About Tradus

Heavy machinery is big business? Yes! The global trade volume of used equipment is over $ 400 billion per year and the segment is growing double digits. Martin Scheepbouwer (CEO Classifieds, Naspers) is keen to capture the opportunity and starting a classifieds venture specifically for heavy machinery. Jorre Bonjer (ex-Bain & Company and with the OLX Group since 2013) is leading this new venture also known as ´Tradus´. The team has the sole objective to grow the business with the speed of light. Tradus received a multimillion investment from multinational Naspers, but still benefits the freedom of an Amsterdam based start-up.
