If you have previously posted other requests, you will be able to use the ”My recent addresses” function. This means you don’t need to reinsert the same addresses for recurring requests.
3. Post your transport request to see all prices
- Once you have provided all the necessary details, you may get an estimated price calculated depending on the transport characteristics provided by you, availability of trucks and last-booked rates paid for standard tilt/taut trailers. This price is a non-binding estimation for you to compare all the prices you will receive from the carriers active on the platform.
Alternatively, after you clicked on the ”See Prices” button, you will get directly redirected to your dashboard, where a list of current offers will be displayed for your transport request.
4. Choose an offer

5. Next steps
- Proceed to payment and pay securely with Saloodo! as your contract partner. Select from our payment methods.
- Finalize the transport order by providing the details of the contact persons at the pick-up and the delivery locations.
Note: Not providing contact details after paying for the transport order may result in transport delays which in turn could result in surcharges, so please make sure to add the correct and complete contact details of the persons present at the pick-up and the delivery locations.
You can ship anything that may extend over a whole truck, individual pallets, barrels, boxes, handling units or a mix of everything mentioned. However, your shipment must be packaged according to the requirements for load securing and conveying capacity. Loose parts or unsecured goods may be rejected by the driver, while some goods may be excluded due to their dangerous nature.
Note: Please read our Terms and Conditions to get more information on what types of goods you are allowed to transport and under what kind of circumstances.
Some examples are:
- Weight min/max: 31,5 kg/24.000 kg – Secure and clearly marked packaging is necessary.
- Fit for the purpose of transportation and handling, safe from unauthorized access (no undetected access to goods must be possible)
- Pallets must be stacked flush on top of each other
- The goods must be able to be moved by one person safely without damage.
In case of valuable or theft-sensitive goods, you must inform Saloodo! of the specific transport request depending on the type and value of the goods and the current risks involved. This will enable us to assess whether or not to provide a price and take appropriate measures for the safe and damage-free completion of the transport. Valuable goods are classified as those that, at the time and place of taking over, have an actual value of at least AED 50 per kg or AED 10,000 per packed item or per shipment.

Give a full description of your goods, correct dates and accurate pick-up and delivery addresses. Post your request at least a few days before the shipment needs to be picked-up. By doing that, the carriers will have more time to plan their routes and check their truck capacities. This way, you will also increase your chances of getting more transport offers.
Note: We will use reasonable efforts to keep the time windows requested, however best is to ensure that the pick-up and delivery sites operate normally during the times selected by you.
You can see an overview of all the completed shipments and transport documents in the ”Archive” section, on your dashboard. This happens when the transport documents have been already checked and your shipment has been transported.

Every carrier who submits an offer for request will be able to do so only if he has been verified and thus, passed the same quality check needed for all the transport companies using the platform.
No, you cannot make any changes if the transport request has been already posted. You do not have to choose any of the offers proposed for the request, so you can always post the same transport request again, with the new changes.
The cost will change only under the following circumstances:
- Changes in the pick-up and/or delivery adresses
- Charges for waiting time or other services requested
- Major changes in the shipment details (weight, volume, number of pallets, etc)
