Presentation of the German start-ups:

Trailer Dynamics develops Newton-e-trailer, the next generation semi-trailer. It is aerodynamically optimized and has an integrated electric drivetrain which does not only recuperate energy but also provides substantial support to the diesel driven tractor. This support is realized by combining the onboard control unit with our cloud-based predictive software solution called Predictive Drive Control. It will allow the vehicle to evaluate the data collected by its sensors and those provided by third party services (maps, weather, topography, traffic info etc.) in order to make the most efficient use of its energy resources and provide as much support as possible to the tractor. Newton-e-trailer will allow diesel savings of up to 50% and significant reduction of CO2-emissions.The Trailer Dynamics Team is specialized in aerodynamics, e-mobility and drivetrain control. The company holds extensive patents and has partnered up with important industry partners such as SAP and research partners such as PEM, RWTH Aachen.

AINDEX connects logistic and real-estate business. The AINDEX plattform calculates a personalized attractiveness index of a real estate depending on the proximity to the locations of interest and availability of desired infrastructure. This is achieved by combining from one side complex routing algorithms including public transportation and traffic reports and from the other side public available big data such as governmental statistics, geo-data and social media. In urban development this concept is known as walkability index and because of it´s traffic reducing nature it has a strong impact on urban logistics. Currently the solution has attracted interest of several city developers and major real-estate companies with whom we are in conversation.

Heuremo is the new software provider for holistic logistics software with the focus on the essentials that matters: Modularly applicable software elements to face the individual customer needs. Due to the "Heuremo 80 | 20 rule", customers get individual software, based on proved, standardized software features, but iteratively customized on the customers’ needs and user wishes. This results in a software stack as needed with a comprehensive pricing. Heurmo already started many projects with strong partners. For a globally active steel distributor Heuremo developed a software tool for automatically created loading plans which considers the stackability, weight- and volume restrictions and restrictions due to transport safety for not standardized products. In another project, Heuremo offered a mixture of the tours planning feature, the digital loading plan feature and a special cost explorer tool for transports, to reduce the time for the offer- and dispatching process to just 30%.

Cargo Bay is a freight forwarding / freight administration portal (software as a service) for industry & trade and transport companies. Cargo-Bay connects shippers directly with their own forwarding companies as well as with many other transport companies. Via Cargo Bay, companies have the opportunity to lend their freight directly to their own freight forwarders, tender it out in their own closed network or even be visible in an open network for all transport companies. In addition, Cargo Bay offers the option of directly sending the transport order as well as managing and analyzing the freight. Cargo Bay can also be offered as a white label solution. Cargo-Bay is not an online / digital forwarding agency and no freight exchange specifically. Cargo-Bay is a transparent logistics portal, where the shippers and the transport operator know each other. This clearly sets Cargo-Bay apart from the other freight marketplaces and thus the platform has a unique position in this segment.
