We believe that the absence of choice and real time information leads to an inefficient trucking industry: dead heading trucks, lack of real time pricing information, lack of transit times, high trucking costs.
Sontra was born as a web and mobile based market place with the mission to disrupt the Brazilian trucking industry. We operate as a freight broker leveraging technology to match freight with trucks though geo localisation technology. We compile and analyse real time data from a large network of independent truckers and provide tools that enable truckers to make use of their spare capacity, reducing cost, and speeding up transit times.
We also generate metrics to measure the benchmark spot market price for trucks across the country, we help to streamline the payment process and we provide online tracking services.
Our team and investors include former senior executives from J.P.Morgan, DHL Express, Agility Logistics, and Deutsche Post .

www.SontraCargo.com.br web based platform that marches freight with trucks using real time data. SontraCargo is used by hundreds of shippers to process and track their freight, and by thousands of truckers to find freight for their vehicles.
After a year of research we grasped the complex structure of the Brazilian trucking industry and built a solid team.
Sontra´s management team includes Brazilian, Russian, and Spanish nationals that lived in several countries sitting at C and VP level positions in multinational corporates. The team also includes the best professionals within the trucking industry, ranging from graduates in logistics to experienced sales representatives formed in trucking companies.
We believe that there is a revolution going on in the trucking industry right now. The region is sitting between two huge shifts; the shift in the demand for trucking services from the offline to the online world, and the shift in the entire computing industry from PCs to mobile devices. Therefore the opportunity to serve the incoming demand generated online and to solve existing problems by providing real time trucking information.
We tested our main hypothesis during the first 7 months of operations. We proved that our model works with a monthly revenue growth of circa 50% and an exponential network growth. Today over 9,000 trucks and 2.300 shippers operates in Sontra´s market place. We also developed a proprietary technology that differentiate ourselves from the competition worldwide.
We are now entering the second face of the execution process where we will scale the existing business to a new level.
Market size: The heavy freight transportation market in Brazil is estimated at $25 billion with a $15bn flowing through independent transporters and +2 million independent truckers.
