About Peripass

From efficient & automated yards towards autonomous yard

Our Mission

To enable autonomous yards around the world.

Our Vision

We commit to let people thrive through meaningful work, while freeing them from monkey jobs.

Passionate about logistics

Our platform uniquely combines software and hardware to help clients solve typical problems related to yard operations. These issues include: truck traffic congestion and dangerous manoeuvring around their sites, instructing truck drivers in foreign languages, dispatching inefficiencies leading to limited throughput, high carrier demurrage costs, time lost on manual administrative processes or manually operating weighing systems.    

Major actors from four key sectors – Manufacturing, Food & Beverage, 3PL, and Retail – rely on our solution every day for efficient yard operations. Representative clients include: ArcelorMittal, Danone, DHL, and Intermarché, just to name a few. We operate all over Europe & The Americas and we have local offices in the Benelux, DACH, France and the UK.
