Improving the carriers’ living conditions
Trucksters’ transport service allows truck drivers to sleep more often at home, as they only drive shorter stretches of a longer route and then exchange semi-trailers with another truck to carry the goods in the opposite direction at relay points. Thanks to these relays, their quality of life is improved and the transport service perceived by their customers is faster and more cost-efficient than traditional services.
With a trucking system based on Big Data and Artificial Intelligence, the Spanish company operate as an airline through corridors and are able to achieve air transport timings at ground transport prices. Trucksters manage to keep trucks running continuously, getting the most out of each trip.
