Tracks makes predictions about fuel consumption
At the Berlin Startup Tracks, everything revolves around the fuel consumption of trucks. For its predictive fuel analyses, it uses a large amount of data from the truck and its driving environment to obtain as comprehensive an overview as possible of consumption values and the relevant influencing factors. On this basis, recommendations can be made for action regarding pricing, fleet composition and efficiency-enhancing investments. With the help of artificial intelligence, Tracks tries to save as much fuel as possible. Both the wallet of the haulage company and the environment are happy about this.

Thanks to CroP, the collection costs for shipping companies, freight forwarders, port companies, airlines and cargo insurers can be reduced by up to two thirds and at the same time the time required to assert claims can be reduced to just a few clicks.
