Tracks

Tracks will help make trucking safer, cleaner, more efficient, and fair

Platooning

Platooning occurs when two or more trucks are connected by Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) technologies and are drafting closely behind each other to reduce wind resistance. The slipstream effect reduces fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. The close V2V-connection increases safety and reduces the amount of space the truck claims on the road way.

Tracks will provide services to help trucks find each other, build platoons, and share the benefits.

Reduced Fuel Consumption

Fuel consumption is a great concern for road freight carriers. Fuel accounts for a significant portion of carrier expense. Managing fuel consumption is key.

Reduced CO₂ Emissions

The road freight sector emits carbon dioxide, particulate matter, and other noxious gases. These emissions contribute to global climate change.

Reduced Accident Rates

Driver inattentiveness sometimes contributes to accidents while driving. In time, platooning will let drivers of trailing trucks focus on other work while en route.

Reduced Congestion

Platooning lets trucks drive much closer together, safely, at high speed. The reduced distance between them increases the space available for others.

Tracks' Platooning Services

Tracks is a provider of platooning services. We are working to become the premier provider of multi-fleet, ad hoc platooning services in Europe.


Tracks services will facilitate real-time matchmaking between trucks, credible context-aware fuel benchmarking, and balancing financial transactions.


Tracks services will boost the positive impact of platooning for each driver and carrier of road freight.

Real-time Matchmaking

Tracks will let drivers start their trips and then find other trucks to create platoons with. There will be no need to follow cumbersome or inflexible schedules.

Credible Fuel Bench-marking

Tracks will measure fuel consumption while trucks are driving. By rigorous benchmarking, Tracks can determine what the actual, real-world fuel savings from platooning are. 

Balancing Financial Transactions

Once a platoon has concluded, Tracks will share the measured fuel savings fairly among the platoon participants. There will be no need to drive for the best position in the platoon.
