Who is it for
Validaide was founded in 2016 to support the logistics industry with innovative solutions for supplier qualification and lane risk assessments. On the Validaide platform we connect buyers and suppliers for the transportation of products with special handling needs.
We work closely with the logistics community to standardize and improve supplier qualification for different product categories and modalities. Our initial focus is on air freight transportation of pharmaceuticals, perishables and high-value cargo. Additional modalities and categories will be added in the near future.
In addition, we support our customers with supplier onboarding, verification of supplier data and managed lane qualifications.
