Maponia helps transport & logistics companies increase their ROI offering truck drivers time and autonomy by efficient route planning.
Why did you pick this project to work on?
Having a common hobby, me and my partner had the opportunity to travel in the truck cabin. Thus, we discovered how many challenges the truck drivers have during the trip. And we decided to help them by bringing the technology in the truck.
How could the cross-country transportation system change if people started widely using your app?
First, the drivers would be more autonomous, they would not depend so much on dispatchers, they would be more relaxed at the wheel and would save time by traveling the routes more efficiently. Then, the transport companies will increase their profitability by reducing costs and allocating resources to increase the volume of freight transported.
What are the next steps for you and your startup?
In the short term our focus is to develop a viable and valuable product, to grow and to monetize; also to attract funding for scaling in Europe. Long term we plan to change the perspective on freight transport with a disruptive approach.
