Increasing pilots with electrified road transport or other fuels are the focus of diverse forwarders in Germany. The main issue for scaling those is the infrastructure for charging or other innovative approaches. This is no typical startup topic as infrastructure is an ivestment intense challenge. But we are interested to find international scaleups that have solutions with hardware or software approaches to enable electrification of road transportation to push companies from pilots to scaling.

General Requirements:

  • proven technology
  • existing customers in other countries
  • scaling focus

Additional Company Information:
