The main idea is simple yet unique. In the era of e-commerce websites when people can book almost everything online ranging from a movie ticket to an airplane seat, why isn’t it possible to book a truck online? The logistics industry is vast with all the required resources but still the demand is not being met. We plan to act as the bridge between the customer and the transporter as we faced a lot of trouble while booking a truck online for our business. This was the driving force behind this venture.
