Every year billions of euros evaporate as a result of inefficiencies in the logistics sector. It is a necessary evil that belongs to the industry: it is impossible to plan 100% utilization, 100% of the time.
UTURN believes this can be done differently. If trucks were transparent, you would see that about one third of all cargo space on the road remains untapped. All that empty space costs the carrier money. The customer pays for this too. And ultimately society. Trucking in the Netherlands represents a significant share of total CO2 emissions. One third of the trucks stuck in traffic are in fact redundant.
What would happen if even a small portion of the inefficiencies in the logistics sector would be reduced?
