Uber for Trucks for Turkey

Turkey is MENA’s largest economy, with ~850,000 independent truckers and a logistics market of 73 Billion USD. However, in its current state, freight forwarding for trucking relies on many phone calls, emails, and f2f conversations. Trucking is also fragmented, with SME fleets having ~95% market share. Kamion is the Uber for Trucks for Turkey. We connect businesses that are looking for trucks, with trucks that are looking for loads. We also utilize technology to do more with fewer people and collect data.

Uber for Trucks in Turkey

What is your company going to make? Please describe your product and what it does or will do.

Our aim is to connect shippers (companies who are in need of Full Truck Load trucking services) and carriers (small trucking companies or owner-operators) more efficiently with the help of software, data science and process design.

In the FTL space, when finding suitable trucks for loads and tracking shipments, there are a lot of tasks that can be delegated to software.

We're progressively identifying repeating tasks that cause bottlenecks in Kamion's, our shippers', and our carriers' operations and building software to handle them (invoicing, payments, document / shipment tracking).

We're also aware of some key points that will allow us to have an edge if we utilize our data in the right way (pricing, personalized load recommendations), and we're designing our software to take advantage of these as we grow.
