Quicargo was founded by Israeli natives Avishai Trabelsi (CEO) and Roni Liberman (CPO) in the summer of 2016. Before founding the logistics startup, Avishai was the CEO of a family owned-transporting company in Israel. “When I realized that 50% of trucks in the industry were running empty, I decided to quit the family business and solve the problem on a global scale.” Empty, or partially empty trucks cause lots of inefficiencies for transportation companies. Besides that, because of this there are more trucks on the road than necessary meaning that we could contribute to reducing CO2 emmisions by eliminating those empty trucks. This is how our mission ''no more empty trucks'' was born!
Quicargo has since raised over 5M and are already connected to 3,000+ businesses to more than 6,000 trucks from 270 carriers. We’ve saved up to 215,000 km of empty truck space on the road and thereby reduced CO2 emission by 3% within our network alone.
Our headquarters are located in Amsterdam and we’re currently planning our launch in the Benelux and Germany. We’re extremely proud and humbled by what we’ve managed to achieve in this short amount of time and are excited to see what the future holds for us and the trucking industry.
Every year trucks running empty or partially empty create over half a trillion dollars of damage every year worldwide. It is a waste of fuel, it is a waste of cargo space, it increases pollution and traffic congestions causing more harm than we care to know.
Our smart platform tackles the problem by connecting trucks that have unused cargo space with businesses that are in need of transportation for their goods - all while reducing traffic, CO2 emissions and economic damages!
