Since their launch in 2015 in Sweden Budbee has delivered an ambitious growth and attracted strong investments backing. Budbee’s arrival in the Netherlands shows its strong positioning as expansion market for Swedish companies, and especially in the field of e-commerce and logistics. By setting up their office, team and launching with NL customers, Budbee has shown they are capable of making a strong and successful market entry.
Budbee has an innovative approach to last mile logistics, by making sure that the consumer has flexibility and control over their delivery and assuring that this can be done in the most sustainable way to minimize distances travelled and focus on CO2 reduction. This innovative Log-Tech company, the next generation companies to follow the big Fintech movement, received the Swedish Chamber Entrepreneurs Award 2019.

Jørgen Höppener, General Manager at Budbee
“You couldn’t tell from my name but I was born and raised in the Netherlands and lived for a short while in Italy in my youth. I was 30 years old and a big fan of football. After finishing Econometrics in Rotterdam, I went into strategy consulting, because I wanted to work with analytics and business. Being in the consultancy business I worked with many different companies ranging from very large corporates to smaller startups and scaleups in many different sectors, such as e-commerce, retail, transport and insurance. That has given me the leverage to be able to do this job that I am doing today at Budbee. I moved to Budbee because it is a great challenge to actually build something from scratch. We offer a great product that I really believe is needed on the market. In the short time that we have been on the Dutch market I have been able to build up and scale my own team."
