An essential boost
“Despite having some experience in my father-in-law’s company, MagicPallet was the first business I created all by myself and I obviously needed mentoring. A member of my family introduced me to the community of business leaders ‘Réseau Entreprendre Occitanie Garonne’, where I got the winner’s prize. I heard about Créalia through them”, recalls the entrepreneur.
“I am very thankful that Créalia gave me a EUR 30 000 loan on trust for the development of MagicPallet. This loan, which I will soon pay off, has allowed me to recruit a business developer at a critical stage of expansion as well as partly finance the developments of the MagicPallet platform”, says Mr. Robert who now leads a team of 20 employees while he adds with enthusiasm: “MagicPallet was very well received right from the beginning. I could not imagine it would be so successful”.
Cost and environment friendly thanks to MagicPallet’s collaborative DNA
Consumers pay according to the number of palettes relocated; the more they use the platform, the cheaper the price goes. "Our tool puts an end to very expensive costs for relocating pallets. Where a carrier, distributor or manufacturer paid up to 1 euro per relocated pallet, the cost is now between 30 and 70 cents depending on the volume of pallets exchanged”, says the Montpellier entrepreneur.
