The Tunisian transport market has welcomed, since 2016, a new operator. eFret.tn is an innovative startup that connects shippers (individuals or companies) with transport and transit companies. It operates an online market platform where shippers describe their needs and receive free quotes from carriers, movers, and international transport companies as well as customs agents.

With this method, carriers can offer competitive rates, optimize their routes through grouping and also reduce empty returns. After delivery, the carriers are evaluated twice both by the site and the customers.

eFret.tn was created in 2016 by two partners specialized in e-commerce, e-business, and logistics. The idea was to simplify logistics in Tunisia and optimize transport by making it cheaper and facilitating the obtention of transport quotes. The platform takes into account different types of services, including local land transport (moving, parcels, transport of goods within Tunisia); international air transport (transport of goods, parcels, and freight, to and from Tunisia in import or export); international maritime transport (transport of goods, containers, and goods to or from Tunisia); customs transit (freight forwarder service to carry out the customs formalities for all import or export operations to or from Tunisia).

eFret.tn is a sort of transport exchange that makes the activity more optimized and economical. Co-founder Wajdi Ben Rejeb (pictured) explains that by optimizing the movements of carriers through the grouping and management of empty returns, the startup can reduce CO2 emissions and help preserve the environment. This innovation earned it the 2017 Orange Social Entrepreneurship Award. Wajdi Ben Rejeb pointed out that obtaining this award has helped increase tenfold the number of ads from shippers on the platform.
