VTV.vn - Transport companies will now have an easier time looking for customers, thanks to a brand new application that's been developed by a young Vietnamese startup.

Nghiem has just transported goods from Vung Tau to HCMC. To avoid going back with an empty boat, instead of going around to look for customers, he can use a free smartphone app to do the work. This is the new product of IZIFIX, a Vietnamese startup.

"This is a breakthrough in transportation. It's like a market that's easy to access. If you need something, you just have to check the app", Vu The Nghiem - Dong Nam Bo Services and Transportation Co. Ltd. - said.

After starting in October last year, IZIFIX now has more than 2400 members, and has been involved in thousands of successful contracts.

"I only began using Izifix recently and I've already made 10 deals. It helps me utilise manpower really effectively", Mai Thanh Dat - Thanh Dat SSC Transportation Co. - said.

The app was created by young people and has received assistance from the government.

"We will provide support for this app to expand and attract more transport companies to connect and help facilitate smooth transactions", Nguyen Van Cong - Deputy Minister of Transport - said.

Currently the app supports transport contracts by land, river and sea. The Ministry of Transport has also provided developers with information about the port system to improve the app.
