We are enabling a smooth transition towards logistics automation by building the best human : machine collaboration platform to safely and efficiently remote operate (autonomous) vehicles.
We are proud to have strong partners and venture capitals supporting our vision and driving our growth.
"Fernride's scalable technology platform will be a crucial bridge to further automation.The exceptionally strong team and the great market potential as well as its dynamics have convinced us to invest in this German startup."
"In terms of potential, Fernride plays in the same league as our previous early-stage investments such as Volocopter or Luminar. For me, the team is already one of the strongest in Europe. I am convinced that Hendrik and his team will make a decisive contribution on the road to autonomous driving. We are proud to support Fernride on this journey."
"Fernride has created an outstanding technology to combine the best of both worlds in one platform: the human driving abilities with autonomous vehicle technologies. We follow and support their rapid growth path with excitement, knowing it will lead to success!"

Mobility has defined our lives. Benchmarking inventions like the wheel or the engine have defined transportation. Yet the next revolution is on our doorstep: autonomous driving.
However, it will take time until full automation is feasible throughout mobility; hence it will require a human-in-the-loop for quite a while.
At Fernride we redefine the role of humans in this automated future. With our technology we enable humans to control machines thus building a unique path into an automated future.
We will drive the automation of logistics - then we will change transportation and ultimately we will have an impact on mobility.
A bang for the logistics industry's buck: on April 1, automated logistics provider Fernride presents a prominent new addition. Holger Mandel, former member of the Executive Board of MAN Truck & Bus SE & CEO of MAN Truck & Bus Germany, will actively support the Munich-based startup as a board member and investor.
