I feel privileged to be able to join the great team at Trucksters and contribute to achieving the company’s mission.”

More nights at home for drivers

Trucksters allows lorry drivers to sleep more at home, as the professionals only drive sections of a longer route and at relay points swap semi-trailers with another lorry to drive the goods in the opposite direction. Thanks to these relays, their quality of life is improved and the transport service perceived by their customers is faster and more cost-efficient than traditional services.

With a system based on Big Data and Artificial Intelligence, the Spanish company works like an airline through corridors and is able to achieve air transport times at ground transport prices. Trucksters manages to keep lorries running continuously, reducing road transit time by up to 50%.
