Company Overview:

Meight is a seed-stage tech startup based in Portugal that just raised €3.5 million to make a dent in the Road Freight industry. We’re building the first data-powered platform for Road Freight, a vertical software solution for small Road Freight carriers.

Road Freight is the largest distribution channel in the world. The $5 trillion industry is expected to double in the next 30 years. Road Freight has been a key enabler for humanity for the last century and is now facing disruptive challenges in sustainability, efficiency, and technology adoption.

We help Road Freight teams make a leap from being low-value employees spending time putting out fires and being single points of failure to adding value to operations where they interact with AI systems to build up company knowledge and market differentiation. A turn-key SaaS solution with no implementation costs and no lengthy ad-hoc customizations that allows small carriers to become digital at a fraction of the cost of an on-premise ERP or Transport Management System (TMS).
