How one woman is using Google Maps Platform to transform the trucking industry


Being a woman in trucking is… …a bit of a rocky road. My name is Chiamaka and I’m a female CEO in a man’s industry. There’s a lot of inefficiencies in West Africa. You book a truck. You keep your fingers crossed. Hoping, waiting to see a shipment at your door. If it shows up, fine. If it doesn’t show up, too bad. I was like why? Why do we have to go through all of this? Growing up, I always used to like to take things apart, put things together. I was always curious about what makes things work. But I wanted to solve a real problem like a real world problem. Truckr is an app where shippers can go find any kind of truck they want to move whatever kind of cargo they have. You click a button and the truck comes to you, just like magic. Google Maps Platform helps our customers see in real time where their truck is. You can watch the truck from the pick-up location to the drop off. All through the journey, they can talk to the driver in real time. Young Chiamaka would be so, super proud of where I am right now. Because when you can show that you do good work in this male dominated industry, they give you your respect. We want to expand all through West Africa and then definitely, it’s Truckr to the world!

    Tell me why is this an achievement? Because everyone thinks that a woman can't do a job that a man can? I mean, women are just humans the same as men. Nobody makes a video on a child learns how to poop but everyone wants to make a video when a woman becomes successful in what she does. What I'm trying to say is women are humans too, we should stop implying that they inferior species in any way but at the same time I don't think that anything women do is a big deal. Unless it's really a big deal. And the same should go for men. This is how equality works in my mind.

    I honestly don't give a damn about your gender. Saying that u are a woman doing a man's job doesn't impress me or earn u my respect.

    Those male truckers don't even know how to turn a wrench anyways. Trucking, medical doctors, engineers, marketing execs, Google executives, all those jobs are supposed to be reserved for women, because women don't turn wrenches.
