The Backstory

After building a trucking company in Venezuela with over 400 employees, Guillermo Garcia arrived as an immigrant to the US to start a local LTL trucking company in Miami, FL. That company grew steadily into an FTL over-the-road operation with more than 40 trucks. As the owner of a small trucking business, Guillermo saw firsthand the challenges that independent truckers and carriers face.

The Challenges

01.

Large carriers getting the biggest piece of the pie.

02.

Brokers working in silos, making information hard to get.

03.

Some brokers preferring to work with large carriers or more established trucking companies.

04.

Lack of trust between all the parties involved.

05.

Margins so thin that any small mistake could put you out of business, fast.

The Opportunity

Guillermo believed that truckers shouldn’t have to choose between running under their own authority and having access to better opportunities. He teamed up with Miguel Sucre, a Computer Scientist who had developed part of the systems Guillermo’s company used. Together, they set out to reimagine the trucking industry and empower independent trucking companies to thrive.
