Transmetrics: The Road from Learning to Sharing

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.
