Tracks uses artificial intelligence to predict and manage one of the biggest uncertainties of the road freight industry - the fuel consumption of trucks. Our predictive fuel analytics enable truck fleet operators to save fuel, reduce CO2 emissions, and improve their bottom line.
OUR SERVICES, YOUR BENEFITS
We activate the data available from trucks and their environment with machine learning methods to predict fuel consumption and provide visibility of the factors that impact it.
Our Predictive Fuel Analytics allow truck fleet operators to use their fleet data for strategic decision making about fuel management, pricing, and investments in fuel saving measures.
Understanding the fuel consumption of your fleet is the first step towards optimizing it. Gain actionable insights on the fuel efficiency of your vehicles and drivers and compare it to other fleets.
Prior knowledge of the expected fuel consumption per trip of your fleet allows you to price your trips more effectively and avoid negative trips. Get access to our data-driven predictions of fuel spent per trip.
Reduce uncertainty and maximize the impact of investments to increase fuel efficiency. We improve your decision making by providing you with fleet specific recommendations and a clear ROI for your fuel saving interventions.
Platooning is the future of trucking, making the road freight industry cleaner, safer, and more efficient. Enable your trucks to platoon with any other fleet by balancing fuel savings in a fair and transparent way.
Many truck fleets use descriptive fuel analytics tools, which inform fleet operators about a truck’s average fuel consumption or a driver’s driving style on a particular trip. However, descriptive tools only tell fleet operators what happened, not why something happened.
DIAGNOSTIC FUEL ANALYTICS
Diagnostic fuel analytics tools such as driver scores link factors like braking patterns with fuel consumption data to find an answer to why a driver’s fuel consumption ended up the way it did. These analytics show the isolated root-cause of a problem but rarely consider other factors that might impact consumption in the future. Therefore, they are unsuitable for strategic decision making.
PREDICTIVE FUEL ANALYTICS
Tracks’ Predictive Fuel Analytics take into account a variety of internal truck data and external data to provide a global visibility on fuel consumption and the factors that impact it. By providing their truck data, fleet owners, managers, and dispatchers receive fleet-specific actionable insights as a basis for strategic decisions on trip pricing, fleet composition, and efficiency investments to save fuel, reduce CO2-emissions and improve their bottom line.
TRUCKING OF THE FUTURE
Truck platooning is the linking of two or more trucks in a convoy using Vehicle-to-Vehicle communication technology and automated driving support. This allows the vehicles to draft very closely behind each other to reduce wind resistance which leads to fuel savings, and CO₂ emissions reductions.
Trucks need to be equipped with V2V-technology in order to join platoons. V2V-technologies are based on Wi-Fi and establish a short-range digital connection between trucks which links them by a virtual tow-bar.
Truck platooning will make the road freight industry safer, cleaner, and more efficient.
7% — 10%

Raise your profit margins by up to 20% through fuel savings
Help the industry lower CO2 emissions by 3.2m tons per year in Europe
Lower the number of truck accidents by up to 30% with automated driving
Following the commercial deployment in many US states, platooning is also on the way to revolutionize the European road freight industry. Several promising tests are currently being run including projects from different original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and the EU-funded ENSEMBLE project, to develop the core platooning technology. These developments will allow platooning between trucks of different manufacturing brands and fleets on a technical level. Yet, a key barrier will remain. There is no incentive for different fleets to platoon together as fuel savings are unbalanced due to the dynamics of platooning.
OUR PLATOONING SERVICE
Tracks’ platooning service tackles the challenge of platooning between different fleets and vehicle brands to unleash the full potential of this technology. Based on our capabilities to predict fuel consumption, our platooning service calculates the exact fuel savings of the trucks while platooning. These highly accurate fuel analytics enable a fair and transparent financial transaction between trucks of different fleets to balance the savings.
