“I was really thrilled when I listened to the stories of the logistics experts in our first workshops in 2019/2020,” says Stefanie Kraus, Co-Founder of Loady. “The goal of these sessions was to identify high-value digitization opportunities at BASF SE. I would have never imagined that there were still so many manual processes, break and pain points in logistics processes”.
With the first mock-up up design, Stefanie validated the idea of Loady together with many industry players. In February 2021, Elzbieta Wiankowska joined the team and both decided to pitch at the “shark tank” of Chemovator GmbH, the BASF incubator for new ventures. The jury noticed immediately the potential of Loady and the impact that such a platform would have on the entire industry. With Loady relationships in logistics would change completely.
In November 2021, after an intense three-month validation phase, the design and development of the Loady SaaS solution started, finally. In June 2022, the first chemical companies and carriers will be able to sign up as beta-testers.
Loady aims to spin off as a neutral, independent company in August 2023.
