Truck drivers are the backbone of the American economy. They move 71% of our freight (~$800bn annually) and make up 6% of the American workforce. But the trucking industry is fragmented, opaque, and structurally misaligned, so drivers end up spending way too much time and money just to access the information they need to run their own businesses. We believe there is a smarter way.
Drivers already know what they need to be successful. Our mission is to empower them to do what they do best – and we need your help.
TruckSmarter was started in early 2021 by Paolo Bernasconi and Daniel Kao on a mission to democratize the freight industry and empower truck drivers with modern day tools.
We're a Series B company fortunate to work with world-class institutional investors and many of the brightest minds in the business: Tony Xu (Co-Founder & CEO, DoorDash), Ryan Petersen (Co-Founder & CEO, Flexport), Jett McCandless (Founder & CEO, Project44), Zach Perret (Co-Founder & CEO, Plaid), Eric Glyman (Co-Founder, CEO & Ramp), and more.
We call ourselves the Load Boars. Wild and free, the Load Boars are a team of industry insiders-turned-outlaws relentlessly putting truck drivers first. As a part of our sounder (that’s what you call a group of boars!), you’ll work with great minds from Uber, Uber Freight, Plaid, Doordash, Convoy, Stripe, Strava, Amazon, Square, and Dropbox, among others, to overhaul outdated systems and build new ones.
