About Brenger 

Brenger is a scale-up based in Amsterdam, founded in October 2016 by Wisse and Derk. Our transport platform simplifies the process of transporting large items such as bikes, cupboards, and sofas. By utilizing the empty space in vans already on the road, Brenger aims "to fill every courier van on the road." This mission creates a triple win: making large item transport easy and affordable, providing additional income for our couriers, and reducing CO2 emissions by minimizing kilometers driven. Since our inception, we have eliminated more than 14,885,871 unnecessary kilometers, saving 3,187 tonnes of CO2 [last update: impact report 2022].

Since our launch in 2016, we have grown considerably. Brenger started in the Netherlands, recently also became active in Belgium and Germany, and we are about to scale up even further. There are some exciting years ahead in which we want to grow substantially and professionalize further to cope with this growth. In short: an ambitious team with big plans to roll out Brenger throughout Europe!
