, the wastebox.biz platform has been in existence for more than two years and is since continuously developed further to better meet the wishes of customers and partners. In this time, wastebox.biz has managed to create a network consisting of more than 50 disposal partners and within a few months established the largest fleet of disposal vehicles without owning a single lorry themselves. For this achievement, wastebox.biz was awarded the Austrian Logistics Award by Verein Netzwerk Logistik (VNL) in June of 2018.
In the future, this online platform is supposed to become the leading solution for construction site disposal and thus contribute to the creation of digital construction sites. Thanks to the partner model, participating local and regional disposal companies benefit from larger order volumes and increased utilisation of their fleets. Additionally, it optimises logistics, reduces traffic volumes and thus lowers CO2 emissions.
