Baton mission:

Eliminate waste in trucking.

Problem:

The first and final mile are the most inefficient parts of long-haul trucking

Detention & dwell

Trucks wait on average 2-3 hours to load and unload

In-transit dwell

In order to hit appointments on time, drivers allocate an additional 2 to 4 hours of slack time into their transit

Dwell between appointments

After completing a delivery, trucks often wait 3-6 hours before they can start their next load

Baton is a logistics technology platform that eliminates dwell for carriers through a nationwide network of drop zones

Drop Zones

Carriers drop off and pickup loads at Baton drop zones, and Baton's network of local drivers handle the final mile of delivery

Optimization software

Baton's software coordinates the operation between carriers, drop zones, warehouses, and local drivers
