While digitizes road transportation, Diginak does not neglect to add the good aspects of conventional transportation to this digitalization unlike its competitors. Considering the interests of all stakeholders in the logistics process, it does not exclude agencies and brokers from the transportation process as in a standard digital transportation. Therefore, it builds its operations with a business model where everyone wins in the relationship between the loader, the freight carrier and the agencies. Due to its different approach to digital roadtransportation and its goals, we are on the side of Diginak in this journey with our investments and support.

In this way, they ensure that the right drugs that should be given to the patients for their treatment meet the patient more quickly. We support Organo-ID with our investments and assistance to realize this great goal they plan to achieve for humanity.
