Sontra was born with the mission to refine the concept of good quality service within the Brazilian trucking industry.
We operate as a non-asset based trucking company that leverages technology to provide top class trucking services to corporate clients and transportation companies across Brazil.
Sontra compiles and analyses real time data from a large network of independent truckers and provide tools that enable truckers to make use of their spare capacity, reducing costs.
We also generate metrics to measure the benchmark spot market price for trucks across the country, streamline the payment process, provides online tracking services, and cargo insurance.
Our team and investors include former senior executives from J.P.Morgan, DHL Express, Agility Logistics, Deutsche Post and successful tech entrepreneurs.
Proprietary technology developed by Sontra.

Sontra tracking: tracking technology that allows shippers to track their freight in real time via smart phones.
Sontra Supply Finance: we finance payments to independent transporters so that they do not have to wait over 45 days for cheques to clear.
After a year of research we grasped the complex structure of the Brazilian transportation industry and created a solid team.
The management team includes Brazilian, Russian and Spanish nationals that lived in several countries sitting at C and VP level positions. The team also includes the best professionals within the trucking industry, ranging from graduates in logistics to experienced sales representatives formed in transportation 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 logistics services from the offline to the online world, and the shift in the entire computing industry from PCs to mobile devices. We have seen truckers who had never used a computer before going online for the first time using their smartphones. Therefore the opportunity to serve the incoming demand generated online.
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 growth in our network to more than 9,000 transportation providers and over 2.300 shippers. We also developed a proprietary technology that helps us to differentiate ourselves from other transportation companies.
We are now entering the second face of the execution process where we will scale the existing business to a new level.
