Culture at a Hyper-Growth Scale-Up: the sennder story

sennder is Europe’s leading freight forwarder, offering shippers access to their connected fleet of thousands of trucks. And they've undergone something of a meteoric rise - to give you an idea of scale and success, since being founded in 2015, Sennder has raised more than $260 million, and is now valued at over $1 billion.

Mergers and Acquisitions have been a major lever in their growth, and in this episode we discuss the implications of these on their company culture - in June 2020 sennder merged with French competitor Everoad, and acquired Uber Freight’s European business last September as well.

We're joined by Saskia Bille, Head of Culture at sennder, to discuss all of this and more!
