Trucksters - A new innovation s-curve for long haul transportation systems
Road freight transportation accounts for 7% of total GHG emission globally, that is twice the rate of aviation. To meet the Paris requirements, restricting global temperature rising by 2°C compared to preindustrial levels, rapid decarbonization of the economy is necessary.
The long haul transportation industry had seen little innovation in the past 50 years, benefited little from the technological revolution of the 21st century and remained a high capital intensity, low margin business in Europe. Long haul transportation service is in ever greater demand thanks to the increasing commercial activity and complexity of the European Economy. What if transportation services could be done faster, cheaper, more sustainable and crucially more humane for the drivers? A new innovation S-curve is proposed and led by Trucksters, providing fast relay system bringing transportation to the 21st century, as well as significant gains for the customers, drivers and global climate. Transit times could be reduced by up to 50% at equal cost and we strive to bring all our drivers home each day by leveraging our proprietary technology used for smart route planning
