Our vision is to revolutionize freight transport across Europe while improving the quality of life for truck drivers and reducing the burden on freight forwarders. We believe that transports can be made more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly by swapping truck trailers along routes between different carriers. Our unique IT solution makes it possible to turn this vision into reality.
MANSIO was founded with the clear objective of transforming the logistics industry by introducing innovative solutions that improve the efficiency, sustainability and overall quality of freight transportation. Our company originated in Aachen, Germany and we currently operate in the German market. Our long-term vision is to become a pan-European leader in the logistics industry and expand our reach across Europe. We want to revolutionize the way goods are transported by making it cheaper, faster, safer and more environmentally friendly. At MANSIO, we believe in improving the lives of truck drivers while reshaping the future of transportation.
“For centuries, short transport durations were achieved in the European postal system by changing horses. MANSIO now brings this stagecoach principle into the 21st century: in this transport system, the trailer is handed over from forwarder to forwarder along a transport route. This makes transports more cost-effective, faster and more environmentally friendly.”
“Digitization is a decisive competitive factor in the transportation industry. If freight forwarders want to remain independent and efficient, they need the right tools. MANSIO fits into existing IT landscapes and supports forwarders in the simple and transparent handling of encounter traffic.”
“Relay transports are cost-efficient and attractive for truck drivers. They are therefore widespread among logistics groups with numerous branches. Until now, however, it has been difficult for medium-sized freight forwarders to carry out such transports. With MANSIO, freight forwarders work together and jointly benefit from the advantages.”
