20 years LetMeShip – Europe’s leading multi-carrier shipping solution celebrates its anniversary

Hamburg, 20-03-04, Europe’s leading shipping solution turns 20th. What started in 2000 as the first online shipping platform to bring transparency into the shipping jungle, has developed into Europe’s leading shipping software in the B2B sector in the last years. The need for a flexible solution for multi-carrier dispatch processing in companies has been the cornerstone of LetMeShip yesterday and today.

In 2000 the business idea was born from the diploma thesis of managing director Mark Winkelmann. Together with his brother Boris Winkelmann and father Fritz Dieter Winkelmann, the online shipping platform LetMeShip was launched on February 7 in 2000. Since its foundation, Mark Winkelmann has been committed to the innovation and uniqueness of the business idea, which has helped LetMeShip to achieve successful and sustainable growth in recent years.

From the initial idea of an online price-performance comparison for shipping service providers, LetMeShip has meanwhile developed into a software house with its own development department. However, personal customer service and personal consultation of customers still take first place and account for a customer satisfaction rate of 97.8%.

We clearly see ourselves as a pioneer and “first mover” in this environment. We were the first to launch a multi-carrier shipping solution in Europe and have thus laid the foundation for further solutions that are available on the market today. Sustainability and personal customer care are the most important elements of the whole business idea for us, besides the innovative software, and this has paid off over the years“, says managing director Mark Winkelmann.

Many years of expertise, industry know-how and success speak for themselves – new locations have been opened in France, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and the Netherlands. In addition to the DIRECT booking platform, the product portfolio was supplemented by the CONNECT web service interface (REST API). This gives companies the opportunity to integrate the LetMeShip shipping software directly into their system and enjoy all conveniences. With both solutions, companies have the option of implementing their own shipping rates. Alternatively, customers can still switch to LetMeShip rates at any time. This offers them even greater flexibility in the shipping process – even across different locations.

LetMeShip has grown very successfully and organically over the years and always has an eye on profitability. This is also a very important characteristic of the company, as we want to operate on the market in the long term.

We are still on an expansion course and will continue to grow internationally over the next few years or expand from the current seven countries in which we are active to other important markets in Europe and also Intercontinental.

Our customers highly appreciate our shipping solution and we have successfully worked with renowned companies to optimize their processes and create cost transparency.

We are currently preparing intensively for the future and will soon be one of the most important providers on the market with further innovative solutions and service enhancements.” says Managing Director Mark Winkelmann.
