Mobility & Supply Chain


Uberizing the trucking industry

Homoola is a technology start-up that will revolutionize the trucking industry and boost its efficiency and sustainability. We connect “shippers” who want to ship with “carriers" who deliver via a smart AI engine that uses empty truck space, saving time, money and energy.

The inland transportation industry suffers from too much inefficiency: 40% of the trucks in Gulf Cooperation Council countries return empty. Every year, truckers drive millions of miles, wasting countless litres of petrol, harming the environment and costing money, time and energy. Homoola is a solution that will cut costs, raise transparency and make money while also helping reduce the logistics industry's pollution footprint.
