KeepTruckin Inc., whose technology helps carriers manage fleets and track driver behavior, said it has raised $149 million to build out an online freight-matching platform and other new products in an increasingly active market for digital freight services.

The Series D funding round gave the six-year-old San Francisco-based startup a valuation of $1.2 billion, up from a $500 million valuation in its previous round in March 2018 and making it the latest in a handful of freight technology ventures to surpass the $1 billion mark.

The company started in the business making apps, software and electronic logging devices that monitor driver compliance with federal limits on driving time. Other offerings use data gathered by the ELDs to track vehicles, flag maintenance issues and reduce fuel usage.
