What we do

Gordian helps charging point operators and companies to make better investment planning decisions for charging infrastructure and logistics and accelerate the green and electric transition of the global transport sector.

The Gordian’s advisory and platform, a lightning-fast and easy-to-use analytics and optimization tool, allows customers to work with their specific circumstances and data to find the most cost-effective and future-proof transport electrification alternatives. 

Our Philosophy

Movement traces provide a wealth of information about transport needs that allows us to better plan and optimize resource allocations. Easy, interactive, and evidence-based planning that due to powerful and lightning-fast movement data analytics results in up to 5-times more cost-effective plans than those of our competitors.

Legend has it that a peasant farmer named Gordias fulfilled a prophecy by driving into the city of the Phyrgians on an ox-cart and so became their king. To commemorate the event, the ox-cart was tied to a post with an intricate, tightly entangled knot that could not be untied for several centuries. The man to unravel the knot was prophesized to become the ruler of all of Asia. Upon his arrival, Alexander the Great, after some unsuccessful struggle with the knot, drew his sword and sliced the knot in half with a single stroke and later went on to conquer Asia.

The name Gordian is based on the the Gordian Knot metaphor. In particular, movement traces have a similar entangled characteristic as the Gordian knot. The problems that Gordian solves are also (seemingly) intractable and Gordian provides effective and elegant solutions to such problems. By untangling knots of movement traces, Gordian unleashes sustainable transport solutions.

Towards a greener future

We aim to contribute to the transition towards a sustainable society by helping companies optimize their transport flows and maximize the benefits of electric vehicles. We view this goal as an integral part of the Gordian.

SDG Goals 7, 9, 11, and 12.
