What is Baton?

Baton is the Silicon Valley based technology innovation lab for Ryder, a leading logistics company with 260,000 vehicles under management and $10.7 billion purchased and/or executed in customer freight moves. In September of 2022 Ryder acquired Baton to be their technology innovation lab. Prior to Ryder, Baton was a venture backed start up that was voted the #4 most disruptive company in freight (Amazon was #3)!

The problem we’re solving

Our mission is to eliminate waste in supply chain by creating a digital platform that uses AI to improve how freight is planned. There are 500 million hours wasted in trucking each year, over 3 billion gallons of fuel wasted per year from trucks idling, and 1 in 5 trucks on the road driving empty at any given point. This has a massive impact on the environment, the lives of millions of drivers, and ultimately, the cost of transportation that we all pay.
