Via has acquired Israeli start-up Fleetonomy, a leading developer of advanced fleet management software. The acquisition accelerates Via’s expansion beyond public transit and into logistics and delivery.
Fleetonomy was founded in 2017 by CEO Israel Duanis and CTO Lior Gerenstein, and has partnered with a roster of brands ranging from Toyota to BP to Audi.
Via Co-Founders, Daniel Ramot and Oren Shoval, say: “We have been consistently impressed by Israel, Lior, and the entire Fleetonomy team, and by the beautifully-designed and exceptionally-engineered products they have created. We share a vision for the future of mobility and look forward to realizing this vision together.”
Israel Duanis, CEO and co-founder of Fleetonomy, comments: “When Lior and I founded Fleetonomy three years ago, we had a very big mission in mind — to provide a new way of managing fleet based services. We believe that providing a data-driven, efficient, and reliable suite of solutions will help our customers become leaders of the on demand economy.”
He adds: “By joining Via, we will be able to expand and extend this mission and work together on Via’s great vision of changing the landscape of transportation.”
Founded in 2012, Via uses new technologies to power public mobility systems, optimizing networks of dynamic shuttles, buses, wheelchair accessible vehicles, school buses, and autonomous vehicles around the globe.
