Cloud Fret, a Moroccan logistics startup has raised $390,000 from the Azur Innovation Fund. The fund earlier made its first investment into Epicerie Verte.
The Moroccan startup was founded in 2020 to connect loaders and transporters. This solution solves the problem of empty return trucks between the two ends of the Mediterranean. Employing AI-powered technology helps track the movement of empty cargo trucks and direct them to cargo in need of transportation.
