Petrunin Alexander, CEO at GetTransport
Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
Petrunin Alexander: GetTransport service was upscaled from the initial service: while managing the online-service aimed at private passenger transportation we understood that there is bid demand for cargo transportation search also, so it makes sense to propose such service to the internet users.
Great Companies: What are the various services provided by GetTransport?
Petrunin Alexander: GetTransport provides the usable search for clients and providers of ground cargo transportation services
Great Companies: What makes GetTransport different from hundreds of other similar service providers?
Petrunin Alexander:We offer tender as the most transparent and advantageous price denomination system, as well as the usability is access to all information and documents related to the bookings made via the service. And the last but not least is the ease of searching for the transportation offer or request by setting the desirable region and criteria.
Great Companies: What were the struggles and challenges you faced and how did you overcome them?
Petrunin Alexander:We have put many efforts to assemble a strong team that can make a consistently good product, as well as finding partners who can achieve the same goals in the highly unstable conditions of modern business. So now we can guarantee the high quality of our service in any situation.
Great Companies: How do you plan to grow in the future? What does 5 years down the line look like for GetTransport?
Petrunin Alexander: 5 years ago GetTransport was at its early start. Now we plan to enter new regions and continents (Asia Pacific, North America, Europe & U.K.) and develop the new business streams by attracting the providers of railway, airway and sea transportations to use our service.
Great Companies: If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?
