Strada Routing is an AI logistics startup
operating out of Harvard University in Cambridge, MA.
We were founded in January 2020 with the goal of combating
inefficiency in the trucking industry.
Since then, we have received funding from prestigious organizations, built record-breaking routing models, and developed deep connections within the industry.
We are growing and moving quickly, and always looking for talented developers and researchers to join the team.
Strada Routing builds AI systems
to automate load bundling and bidding for truck shipments
across many customers with respect to a wide variety of costs and
By considering all implications of a load/lane choice we minimize deadhead in both full- and less-than-truckload shipments. By aggregating driver and shipper qualifications and logs, we cut down on dwell-time and ensure drivers are treated with respect and paid on time. By studying the market and environment in detail, we make sure loads are competitively priced. By squeezing inefficiencies out of the system, we hope to lower rates for shippers while making sure carriers' fleets are used to their full capacity.
Our AI-powered platform designs and prices unparalleled routes that keep the wheels turning at minimal cost and with respect to real-world constraints. While our proprietary tech is academically revolutionary, we are using it to solve the problems of actual people.
Strada is built to save carriers and shippers time—a vision reflected in our Customer Interface. Carriers need only tell us the needs and specs of their fleet to receive routes and rate forecasts tailored to their business. Our system works in real-time and requires no coding or redundant reentry.
As soon as you upload this information, we get to work designing a solution. We build a detailed picture of your environment that takes into account rates, demands, and conditions along the lanes your drivers might travel. We find a number of shippers who fit your needs and look at their dwell times, facilities, and credentials.
This information is passed to our state-of-the-art AI system, which designs a load bundle that minimizes deadhead, dwell-time, and costs while making sure you always deal with trustworthy shippers at high rates. We use real-time market and route data to predict the bid, time, and costs of this route.
After having found, vetted, and priced a route, we make it easy for carriers to accept the job and get paid on time. For easy navigation, we convert the route to Google Map directions, which can be visualized or downloaded directly from our website. With Strada routing, you can find, bid on, and start running a route in less than a minute.
