tiramizoo GmbH offers a SaaS-platform for urban logistics and has its headquarter in Munich, Germany. Two business units use the tiramizoo-technology: The tech-platform “Transport Management System for urban logistics” (TMS) and the tech-platform “Smart City Application”. The TMS manages and optimises deliveries and tasks, whereas the Smart City Application optimises commuter flows and the utilisation of public transports. At the heart of tiramizoo’s platform is the proprietary algorithm for calculating most efficient routes and the most efficient utilisation of assets. The algorithm is unique in its capability to calculate thousands of orders/moves in a fast and reliable way by taking into account urban constraints. The platform has been used not only in Central Europe but also in Southeast Asia, e.g. Philippines, Singapore and Malaysia. tiramizoo’s customers include fleet operators, retailers, logistics companies, and smart cities. Easy Engineering: What are the main areas of activity of the company? TIRAMIZOO: Two business units: Transport Management System for urban logistics, i.e. products for optimizing deliveries and task management, and Smart City Solutions, i.e. products for optimizing commuter flows and utilization of public transport E.E: What’s the news for 2021 about new products? TIRAMIZOO: We have launched our 4 products within the TMS: tiramizoo Last Mile Collect & Deliver App;tiramizoo Last Mile JustGo;tiramizoo Last Mile Master;tiramizoo Last Mile Route Optimizer; E.E: At what stage is the market where you are currently active? TIRAMIZOO: Growing market. The last mile gets more and more important due to increasing e-commerce, more and more customer-centric logistics processes, urbanization, i.e. more and more people live in cities/ density of population is increasing, lack of resources, i.e. drivers are a limited resource, new players entering the logistics markets like Amazon, Zalando, & new technologies, i.e AI, cloud-IT, big data. E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed? TIRAMIZOO: All our products are based on the unique tiramizoo optimization algorithm. It is self-learning and optimizes based on experience, current facts and forecasts. It is completely cloud-based and agnostic in terms what to optimize; parcels and/ or commutes. The algorithm is designed for mass-data, speed and stability. It applies a „Multi-agent-system“; i.e. most efficient solution can mean „shorts distance” or “shorts time” or also “lowest CO-emission” etc….always calculated using the way of optimizing a defined cost-function Using AI the algorithm is self-learning; the so-called “distance matrix” improves continuously by using it and feeding back with real data like km driven, time spent, weather, vehicle-type used etc. E.E: What estimations do you have for 2021? TIRAMIZOO: Growing our foot-print in Germany and in Southeast Asia. In Singapore we are own subsidiary and we address markets like Singapore, Malaysia or Indonesia.
