Trukker is an on-demand truck aggregator network with a focus on connecting smaller operators with shipping firms. It is relying on technology as a key to growth. The company has grown rapidly in 2017 and is preparing to expand its operations in 2018 to the GCC.
Raed Ventures led the Trukker’s first investment round of $1.4m with the participation of RTF, 500Startups and Alshareef Group Holding. The round aims to enhance and expand the company’s business in the region.
“The trucking industry has remained traditional for a very long time, relying on brokers to connect trucking companies and shippers, an uneven process, which is ready for technology-based transformation,” said founder and CEO Gaurav Biswas.
“Our services and products are designed to fill the gap between what the industry requires from an organized transportation company and what services are received from the unorganized small and individual owner-drivers.”
