Team Comags

Number of Participants: 4

Team Biography

Team Comags is a group of friends based in Sydney and Wollongong in NSW. Between regular visits between these cities and travel to other parts of NSW, we have always wondered how truckies manage fatigue, considering the distances and hours they would have travelled. If fatigue is real for those of us who drive short and not-so-long distances, it would have been a greater challenge to be the driver of a big rig covering very long distances.

We entered the ATA Hackathon to try to contribute to solving that challenge by pooling together a combined experience of more than 50 years from different areas of business. This is at the same time an opportunity for us to metamorphose to the startup team we have always wanted us to be.
