Gray is a platform that connects those who have to send a package with those who can transport it, allows individuals and transport companies to deliver goods on behalf of third parties, sharing the vehicle and the itinerary, and promises to cut logistics costs and to reduce traffic and pollution levels. Siwego, the startup that developed the platform, was founded in December 2016 by Marcello Favalli. “We are the Blablacar of goods – Favalli summarized -. We calculate the path of the package and the driver” and if there is a correspondence “we send a notification to both parties, who meet on Siwego’s chat” to define the details. The goal of the startup? “Fill the empty space of the means of transport in motion and in real time“To date, the company declares 5 thousand downloads in total and an average of 5 matches on the platform per day.

It’s time for environmental startups, the next tech giants will come from there

Forty-two years old, from Brescia, Favalli worked as a sales manager first at Nestlé and then at Campingaz, where he found himself managing problems related to logistics. “It happened that an important customer called with an urgency and, in order to satisfy him, I would take the car and bring him some products in person. During one of these emergencies, I was on the highway between Brescia and Bergamo, seeing the other cars racing on the same journey as mine, I thought: what a convenience if I could give the package to one of them who still has to go to Bergamo …
