Moving forward together: How entrepreneurs can profit from ONLOGIST

What are your resolutions for the new year and decade?

Maybe you want to break new ground professionally and reposition yourself? Starting your own business and thus successfully becoming self-employed is much easier today than it used to be; after all, the Internet offers an almost inexhaustible supply of ideas for ambitious founders.

Where can I find initial information?

A good first point of contact are platforms like Here, prospective self-employed people not only find basic knowledge, but also concrete tips and assistance for all phases of the start-up, from the first idea to the preparation of a business plan, to possibilities for financing the start-up and winning customers. For example, there is a very detailed, easy-to-read basic article that deals with the most important aspects of setting up a business and gives concrete tips on what founders need to pay attention to.

What can I expect?

We also have a lucrative tip for prospective or already established entrepreneurs: freelancers and self-employed individuals can register with the Hamburg-based software company ONLOGIST as service providers and generate additional turnover by transporting vehicles. What sounds like a small niche at first glance turns out to be a business model with great potential on closer inspection: More than 400,000 transport orders are taken over by over 9,000 registered service providers per year.

ONLOGIST was founded in 2014 by Felix Müller and Moritz Pagendarm and has since developed into Europe's leading marketplace for vehicle transfers. This success is partly due to the fact that the company offers other mobility service providers the opportunity to use the digital market platform of ONLOGIST as a further pillar and to generate additional orders and thus revenues.

Our advice

Let your good intentions become reality. Register a business, start your own company and count on reliable partners and long-term customer relationships from the very beginning. Find a niche in which you can establish yourself and, as with ONLOGIST, use synergies and existing structures to be able to concentrate fully on your own core business. Be courageous and go your own way into professional independence; it is certainly not always easy, but it is worth it!
