When we look at road transport in the world, 70% of freight transport is done by road. In Turkey, where 859 thousand trucks are on the road, 90% of the transportation is done by highways. 1/3 of the approximately 450 thousand FTL transportations made per day are contracted transportation and 300 thousand transportations are realized in the spot market.
95 percent of the 859 thousand trucks on the roads belong to individuals. A domestic truck waits 2.5 days to find a new load. 37% of them have to return empty despite waiting. On the other hand, 82 percent of our trucks going to Europe have to return empty. This situation not only affects truckers’ budgets negatively, but also increases CO2 emissions, which is the main cause of global warming.
In the light of all these data, it becomes inevitable to keep up with the digital transformation in the world and to resort to digital solutions supported by increased intelligence in order to reduce the waits in the sector, to increase efficiency and to ensure sustainability.
