Finally, a way to reduce the number of heavy trucks on major roads!
A digital company has come up with a way to reduce the number of trucks on our roads by using machine learning and smart matching algorithms to create a marketplace where shippers, agents and transport carriers can connect.
EmptyTrips matches, connects and enables those with spare capacity in their vehicles (trucks, trains, ships or planes) with those who require goods to be transported.
It is listed as Africa’s first open, digital transport market place of its kind.
The company creates an online marketplace where you can find a massive pool of vetted carriers and get bids on your cargo so you can make use of the sharing enterprise economy to safely, securely and significantly lower your transport costs.
Founder Benji Coetzee explains how the system works.
It is all about optimising already existing assets, trying to improve the utilisation for the owner of the asset also trying to provide the saving to the user which is the cargo, owner, traders ...it is all about reducing waste - good for the environment and cost.Benji Coetzee, CEO and founder of EmptyTrips
