Kamion is making trucking better through software, powerful analytics, and process design. In every step of our product lifecycle, we measure how a feature can add efficiency to our internal and external stakeholders.
We are tackling a huge problem:
Turkey is MENA’s largest economy, with ~850,000 independent truckers and a logistics TAM of 73 Billion USD. However, in its current state, freight forwarding for trucking includes many phone calls, emails, and f2f conversations. Trucking is also fragmented, with SME fleets having ~95% market share.
