New Logistics Technology Startup in the USA “Doft” Looks Candidate to Become the Uber of Trucks with its Innovative Business Model
Doft, which was established to serve 400,000 individual truck owners and small shipping companies in the USA, entered the market in a very ambitious way. With its structure similar to Doft, Uber and Lyft, it aims to rapidly expand into the logistics transportation sector, which has a total value of approximately 80 billion USD.
While the majority of Doft’s tools on its digital platform are based in California, it plans to be able to serve across the US in the near future.
Doft’s earnings model is determined as a service fee of 5 USD per freight transport service performed on the platform. Regardless of the value, size and distance of the cargo, the service fee of 5 USD per transport does not change.
Former IBM engineer, new Doft CEO Dmitri Fedorchenko, with the system they developed, beyond creating added value in terms of both time and financial gain in the logistics sector, there will be a return load for trucks that return empty, which is common in the transportation system in the USA -without a return load-, thus creating an important environmental impact. states that added value will be created. Thanks to Doft, a 15% to 25% reduction is expected in trucks that return empty without a return load in the first place.
Doft is preparing to make a strong impact in the world logistics industry as an effective digital logistics bridge between Freight forwarders and SMEs in the US logistics industry.
