Fastvan is an SE start-up; ODE and SE start-ups are very different. SE marketplaces are based on freedom of markets; we do not set the prices themselves and do not choose the provider you will contract with. Our goal is to provide all the tools for trust and transactions. ODE start-ups, on the contrary, need to control their suppliers and dispatch them to their clients, in order to keep their word on the service they provide.
Given these differences and in the case of platforms of millions of users, we think that Fastvan has massive advantages allowing us to bring the same benefits of quality and transparency of price without the structural disadvantages that threaten ODE start-ups.
ODE start-ups are subject to a fundamental risk on their operating costs. Legal Courts don’t hesitate to rule their contractors as employees as they control all the experience and business done on the platform, setting the price of the suppliers and assigning them to a client Such legal risks do not apply to SE start-ups since they do not control price and behaviour of users. SE start-ups do not experience a legal risk but experience a legal issue.
