About Us

Frete.com is eliminating inefficiencies in the trucking industry

We use technology to better connect carriers to owner operators, reversing the current scenario of high idle capacity of trucks, lack of safety and extreme bureaucracy. This is possible through digitalization.

Making idle capacity more accessible saves up to 25% in transportation costs, increases owner operator profit by 50% and reduces CO² emissions.

SAFETY

We help carriers to reduce freight robbery

Every year, freight robbery generates over R$ 1 billion in losses for carriers. There is a country wide safety concern in road freigh transport and we take the problem very seriously.

Using big data and machine learning, we analyze past crime rates to identify routes, times, neighborhoods and types of cargo that present the highest risk. We support our clients in avoiding them.

We have reduced by 25% the volume of freight robbery, saving millions of dollars for carriers.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

The concern for the environment is part of our roots.

One of the pillars that motivated the birth of Frete.com was to substantially reduce the idle capacity of trucks transiting the country.

Years later, through machine learning, we managed to reduce by 50% that idle capacity, which corresponds to a reduction of 20 million tons of CO² emitted into the atmosphere every year. And we keep on counting…

Every year, this is our contribution to reducing CO² emissions.

Our business also generates a positive social impact in Brazil, by increasing the income of owner operators and improving overall safety.
