Linebooker started in February 2017 and received investment from Patrice Motsepe’s Africa Rainbow Capital (ARC) via GemCap in 2018. Patrice Motsepe is a South African billionaire businessman. He is the founder and executive chairman of African Rainbow Minerals, which has interests in gold, ferrous metals, base metals, and platinum.
This partnership was forged in addition to a simultaneous investment by Venturen (www.venturen.partners) who also plays an active strategic role via its board participation.
Bidding for best price
We are not a brokerage; we use technology to efficiently connect customers to transporters. Our platform allows more transporters to compete and more customers to receive instant availability at the best price. Linebooker matches each load request with the best possible price. This means cost savings versus administering multiple vendors and daily manual telephone communication, negotiation and planning to arrange transport or confirm availability with current transporters.
Logistics cost management
In a fragmented and competitive industry, with no pricing standards or consistency and where logistics are complex, Linebooker has simplified the process. Lower your transport administration and execution costs by up to 25%. In South Africa, transport remains the most significant portion of logistics costs (58%). More than half of the cost of a product is due to its transportation – ensuring it is in the right place, at the right time.
Level 2 BBBEE contributor
We are proud to be a level 2 BBBEE contributor.
Customer and transporter match
Linebooker is committed to making it easier for millions of transporters by giving them direct access to a large customer base with no need to subcontract, and to change the everyday workload of Logistics Managers and their controllers manually calling and emailing to arrange and execute deliveries.
Service and admin
Linebooker has reshaped the infrastructure around trucking to confirm availability, execute deliveries, handle all payments, manage costs more effectively and allowing transporters and customers to deal with one vendor.
