The absence of choice and real time information lead to an inefficient trucking industry in Brazil: 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 marketplace with the mission to connect 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.
