 Transmetrics, a state-of-the-art AI platform developed exclusively for the supply chain industry, today announces the successful closing of a €2.5 million funding round. 

The convertible funding was led by the European Innovation Council (EIC) Fund, together with Impetus Capital, following Transmetrics’ selection in the ultra-competitive 2022 EIC Accelerator program. Transmetrics’ existing shareholders and angel investors also joined the round. As a result, the company has raised nearly €7.5 million in equity and grants since launching in 2013. 

Transmetrics will use the funds to continue to invest in its unique AI-powered analytics, forecasting, and optimization for logistics through strategic collaborations, commercial growth, and expansion into new markets. Furthermore, the company will devote resources to R&D to ensure they provide logistics companies with planning tools that support efficient and resilient supply chains.

“Transmetrics receives this round at a crucial moment for the industry and the company. The technological impact on logistics is something that moves the industry forward — we see a lot of logistics companies investing in AI and other technologies to make their business more efficient and future-proof. By closing this round, Transmetrics will be at the forefront of this movement, offering state-of-the-art solutions that empower logistics planning and provide tangible value for our clients and the sector as a whole,” said Asparuh Koev, Co-Founder and CEO of Transmetrics.

EIC’s Fund Board member, Hermann Hauser, added: “We are happy to announce our investment in Transmetrics, a leading provider of AI-powered logistics planning software. EIC’s ambition is to support cutting-edge innovations that transform industries and drive positive impact. Thanks to EIC funding, Transmetrics can develop its technology, expand its customer base, and help drive sustainability and efficiency in logistics.”

Transmetrics is well-known for its successful work with some of the leading logistics companies in the world, such as Kuehne+Nagel, Matson, DPDgroup, Gebrüder Weiss, and more. Transmetrics’ software aims to address extreme inefficiencies in logistics. For example, on average, trucks in the EU drive half-empty, wasting economic resources and creating unnecessary emissions, while logistics is responsible for 30% of the world’s carbon emissions from fuel combustion.
