Together they developed HelloContainer; a full-service booking platform for FLC. The complete process of booking containers is digitized, saving many hours of booking time and minimizing errors in the process. Kees Koopman, CEO of HelloContainer explains why they see value in partnering with, what could be a competitor, Riecon. “Besides the fact that Riecon and we share the same beliefs, Riecon adds reach to our proposition.
