Founded by Justin Coetzee in 2014, GoMetro aims to provide a best-in-class, OEM-agnostic electrification management platform for bus and truck operators – leading decarbonisation in a notoriously change-resistant industry. The infusion of capital will drive GoMetro’s mission to digitize heavy-duty commercial transport operations and enhance its cutting-edge fleet management platform across key markets such as the United Kingdom, EU, USA, and South Africa.
GoMetro – strategic funding for global impact
The Series A funding, led by Zenobē with participation from FutureGrowth Asset Managers and existing investors, will serve as a catalyst for GoMetro’s expansion plans and the evolution of its software platform. The company aims to empower fleet operators with robust tools for managing and optimizing all-electric fleets.
“Embracing data-driven decision-making systems that empower operators to better manage fleet utilization, optimize resources, reduce risk and enhance customer satisfaction can be a real competitive edge that catapults transport companies beyond the reach of their competitors,” Coetzee said.
GoMetro’s Bridge is a cloud-based platform that manages the data streams required for the electrification of buses and trucks. With GoMetro Bridge, users gain access to a wide range of telematics-driven features specifically designed to support their transition to all-electric fleets – using their own telematics data to provide an assessment of the fit to expected EV adoption scenarios for a fleet owner.
Navigating industry transitions
GoMetro intends to use the funding further advance its software platform, providing fleet managers with even more robust tools for all-electric fleets. Existing features will be refined and additional functionality will be added to address the changing needs of the industry.
“This Series A funding is a pivotal moment for GoMetro, and we are thrilled to have Zenobē and FutureGrowth as our lead investors in our round,” said Coetzee. “Getting the chance to apply our technology to the biggest single electric bus fleet in the United Kingdom will accelerate our research and development into supporting EV buses and trucks on GoMetro Bridge. Data-driven fleet management and telematics is entering a new golden age with EV adoption – and there is a massive opportunity in this key watershed moment in an industry transition.”
