Posted on Friday, June 30, 2023

aifleet aspires to change the lives of some of the most underappreciated individuals in today’s workforce – truck drivers. A tech-powered logistics company, aifleet is disrupting the antiquated $800B trucking industry with human-centered AI. Our proprietary technology schedules the most efficient and satisfying routes for our drivers. We’ve already proven our model - our trucks make 60% more revenue per truck per week than industry norms, and our driver attrition rate is just 1/10th of industry averages. We are already demonstrating a model that would eliminate the perceived trucker shortage and the inefficiencies permeating the industry today.

With a $21M Series A in December and exponential revenue growth since, aifleet is at an inflection point. With our proof of concept, we are ready to build the world’s largest and most efficient trucking company. We’d love for you to join our low ego, compassionate, and mission-obsessed team during this next phase of growth.
