“I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” – Isoroku Yamamoto
This famous quote expressed by late Japanese General Yamamoto right after the Pearl Harbor attack is a great analogy to explain the Logistics industry today. More than 70 years later the fear of having awakened a sleeping giant is evident for executives inside incumbent transport companies.
Welcome to our news release, we love that you are here. “Across Logistics” is a monthly publication where we scour the Transport & Logistics news to bring you the most disruptive projects, latest technologies being tested in the field and the most controversial issues that the industry is facing right now.
On March 18th 2013, we received our initial investment and on that date the idea of Transmetrics turned into a real company. Since then we have grown our dedicated team to almost 20 highly-skilled professionals. We have partnered with several companies from the industry to verify our idea which have resulted in a number of proofs of concept (PoC) and implementations with leading cargo transport companies. We have received several acknowledgements of success by Forbes, Pioneers Festival, EIT ICT Labs Startup Activation and several other organizations. After spending 4 years building the product, completing PoCs and implementing our solution in a number of logistics companies we have been constantly seeking new ways of improving and optimizing efficiency in the industry. We have learned and discovered a lot. However, there is still a lot more to learn and discover, which we would be happy to do together with you, dear readers.
