Trunkrs is a provider of same day and next day delivery services. With Trunkrs, the founders wanted to make parcel delivery in the Netherlands more customer-friendly and sustainable. They saw that there was little focus on the recipient’s needs in the delivery process, while delivery is a defining moment in the customer journey of online delivery. After all, this is the customer’s first physical contact moment with the webshop. Trunkrs made delivery faster, more flexible, more reliable, friendlier and more sustainable. Since its inception in 2015, the company has grown rapidly. In 2019, Trunkrs grew by five hundred percent and they will continue this steep growth in 2020. Next year, this growth will continue in the Netherlands and beyond. For more information, see: www.trunkrs.nl.
