Trucknet Enterprise (TASE: TRAN), a digital platform for optimising the use of freight capacity and avoiding empty transport rides, has joined the Corporate Partnership Board of the International Transport Forum (ITF). Trucknet and the ITF will work together on transport decarbonisation, supply chain innovation and digitalisation.
Trucknet provides a digital platform that enables logistics and transport companies to reduce freight costs and save resources by arranging optimised shipments in all transport modes using artificial intelligence, business intelligence and machine learning. The Trucknet platform includes an online tool for operators to calculate the CO2 emissions of their fleet.
The ITF is an intergovernmental organisation with 63 member countries that facilitates global dialogue for better transport. It acts as a think tank for member governments and organises an Annual Summit of transport ministers. The Corporate Partnership Board (CPB) is the ITF’s platform for engaging with the private sector and enriching global transport policy discussion with a business perspective.
Young Tae Kim, Secretary-General of the ITF, said:
“I welcome Trucknet as the latest member of our Corporate Partnership Board. Efficient but flexible freight transport is critical for making global supply chains more resilient and sustainable. Trucknet’s cutting-edge technology helps avoid wasteful empty runs while giving freight forwarders additional options and reducing operators’ costs. This is an important lever to reduce the emissions in hard-to-decarbonise transport modes like heavy road freight. Trucknet’s frontline experience will help to inform the work of the ITF in this area. I look forward to working with Hanan Friedman and his team.”
Hanan Friedman, CEO of Trucknet, said:
“It is an honour for Trucknet to join the Corporate Partnership Board and work together with concerned stakeholders from all over the world to ensure creating a path towards a sustainable global transport sector. We offer our technology for reducing heavy-duty vehicles from our roads as a stepping stone on the way to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.”
