How did we build a complex marketplace for Adampol, a company as part of Hyundai Glovis, in less than a year?
What was the project about?
The client came to us with a specific business idea that he wanted to implement within 8 months from the start of work. The project involved the construction of a complex logistics marketplace that would enable servicing of European markets.
Adampol, despite extensive knowledge and many years of experience in the forwarding industry, had yet to gain experience in building complex software from scratch. In addition, the client’s business model was still in the evaluation phase, and the marketing strategy was at the time of creation. Due to these factors, Adampol sought a partner for comprehensive support during the project implementation.

Who have we helped?
Adampol is part of Hyundai Glovis, a global logistics company supplying ocean transportation logistics, cargo space, loading/unloading, and packaging services across the globe. Adampol, with its 1300 employees and 16 divisions in Europe, specializes in car and cargo transportation with a yearly revenue of 130 million USD.
What was the challenge?
The client wanted to develop, deploy and maintain a complex marketplace consisting of 3 applications. From the beginning, the project assumed expansion into foreign markets and a gradual increase in user traffic.
- Prilo.com – app for logistics carriers and receivers.
- Customer Service app – for managing the marketplace features available internally for its employees.
- Mobile app – available for truck drivers to report the shipment’s current status.
What have we done?
The client was provided with a cloud-native system 100% based on the cloud, which allows for handling completed and commissioned transports from the beginning to the end of the process. Thanks to the platform’s general availability for other companies (including those previously not cooperating with Adampol), the client can acquire new contractors. Based on transaction data collected in the application, he also gains access to full analytics.
Ultimately, after building an appropriate user base, the use of the application is to be paid, which will generate additional financial benefits.
