As a startup we are looking to find new, more efficient and cheaper possibilities to transport freight by rail and road.
Our new transfer technology is making sure that resources are handelt responsibly. Compared to road haulage CO2 emissions can be reduced by 50% to 80%. With our vision and technology we have committed ourselves to sustainability.
Imagine that your containers can switch from one transport mode to the other as easily as you change from the train into a cab. This is our aspiration.
The complex transfer from rail to road needs to get easier through reduced costs, higher flexibility, without investments in new infrastructure and close to your location. This is what we imagine and are working to achieve – for all of us.
