We are creating the first on-the-fly, multi-fleet ad hoc platoon service for the European Market.

Description


Tracks is an inclusive young tech-startup, based in Berlin, serving the road freight / trucking industry. Tracks will be one of the first platooning service providers in Europe and the world, making trucking safer, cleaner, more efficient, and fair. Tracks' services will facilitate real-time matchmaking among platoon-capable trucks, credible context-aware fuel benchmarking, and balancing financial transactions to share the benefits fairly among platoon participants.

Business Model


Tracks will facilitate platooning which occurs when two or more trucks drive very closely in each other’s slipstreams to reduce wind resistance. Platooning reduces fuel consumption, CO? emissions, accident rates, and roadway congestion. Platooning will boost the profitability of road freight carriers, but it carries a coordination cost. Tracks will generate revenue by absorbing the complexity and coordination costs for a fee.

Target


The company will work toward developing a technical proof of concept for a system to analyse and benchmark fuel consumption in trucks. We will interact with potential customers, users, and other stakeholders to build an improved understanding of the relevant challenges they face. We will also construct a strategy and plan for recruitment activities to support its expected growth and expansion.
