About us

rouvia is a young Berlin-based startup with a vision to make tomorrow's logistics industry greener and more efficient.

We are revolutionizing the way companies think about surface transport. While 95% of all companies currently still rely on the traditional truck, we believe in a future with drastically lower CO2 emissions. That's why we are developing the first eForwarding platform that makes the benefits of sustainable transport solutions transparent and allows environmentally friendly alternatives to trucks to be shown and booked. Through our platform, it is possible for the first time to plan and book intermodal/combined transports (i.e. a combination of truck, train, and ship). Our platform helps customers not only to contribute to sustainability but also to save costs directly.

Through intelligent data processing and a rapidly growing network, we are able to leverage more transport efficiencies and provide up to 90% lower emission transports in the future.
