SUMMARY

A statistical view of the global scenario shows an opportunistic landscape for the tech start-ups in the trucking industry, which needs a digital revolution to synchronize its supply chain and freight activities in order to minimize losses. The vast opportunity has led to VC and private equity funding in the sector pouring in. In 2017, the industry raised a funding of more than $500 million,  a 100% YOY increase. Digitization is fuelling the prospects of Electric trucks and self-drive trucks, something which is already being successfully operated in Sweden by the start-up Einride.

Majority of the investment in this industry is done by large-scale e-commerce companies or retail chains (e.g. Amazon, Lidl, Flipkart etc.). The bulk of growth, however, is concentrated in China and US, where advanced technology, growing infrastructure, and demand has been the major driver in the rise of these startups.
