Let’s learn a bit more about DRVR!

DRVR

DRVR wants to reduce the cost of logistics for companies by helping them with their fleet management. Currently the industry is struggling to handle the increased size and complexity of commercial vehicle management.

It offers a solution that can scale easily with the company but provides flexibility for individual requirements. The company uses telematic technology that allows a central hub to monitor the vehicle’s performance, driver behaviour, unscheduled stops and more.

Founder David Henderson explained the company well in a previous e27 feature. He said,

“Sharing more details about the product, he said: “Suppose you have a fleet of trucks delivering goods. As soon as a truck leaves your warehouse, you lose the visibility of it. You don’t know where exactly the truck is, how it’s being driven, or if someone is pinching your cargo or valuable fuel, etc. What if you could make a digital clone of the truck and put that on the internet? You could suddenly see in real time information about the way it is being driven. This is what we do. We can also help you predict if it’s going to break down and help you service it. We take this raw data and we transform it into actionable knowledge.”

The company raised about US$450,000 at the end of last year.
