Gatik announces new alliance to transform B2B short haul logistics

Gatik has formed another new partnership to boost its autonomous logistics services across another US market

Middle-mile logistics company Gatik has announced the formation of a new strategic alliance with Japanese trading and investment company ITOCHU to accelerate the future of B2B short haul logistics.

ITOCHU Corporation will invest in Gatik to accelerate the deployment and scaling of Gatik’s autonomous delivery network across North America, with the collaboration aiming to further transform the B2B middle-mile logistics sector.

By using Gatik’s autonomous vehicle technology, the pair are looking to provide extensive automotive resources and expertise to the growing market.

This alliance is the latest in a series of strategic partnerships that Gatik has formed to revolutionise the North American logistics landscape through its freight-only service.

By working with industry leaders, Gatik is addressing the logistics sector’s mounting pressures, including surging e-commerce demands, critical driver shortages and rising operational costs.

“We’re thrilled to strengthen our relationship with ITOCHU, further solidifying Gatik’s position as the leading provider of autonomous transportation as a service for the middle mile,” Gatik senior vice president of commercialisation and operations Philip Reinckens says.

“This partnership is another example of the growing momentum and investment behind our technology and operations and a testament to the increasing demand for safe, reliable autonomous logistics.

“Together with our growing list of partners, we’re looking forward to continuing to transform the sector for the benefit of our Fortune 500 customers and their end consumers.”

ITOCHU Corporation general manager Atsushi Kuromi says Gatik’s cutting-edge autonomous technology aligns with its goal to expand its presence in the US automotive and logistics market.

“With their demonstrated safety record and methodical approach to scaling, we see immense potential in Gatik’s ability to further optimise middle mile delivery, address driver shortages and ultimately create a more sustainable and efficient supply chain for the benefit of consumers,” Kuromi says.

“This strategic partnership not only strengthens our existing operations but also opens doors for innovative solutions across our global network.”
